you ever think to yourself that you are too cool to use capital letters or punctuation so you type like this

every thought on a separate line to add to the confusion of the poor bastard reading this

it makes the post look longer doesn't it, almost as long as my d

it clearly shows how you really don't give a fuck, you are a maverick and a madlad in both the internet and real life

a real man's man and a slayer of poons

ever given this a thought broseph?

not even autocorrect can stop this train, choo choo mothertruckers

this is the most philosophically strong thread

every single post has been genius

it's like a gigantic pile of warm blankets that just came out of the drier and everything smells like fabric softener

I want to hibernate in it while star trek runs non stop

Do you guys just turn off auto capitalization on your phones, or are you always typing from a desktop where you can just ignore the shift key?

Even though I think it's disgusting, I could understand just typing fast on a desktop and not bothering with capitalization, but to specifically disable the auto capitalization feature on phones seems strange to me, what benefit does that provide?

i spent the better part of my twenties in math tomes, totally fell outta love with capitalization for one reason or another

bottom line is i like to write the way i write and i'm not gonna change soon

People who don't write properly or type in text speak will be first for the gas chambers when I am eventually in power.

Also People That Type Like This Are Doing Us A Similar Public Disservice.


I believe they are trolling everyone who makes an effort to read their postings. Why would they assault the reader so? The very people who are their would-be target audience? 🤔


at least people who type like this are legible without making someone want to gouge out their own eyes

I type like this when I text unimportant people. When I text girls, I use capitals to show my cultural supremacy.



In theory, at least. Reality: My contact list is empty, just like my heart.

protip: in MS word if you highlights a series of words or the whole thing (shortcut ctrl+A) and hit shift+f3, it will toggle between all lowercase, only capital of first letter, or all caps. Too bad it doesn't work here lol
