ABOUT BIG LETTERS

CAPS

THERE SEEMS TO BE SOME CONCERN AMONG BOTH FRIENDS AND STRANGERS ALIKE AS TO MY CURRENT PENCHANT FOR CAPITALIZATION. IT COULD WELL BE BECAUSE THIS IS, TO SOME, A SOCCER BLOG AND THAT'S WHAT MANY OF US SOCCER BLOGGERS DO: YELL AND MAKE NOISE ABOUT ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING WHETHER IT NEEDS TO BE A BIG DEAL OR NOT BECAUSE, JUST LIKE TNT, WE KNOW DRAMA. SO PERHAPS IT'S A STATEMENT BUT I'M NOT SURE.

IT COULD ALSO BE DOWN TO ONE OF THE FOLLOWING:
  • I'M BORED WITH THE TOR LOOK
  • THIS IS A CRY FOR HELP
  • I'M PRETENTIOUS AND ART-DAMAGED
  • I'M RUINING MY SITE IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE NEW GAWKER
  • THIS IS A GOOD WAY TO KEEP BLOGGER X FROM LINKING TO ME AGAIN
  • IT'S A CODED SIGNAL TO THE REBELLION THAT THE TIME TO ATTACK IS NOW
  • BECAUSE HELVETICA IS AN IMPORTANT FONT, MADE MORE SO IN CAPS
  • A MISGUIDED ATTEMPT AT BEING 'PUNK ROCK' AND/OR 'AVANT'
  • BECAUSE I THOUGHT CARLES MIGHT THINK I'M COOL & LINK TO ME
  • A SYMPTOM OF A BLOGGER MIDLIFE CRISIS
  • TO WEED OUT THOSE THAT ARE NOT DOWN TO PARTY
  • All or none of the above
I REALLY HAVE NO ANSWER BUT AT LEAST NOW I KNOW THAT PEOPLE ARE READING BECAUSE THE CHANGE HAS ELICITED MORE REACTION THAN ANYTHING ELSE IN A WHILE.

There is a good chance I will stop reading your blog if the all caps continues.

ALL CAPS SUCKS TO READ.

And MLSsoccer.com is starting to catch up to you with their daily postings of hand-to-face flops, public arrests, and other nonsense not found elsewhere (unless that's all you're own doing, in which case, it's making your own personal blog less potentate. Maybe you do need the ALL CAPS).

I've been a long time reader of your site SF, but the all caps is very annoying, and I will definitely be reading your blog a lot less if the all caps continues. Not sure if you care, but I just thought I'd give you my opinion on it.

Yeah man, I dig your blog but to be honest the caps is ridiculous. You don't provide enough quality content that can't be found on every other soccer blog to make it worth slogging through.

Damn, this harsher than the gawker comment section.

I don't see the problem, just different to read.
