Learn about Caps Lock Day

We’ve all seen it, that one moron who doesn’t seem to know how to turn off the Caps Lock button, or worse, people who deliberately do it somehow feeling it gets their point across better. In one particular case, there was even a person who felt that Caps Lock made their RESUME look more professional. What in the world are we to do with people like this? How about we just campaign to remove the Caps Lock Button?

History of Caps Lock Day

Caps Lock Day first came to pass in the year 2000, when Derek Arnold of Iowa decided that he, like so many other internet users, had simply had enough of people using all caps to emphasize themselves on the web. So he created Caps Lock Day in the interest of poking fun at people who use this abomination of a typing style, and to finally bring some sanity to the net.

There are some protocols that make it appropriate to post in all Caps, such as when posting as part of a weather monitoring network. In this rare and perhaps singular case, all caps are how you indicate that something is in fact of importance, and with its collection of acronyms and shorthand makes sure its clear.

How to Celebrate Caps Lock Day

The best way to Celebrate Caps Lock Day is quite simple, don’t use caps lock! Even better, remind your friends on social media, MMO’s, and every other medium you can imagine about the horrid habit that is using Caps Lock in communications.

You can also start an ironic campaign of using CAPS LOCK all day to make a more blatant statement about how this makes other people look. Send your memes, poke your friends, let them all know that it’s time to embrace proper grammar and stop looking like a complete half-wit.
