    umm.. yeah. Can't type in all caps. WTF?

    So here's a question. Has this "feature" been introduced at some time or what? I'm sure I remember being able to type a word in all caps at some time.

    If some ass wants to yell and type their entire post in caps lock, let them. All they do is look like tits, and it doesn't happen that often.

    But now this magic wonderful feature prevents those various times when one has good reason to type a word in all caps.

    WTF people, can anyone explain this?

    edit: so ok, I dunno, sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. Does it just look for when a whole post is in caps? Thus inadvertently borking any attempts at a one-word reply that needs to be in caps, or an acronym?

    If you try to do the entire post in caps, the filters won't allow it. Been that way for probably forever, certainly at least a few years.

    BUT IF YOU WANT TO TYPE LIKE THIS, JUST REMEMBER TO [removed by admin]*.

    ^ yeah, I figured as much (hence my edit). It was annoying the hell out of me, but then I figure out that must be what's going on. Shame though, it's kind of fun when some maroon yells an entire post out, just begs to be made fun of.

    Who would yell an entire post on this civilized forum, pray tell?

    You can send a PM if you'd rather not mock that person in public .

    I've been on a few sites where there is one moron who will only type in caps.
    I mean every post without exception.

    Now that's buggy and I'm glad it's not allowed here.
    "I didn't see him/her" is a confession, not an excuse.
