When someone breaks your rules Grits it is easy to identify their age. This is the common way for our 14-19 year population to communicate.

I'm 62 years old and do not how this "yelling"bit got started. My first typewriter was an old Underwood noisless portable( dad was in the office equipment business) vintage about 1939-40. It had all caps, block letters and nobody considered it "yelling"

Well, with the advent of texting, instant messaging, etc, folks have tried to find ways to express themselves more clearly, and express emotions as well. Emoticons help with that, but the use of bold, italic, underlining, and caps all help to reach that end.
