INDIGNANT POST IN HONOR OF CAPS LOCK DAY

I KNOW HOW THESE POSTS WORK! I HAVE A STRONG OPINION ABOUT THIS. I WAS WORRIED YOU MIGHT NOT NOTICE! BUT YOU CAN TELL THAT I FEEL STRONGLY ABOUT THIS ON ACCOUNT OF THE SIZE OF ALL THE LETTERS!

tHAT LETTER WAS SMALL BY ACCIDENT.

THIS IS A MISSPELED WORD THAT WILL FIGURE PROMINENTLY IN MY THESIS.

THIS IS MY THESIS! THIS IS A SENTENCE THAT DESCRIBES PEOPLE WHO DON'T AGREE WITH MY THESIS IN A NEGATIVE WAY!

THIS IS THE PART OF THE POST WHERE YOU START TO WONDER IF MAYBE I DON'T KNOW HOW TO SHUT OFF THE CAPS LOCK KEY BECAUSE THIS DOESN'T SEEM LIKE A POINT I MEANT TO EMPHASIZE.

SENTENCE WITH EXCLAMATION POINTS!!!!!

INSULT TO SOMEONE!

THIS SENTENCE INVOLVES CHILDREN AND CONCERNS ABOUT THEIR FUTURE.

EXPLETIVE! MILDER EXPLETIVE!

SENTENCE INDICATING THAT EITHER BARACK OBAMA OR SARAH PALIN IS AN EPITHET, MODIFIED BY ANOTHER EXPLETIVE.

SOMETHING FROM MY CHILDHOOD. SOMETHING ABOUT WHAT THEY HAVE ON TELEVISION THESE DAYS. SENTENCE THAT INCLUDES THE WORD "NOWADAYS" OR "THEY NEVER USED TO."

SENTENCE THAT STARTS WITH "HOW COME" BUT ENDS WITH AN EXCLAMATION POINT!

SENTENCE TELLING YOU, IN CONCLUSION, TO DO SOMETHING MISSPELLED!!!!!!!!!

You're probably on a tight deadline and want to get out of there for the weekend, but in the future I suggest you proofread your column before posting it.

Most people, including myself, won't read a post that is in all capitals.

I know you're new here, so I hope your boss will give you a pass on this one. Will you please correct your column and re-post it so we all can read it?

Also, for people thinking about commenting, please try to understand that Alex is new here, and don't be too hard on her. Everyone makes mistakes when they're new.
