YANBU.It's annoying and it's poor netiquette. It's the equivalent of shouting.

You used them.

<<misses point completely grin>>

YABU, we cannot win someone complained about over use of bold recently too.
I LOVE the odd well placed capital letter and it's a good way of putting a bit of emphasis on something using a format that doesn't always get the point across clearly.

Thunderduck Tue 18-Aug-09 18:07:07

I fail to see the need for emphasis when posting.

cocolepew Tue 18-Aug-09 18:08:32

Italics are the best thing ever.

Thunderduck Tue 18-Aug-09 18:09:58

Yes use italics or bold if you really feel the need to emphasise a phrase.

What about people who can't spell "too"?! [wink}

TheApprentice Tue 18-Aug-09 18:11:14

Or people who can't get the emoticons right...

I'll try again..... wink

People don't underline enough IMO

God that took ages

I'm surprised nobody's found a way to go up at the end of their sentences? Like with the Australian accent? Seems to be all the rage these day? Does my head right in...innit grin

Leaving off the question mark at the end of a question really ANNOYS me wink and so do split infinitives

HerHonesty Tue 18-Aug-09 19:03:45

ok ok points taken guys. written in haste in a fit of annoyance.

HumphreyCobbler Tue 18-Aug-09 19:08:40

Bold doesn't work for me, I have no idea why.

landrover Thu 20-Aug-09 13:09:43

RustyBear Thu 20-Aug-09 13:16:03

MummyDragon - apparently you don't have the same problem with leaving off a full stop?

Cymbeline Thu 20-Aug-09 13:36:15

Reiterate is COMPLETELY the wrong word, you do know that OP? smile

GibbonInARibbon Thu 20-Aug-09 13:52:31
