If you think that (wanting) politeness is a sign of oppression,
But I never said that. Indeed, what I did say is almost identical to what you've quoted from Wikipedia. Vis. From the very post to which you responded.
I never use all caps. Not in respect of that illogical usenet meme, but because I find it hard to read, and it looses its impact.
I do occasionally use a few words in caps for emphasis. A practice wildly used in literature, media and correspondence, through out all languages and cultures.
I was not wrong to put 6 words in caps. Those judging me were wrong to equate that use with the usenet 'all caps is shouting' meme.
(And IMO for subscribing to that illogical meme in the first place; but that's subjective.)
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
