Dear friends, won't you help me spread this good idea of Heather Champ's?
A MODEST PROPOSAL
We all have people in our lives who WRITE IN ALL CAPS. They mean well,
in fact they're lovely people who either are enduring a horrific
keyboard malfunction or don't know any better. Chances are that we'll
all be spending some "quality" time with them in the weeks leading up
to the new year, perhaps gathering around candles, trees or turkeys.
I propose that we all take a few moments to spread the peace and love
of a world devoid of ALL CAPS emails, posts, comments, etc. Just think
of what a beautiful world it would be…
Failing that, take a knife and pop that "caps lock" sucker of
their keyboard, tuck it in your pocket and run like mad (back to the
turkey, ham, etc.). Those of us, like myself who work in Customer Care,
will be ever grateful for your endeavours.
I am mercifully not so afflicted in my immediate family, but I, alas, can't claim never to encounter it in my work…
