People Need To Stop Using All Caps In Email Subject Lines

Okay, this is more of a rant than anything else. Recently, I have received more than one email to my personal email account where the entirety of the email’s subject line was in all caps.

This isĀ annoying. And needs to stop. NOW.

Why? Well, it is simply much easier for the human eye to read text when it is properly capitalized (either in Title Case or Sentence Case) then when it is printed in all capital letters. And while, yes, I will write programming code in all caps, program source code is a completely different animal (and normally the audience of that source code is a very specific audience).

So, if you don’t want me to almost immediately ignore your email, please, write the subject in either Title or Sentence Case, and NOT in all caps.
