CAPS LOCK
I'm just curious about people's opinions.  Is it that insulting if someone is typing with caps on.  I mean, If the keyboard have the options, why not use it.  I'm not sure how or who started to say that caps on is shouting out loud but I mean, is it that big of deal???

It's basic netiquette. Caps is akin to shouting. If you want to emphasis a point use italics, or maybe even caps as a one off. If everything is in caps it makes the person who wrote the message appear ignorant (and just a little bit stupid).
