Here is where the current arguments have been stated. The question is simple: which format do you prefer in a transcript?

STRONG BAD: Man, if I had a nickel for every email I get, I would throw them at people in the food court. From that railing, like up above.

I think it would look better if it was just bolded, not caps lock.

I prefer capitals. It makes it stand out even more clearly, and looks better.

Constant caps lock breaks a netiquette law.

SHOUTING IS THE WHOLE PAGE OR POST IN ALL CAPS.

But if I put something in caps to EMPHASIZE it, that's ok.

And I think that CAPITALIZING entire character names is a good idea.
