I didn't realize this was even a significant issue, especially for those who don't play mafia where this is actually kind of a minor annoyance... For regular posts I don't see why this should matter at all, but would be interested in understanding why it's a big deal to some people...

16kadams, (because you are running for DDO President) could you please explain your support for this idea and why you think the caps filter is a hindrance and needs to be ended?

No caps? I'd be more interested in a no cursing (because it's really annoying when someone pisses you off and then the site wags the pointer finger at you and holds out a bar of soap threateningly).

Remove the all caps thing? We have better things to do with our time.

I'm kinda reconsidering this. I think that the all caps should be removed, but it's a minor hassle, compared to other things that could really improve the site.

Let's take this scenario and enlarge it to other offices of responsibility:

Small Boy's Parents: Our son was raped, and you're doing nothing.
State: I'm sorry, but we have more important cases to work on, like the murdering of our Senator's daughter.

No matter how small, they're obligated to listen to whatever the heck we have to say.

The all-caps filter is an inconvinence. Rape of a small boy is not. You are conflating to very seperate ideas. And Juggle isn't very active, anyway.

Put me on the list. If I cannot post in all caps, then I cannot effectively yell at people.

And that's terrible.

Lolz. Perhaps that is one reason why DDO disallowed all caps. To try and keep a more "civilised community" perhaps...

Most of us can have use all caps and not abuse it. And besides, some people just need to be yelled at.

It wont be banned guys........ It will be given a trial that will last a couple of days and then someone is going to forfeit a round and completely botch the trial, and then the no all caps filter will go on to start its own campaign to be president to cut down on banning........

Why the need to allow all caps? If anything, the filter is a measure that can aid in the creation of an atmosphere of sensibility and civility. Similarly, the filter on common curses serves a similar role. There is no need for such vulgar discourse, although such a statement as this is likely to be countered with some repartee involving repeated swearing.

Besides, there are far more pressing matters to address.
