    Please follow these simple tips. They will help you get more out of this forum.

    DON'T TYPE IN ALL CAPS. IT MEANS YOU ARE YELLING AND MORE SO IT JUST HURTS PEOPLE'S EYES.

    Don't Type With The First Letter Of Every Word Capitalized. Hurts The Eyes.

    please use some sort of punctuation it is hard to read a post when there is no punctuation i am going to just keep typing so you can try to read this and see how hard it is i know it is faster to type without such things as commas and periods but it will be easier for everyone to read this post isn't to make anyone mad it is just a few pointers that will be apreciated by a lot of people on the forum so do not take it personally i am just trying to help you out a little bit

    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. :hammerhead:

    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. :usflag:
