letters in capitals

when I capitalize WORDS IN POSTS SOMETIMES as I'm replying, when I submit the post I notice that at times they suddenly become lowercase, why is that? I just tried to type a in a post but it was changed to :d

Yeah, I've noticed that too. Probably an ANNOYANCE filter or something.

If over a certain percentage of a post or thread title is in caps, it gets converted to lowercase. Pretty standard feature for most forums.

I THINK ALL YOU NEED IS JUST ONE LETTER WHICH IS IN LOWER CASE TO MAKE SURE THE FILTER DOESNT APPLY HERE. LETS TRy

Yup. I was right. All you need is just one letter. But then remember writing in all caps is considered rude and shouting, so I`d try to avoid it if possible

Impossible. Show me the post. There will always be atleast one letter in lowercase or else the filter will kick in.
