I really can't imagine typing a whole thing in caps unless I had caplocks on and was too lazy to turn it off? It would be a pain in the arse to hold the shift key that long.
Yep, I also use caps to emphasize, not shout. I think I'm too old to see all caps as shouting unless it's a whole sentence. I learned to type on a typewriter and there was no such thing as bold and underlining required backspacing or re-aligning the paper after the paragraph was finished. LR [ctrl] B before typing will turn on the bold, [crtl] u = underline, [ctrl] i = Italics, etc. gotta love old school word processing commands .

I took a class once and it's a proven fact, that all caps is harder to read than lowercase or a mix of upper/lower case.
