I AM NOT YELLING (HONEST)

AS MANY OF YOU MAY (OR MAY NOT) KNOW, MY FAVORITE BAND IS DISTURBED. THE BAND’S FRONTMAN, DAVID DRAIMAN, HAS A TWITTER ACCOUNT AND HIS TWEETS IN ALL CAPS. IT’S HIS STYLE AND HE’S BEEN DOING IT FOR YEARS, STARTING WITH THE NOW DEFUNCT DISTURBED MESSAGE BOARD (I.E. “DMB”). 

LATELY, DAVID’S BEEN GETTING A LOT OF GRIEF AND STUPID COMMENTS FROM PEOPLE WHO ALWAYS ASK WHY HE TWEETS IN CAPITOL LETTERS. HE’S GOTTEN TO THE POINT THAT HE HAS ASKED OTHER FOLLOWERS TO EXPLAIN IT TO NEWBIES TO HIS ACCOUNT. SOME PEOPLE ARE JUST STUPID ABOUT THE WHOLE THING. TODAY, THERE WAS A TWEET WHERE DAVID WAS ASKED, “WHAT ARE YOUR VIEWS ON CAPITAL LETTERS?”

NOW, CONSIDERING THE ABOVE, WHAT DO YOU THINK DRAIMAN’S ANSWER WAS?

“@ThatJoePayneKid: TAKE A WILD GUESS SMART GUY. STRKE 1.”

PERSONALLY, I THINK IF YOU WANT TO TYPE IN ALL CAPS, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO. THE HELL WITH SO-CALLED “INTERNET PROTOCOL” DICTATING THAT CAPS IS AKIN TO SHOUTING. IF YOU GOT SOMETHING TO SAY, WHY NOT SHOUT ABOUT IT? THOSE WHO TAKE EXCEPTION CAN GO POUND SALT.

THAT’S WHY THIS POST IS IN CAPITAL LETTERS. TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THIS:
