I talked with Michael as he was talking to our webmaster about this
conundrum,

Art told him that when you type capital letters it means you're yelling
He didn't know that!
[as i didn't and STILL use capitals all the time and told people on the
boards that it doesn't mean that I'm yelling
sometimes i forget to turn it off (it's like the old man driving from
Utah to California with his left turn signal on
sheeeesh...he's just old
we're all gonna get there
...if we live / but that's another story
sometimes I want to emphasize things
rarely yelling, if ever
but I told them to live with it / it's no big deal
and I don't wanna change

they understood and went along with the program

In any case when Art told Michael that capitals meant yelling
he mentioned it to me on the phone - he was talking to both of us on 2
diff lines

Simultaneously, at the very same moment - I could hear her in their apt,
Michael's wife and I both said at exactly the same time to him:
"You didn't know that?"

I found it amusing that Michael who prides himself on his computer savvy
[it's far above mine]
didn't know that

I think a bit of understanding on your part may go a long way here

and that perhaps something approximating a gentle apology MAY be in
order...

you can't expect everybody to know all this shit all the time
and all this netiquette can get to be a large load of anal-retentive CRAP
if you let yourself get swept away with it
like pc
and rights
and who's feelings get hurt

y'know

Paul again
