IT IS CONSIDERED RUDE AS IT TELLS PEOPLE YOU ARE ANGRY AND SHOUTING! DO IT ALL THE TIME AND IT WILL GET DELETED.
Dont just post in massive text size:
It is annoying to read a whole message posted in big fonts
Far better to emphasis a word when it is needed - it stands out more. Contrary to some belief:, messages that appear in big fonts all the time actually get read less and are paid less attention than to a message formatted and presented properly.
Do use smileys:
Especially when having fun or being sarcastic. Unlike a face-to-face conversation, emotions and facial expressions can not be read in words so it is important to let someone know the mood in which you write something. Got that, silly-billys? If you jest with people without an emotion smiley it can be construed the wrong way and lead to arguments and bad feeling.
