Why can't we comment in all CAPS?

Don't tell me to go to that crappy terms and conditions thing because it DOESN'T WORK. If going to the terms and conditions is your only option, don't answer my question!

It IS thought of as yelling... anyone who has ever chatted knows that. Plus, it's annoying. It's Nearly As Annoying As Those People Who Feel Compelled To Capitalize Every Word In Their Answers As If What They Are Saying Is Of Huge Importance. You can get your point across without driving other users batty.

Great answer FarmerGirlMaryJo and that is the reason, it is considered rude and yelling to type in all caps so the system was built to not allow it. :)

There also is a reading comprehension study which suggests using upper/lower case letters actually improves comprehension. ALL CAPS make people slow down to concentrate in the word not the content.
