Hi girls!
Just a quick note about using caps in your postings: We would really like everyone on our forum to use upper and lower case when you're typing both your titles and your messages. Caps are hard to read in big chunks and have the feeling of "shouting" when used on the web. We will sometimes use caps for our titles that we want you to notice, and would like to reserve the use of caps for those things alone.

Thanks everyone!
Carol

Not to make light of a serious request, but I have a relevant story/tangent:

The other day a friend posted this quote on fb: "Therefore, we need not expect to have better states until we have better men." -Plato

I responded with: LOL

As I clicked "Submit" it dawned on me that the all-caps lol was a real throwback; it's been a decade since that style was commonplace in the world of acronyms. I often find myself Adding Emphasis by Adding Capital Letters, but (almost) NEVER all-caps.

Obviously, the "better men" thing really got me!

:)
