"No Way To Prevent This", Says Only Nation Where This Regularly
Given that 74m Americans just voted for the appalling Trump, do
you have any even vaguely practical suggestions? I can't think of
That's a funny thing. We don't know how many voted for Trump. Reality
Winner is in prison because she leaked a document saying the Russians
hacked the voter rolls in 19 states.
So after telling us for months that we had a "free and fair election"
and that there's "no evidence of voter fraud", the moment someone
points out that Trump may have lost but he still got more votes than
any other president in history, you suddenly say the election was
fraudulent because "muh Russia!"
You're LYING. Fucking LYING. We HAVE vote totals, and there is near
ZERO evidence of any interference or fraud.
No, that would be Hutt's claim here, not mine. Do try and keep up.
Your name is at the top of the post. Own your bullshit.
LOL! My name was at the top, because I *responded* to Hutt, you idiot. But
Hutt is the one who made the claim that you spasmed out about with all your
randomly capitalized words and profanity.
You can't follow attributions, so I'm suddenly responsible for Hutt's lies?
That's a new one. You absolutely cannot admit when you're wrong about
something, can you?
None of my capitalization is anywhere near 'random'. Another word you

You new here?
Notice how FPP, having realized that he's committed yet another "months"
blunder, is now completely avoiding addressing it and is instead trying
to misdirect into a discussion of how he uses capital letters.
I've already said I made a mistake? But the truth doesn't seem to
register to you.
But, then... when have you EVER cared about accuracy?
Notice how Dimwit, won't accept that I simply explained your latest
idiocy. You ever hear of 'WIRED"? They think you're a fucking moron too.
"Using capital letters to indicate strong feeling may be the most famous
example of typographical tone of voice. But there are different kinds of
strong feelings. Linguist Maria Heath asked a cross section of internet
users to rate the difference in emotion between a message in all caps
and the same message in standard capitalization. She found that all-cap
styling made people judge happy messages as even happier: “IT’S MY
BIRTHDAY!!!” feels happier than “It’s my birthday!!!” But it didn’t make
sad messages any sadder: “i miss u” is just as pathetic as “I MISS U.”
When it came to anger, the results were mixed: Sometimes caps increased
the anger rating and sometimes they didn’t, a result which Heath
attributed to the difference between “hot” anger (FIGHT ME) and “cold”
anger (“fight me”).
A single capped word, on the other hand, is simply EMPHATIC. Looking at
examples of all-capped words on Twitter, Heath found that the most
common single ones included NOT, ALL, YOU, and SO, as well as
advertising words like WIN and FREE: the same kinds of words that are
often emphasized in spoken conversations (or commercials). When we want
to emphasize something in speech, we often pronounce it louder, faster,
or higher in pitch—or all three at once. All caps is a typographic way
of conveying the same set of cues."
Duuuuhhhhh. Seems like everybody BUT you knows what individual words
capitalized means on Usenet.

That's directly from WIRED.
You know WIRED, right? Or are you as ignorant about them, too?
