>ALL CAPS means shouting.
Surely this is recent convention. Telegrams used to be all caps. So
did the first computers I used, via teletypes and then dumb terminals.
>It also makes your messages much harder to read.
This is certainly true. But so do no-caps, which receive many fewer
flames, and no-punctuation, and raw HTML, which I get far too often
(though not on this list, thanks, Victor).
Common-sense guideline: you are trying to communicate. Make sure your
audience gets the content and isn't turned off by the form. --PR
