I have read the rules and regulations... as well as the OFF limit topics... I am ok with all of this.. however... I am a bit concerned about the capital letters... as that is part of my writing style... I use DOTS .... and capitals for emphasis... If this is going to be a problem.. I will have to ask for my account to be closed... as there is no way I will be able to train myself to change this habit... I have had this writing style for years.

Here is an example of my writing style..

Muffins are MOST delicious... they SMELL lovely and they are DELICIOUS. I guess someone can let me know if this is going to cause a problem.

At_His_Feet Hello & welcome to CFS... It's great to have you join us.

Thanks for taking the time to read over the rules & topics. Your use of dots & capitals shouldn't be a problem. If you look through the threads, you'll see that others write that way also. It is my understanding that the rule is in place due to some people using all-caps in a manner that displays being rude, or what might be seen as "yelling", or posting an entire sentences, or the entire reply in all caps.

This is the first thing I READ after the rules and regulations... and it is BEAUTIFUL. It was posted by ADMIN. and I LOVE IT.

Courtesy is always a good idea.

The Golden Rule also applies.

Be aware that conversations are different when conducted only with typed words. There is no opportunity for the feedback provided by body language.

Everything we hear and read enters through our filter. This filter is built up as we experience life. And what the other person types passes through the filter and may not be received as the sender intended.

I know you believe you understood what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize what you heard is not what I meant.

Love above all.

AtomicSnowflake Thank you for replying to my question. I have never had anyone complain... so I don't think it should be a problem either.
I would prefer being told I am WONDERFUL over wonderful... LOL
Hi there At_His_Feet.
Whilst I realise your stronger in the faith than me( only been saved this year) i struggle with distraction.
I’m growing in the Lord and I am committed to Him like you and even though I don’t mind the capitalised word of the LORD I am prone to grow weak if capitalised words are used other than that

I’m looking at Romans 14:1, NLT: "Accept other believers who are weak in faith, and don't argue with them about what they think is right or wrong.

Once I have grown stable in the written way you enjoy your writing style I’m sure the Lord will see me through it and finish off what He begun so I can enjoy your way too.


hope you understand.

Hello Via,
How wonderful that you are a helper here, and you are just a babe. I hope you are encouraged by that role. I think I understand what you are saying to me... but let me repeat what I think you mean... so that we can be clear right off the bat.

I think you are asking me not to capitalize words for the sake of emphasis... Is that correct? That is going to be very difficult for me to do... because it's second nature... but the practice of looking for typos before posting will be good for me.

Thank you for being honest and letting me know this before it became an irritating problem for you. Communication really is the key.
Congratulations on your new adoption into the family of Christ.
Blessings to you. Tenderly, At_His_Feet

These thoughts & reminders are scattered throughout the forums... I have seen several that are lovely, and that caught my attention also. This one is one of my favorites to keep in mind.

You could have some fun with this.... there are several ways to emphasize a word or phrase other than using the caps...
for example:
*you could make certain words larger thank the surround text.
There is always the option to use bold... or to change the color, or to do both, or even combine all three.
There is the option to change the font style too.
And making use of the underline feature, and the italics gives even more options!

So, you do have the ability to get super creative with posts in more ways than simply hitting a caps key :)

I would also like to say thank you for being considerate of the rules, and especially the feelings of others concerning this. It is very much appreciated. And I hope the fellowship here will be a blessing to you.
Just give a yell if you need any help with anything here, or have any questions or problems.

Aww Thankyou for making your words smaller
Honestly it really triggers my demons and I’m not to used to dealing with them yet I really should have cried out to the Lord but I wasn’t expecting the devil to show up so fast... sneaky little blighter
