Using CAPS in text is the typed equivalent of screaming. I do it for emphasis, but my relatives tend to use it because they're stupid and want to make sure the latest "FW: FW: FW: FW: FW: FW: FUNNY ANIMAL PICTURES" chain email they've sent really grabs my attention. But apparently it's all (CAPS) systems go if we're talking breaking news! CAPS-LOCK: BECAUSE BREAKING NEWS CAN'T WAIT FOR THOSE LOWERCASE PUSSIES.

Thanks to Sharon, who actually does scream all the time in real life and may or may not be related to Susie Greene.
