Posts typed all in lower case

I’ve noticed an increase in the number of people typing their posts here on Daily Paul all in lower case.
What’s that about ?
Is it a statement of non-conformity ?
Is it an attempt to draw attention, like wearing a baseball cap side-ways, instead of straight-up ? The bill on a baseball cap was designed to keep the sun out of your eyes – not your ear. It may look silly, but you have the right to wear it as you wish - it's your hat, and your body !.

Some don’t use apostrophes. Don’t becomes dont, wasn’t becomes wasnt … I guess I'll becomes ill ( LOL ) ... for some doesn’t becomes dosent. What’s the next step … shouldn’t becomes shudnt, and doesn’t becomes duznt ?

I’m just curious about what statement is being made.

As a believer in free speech, I am not questioning your “right” to post as you wish, but to me it looks like …

… another step in the dumbing-down of America.

Hey, oruval !

I received your e-mail.

Quite juvenile !

I'm honestly glad it's just not...

new generation typing like:

U goin wit us 2 tha stor l8r? Hit me bck.

Seriously...at least we can read the lower case. But I really think it's just about typing style instead of being "English class" correct. I can usually tell people by their typing style coupled with the "tone" of their writing. I would know if it was someone pretending to be my husband emailing me or my mom or best friend because I know their style of type. I tend to use (...) between a lot of phrases as more of a pause between thoughts instead of correct sentences.

Being a writer or sorts, I notice every mistake and incorrect grammar. It catches my attention but I over look it.

no statement to make..until now

for me it's just informal typing I reserve for communicating with friends.

human nature

we naturally try to get things done using the least amount of work. me myself, i view this as just chating about ideas. if i were writing an essay or something in that area, i would make it grammatically correct. since im just hangin at the spot, chattin w/ my homeboyz, and not at a business meeting, i dont dress up. relaxation.

hmm odd

I always do mine in caps ...Like A Newspaper Article - Just In Case Someone Finds My Thread So Profound They Are Compelled To Paste It Over to the Folks at Nobel. I guess I just want to be prepared.

First impressions count... even in here.

I understand what you are saying. As in life, how we first appear to someone can make or break their opinion of us, sorry to say. Of course we're taught not to judge the book by its' cover, but that requires someone being able to get beyond the 1st impression to begin with. Since the main reason we are here, to promote freedom and liberty, I do think it is a serious enough subject to appear that we take it as such by how we "educate" via the written word.

quick one handed typing

thats all.

Newspeak

Reminds me of the newspeak in Orwell 1984. The only language where the vocabulary gets smaller every year.

As far as I can tell...

it's almost expected that dp posters think "there" is spelled "their" and that "their" is spelled "there..." and we also are inclined to the view that "guerilla" is spelled "gorilla." It's good to have *something* to agree on. So there...I mean so their.

vee havs been

infiltrated by ze gramma nazis. LOL.

Oh and for the Dumbing down of America.. I've seen your arguments claiming 9/11 wasn't an inside job.. That alone shows poorly on you.

next you'll be complaining about people expressing with excessive use of punctuation!!!!!!!!!!!

Self bump your post with a response to this if you don't want it to die.

oruval,

I'm just wondering what this style of posting is all about. As I stated, everyone is free to post as they wish. But free speech applies to me, as well.

As for this comment:
" I've seen your arguments claiming 9/11 wasn't an inside job. " Not likely - I read some of those threads, but do not take part in them.
But you have to bring it into almost every thread that comes up - no matter how irrelevant !

I'm saying your complaining

has little to no relevance. The message is the message.

I brought it up because on one hand you sit there and make people feel stupid for not having great grammar and that drives people away.. when you yourself cannot even grasp the concept and physics that show 9/11 to be a false flag.

Call 9/11 a litmus test for hypocracy.

I didn't say you didn't need to stop posting.. just discuss things of better relevance than poor grammar. Okay.. good. now go have a cookie.

Oruval- I see you as a guardian of the truth

esp. regarding 9/11. It sucked when you were gone a couple weeks ago. We SHOULD question anyone that still doesn't believe 9/11 was a false flag, after they look at the facts. They are either mental midgets, stupid, or working for "the man" IMO . There's just too much evidence that proves 9/11 was a false flag.

"Whether you listen to the left side of congress' mouth or the rightside, either way it's the same mouth"

oruval,

So, I'm only entitled to free speech if I am talking about subjects that you deem worthy of discussion ?

This is NOT a thread about 9/11.

Hey ass.

Stop putting words in my mouth. I asked you to discuss. Grammar isn't as important as 9/11 being understood to cause false wars and kill people.
I didn't tell you to stop talking. I asked you then showed how pointless compared to other things this thread truly is.

Now I'm not going to post here again and let the free market of ideas kill this.

oruval,

calling me an ass "dosent" add anything to your credibility.

If you wish to discuss something other than the topic of this thread ... feel free to not participate in this one.

I believe it is a spillover from the instant messaging...

...and phone-texting generation. It has become the popular vernacular and is accepted in those venues.

I hope they don't do it on their resumes as well.

I may not know the truth, but I know when I'm being lied to...

I may not know the truth, but I know when I'm being lied to...

For years and only until

For years and only until recently I didn't capitalize or use punctuation only because I'm not a fast typist so it saved me time to just let it flow...Not sure what the big deal is..of course unless you're anal retentive or something...

Logic, I'm not a fast typist either,

but I feel that if a post is not worth the time to make it readable and understandable, it just may not be worth posting.

If that's anal-retentive, then I guess that I fit the definition.

I do not

capitalize certain words, because I do not have any respect for the person, object, or group being discussed.

Words such as: republican, democrat, government, state, pelosi, bush, obama, mccain, irs, fbi,cia, nwo, democracy, fema, etc., I will not capitalize.

Words such as Freedom, Liberty, Constitution, Natural Rights, Dr. Paul, and others I will capitalize.

Thank you Dr. Paul for making me act on what I already knew was right.

*May the only ones to touch your junk, be the ones you want to touch your junk.*

It's too

bad there was not something lower than lower case.

I am gross and perverted, I'm obsessed and deranged, I have existed for years but very little has changed, I'm the tool of the government and industry too. Have you guessed me yet??
I'm the slime oozing out from your TV set.

lol.

lol.

I like that

You haven't spent much time in chat rooms have you ?

You want to witness a real nightmare , in a chat room the conversations go so fast no one has time to spell check and it all becomes almost like illiterate shorthand .

So, sentinel,

should the Daily Paul deteriorate to chat room quality ?

Not at all I believe that even while speaking you should

always conduct yourself intelligently , You hurt your case in a big way when you come across as illiterate. Sadly though in this culture we are being designed to believe that "stupid is sexy" I used to watch the judge shows on TV when I still had one and I could not believe what I was watching. My teen daughter was a prime example of illegible type but her and her friends all did the same thing and somehow understood it. I think it was some type of code language :)

speaking of a wasted day, I've got to log off and clean my house. I think I'll do it while drinking a beer.
