Authoring nested quotes might possibly be a gift of the Spirit, of which I have not been blessed.  I have admiration for those that labor at them, and hope that my avoidance of the art doesn't distract too much from my replies.

Even the smiley in Reply #47 is embarrassed as it turns red; Not using all caps was the first thing I learned about Internet Ettiquette ... back in 1994.

Just wanted to see if we had gotten anywhere on this topic...?  Is there any way we could make it optional?  Like putting something in the Profile section, where someone could just click on a button and you would turn it on or off?  would that work? 

p.s.  i'm a personal fan of caps lock!   ;D

No more from you.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
