    God is the first big clue. I am sure that religious fanatics won't to emphasize their point which is obvious and important for all.

    I have observed over time that tantrums are typical of the others.

    I have a feeling that it is just that they need to shout. I don't know whether that's for their benefit, but it might just be that they don't feel we'll listen if they don't.

    I tend not to listen regardless of whether they speak in capitals and shout or use a more conventional means to convey their messages.

    I know. I'm going to get very high red numbers for this aren't I?

    Nick has it, typing in capitals in literature is the same as shouting.

    They think God (or whoever/whatever) they believe is likes big letters.

    They know that rational people don't pay attention to their rantings in regular upper and lower case.  So they hope to make us pay attention by "shouting" in ALL CAPS.  Doesn't work any more than all the wacko shouting, bouncing TV evangelists.

    Because they are typing with only one hand most of the time. I have no idea why, at all. LOL. BB16

    I'm not sure. I suppose sometimes people who lack a vocabulary or a coherent arguement will try to make up for it by shouting. Words in all capital letters are supposed to represent shouting. Unfortunately, these same people don't always know proper grammer or else they would simply use an exclamation point.
