That was odd. I did it because you said so. Submissive!
Normally though, if it weren't for seeing your name by it and me thinking it would likely be something interesting or humorous, i would have not clicked it.
READ THIS, is often used in forums like this by desperate people who want you to reply, like 'RePlY tO tHiS!' Usually teens who have that awful obsession with doing the aforementioned atrocity with letters.
Yes, so normally, whenever i see something in capitals say on this or any other related forum, my brain says; 'Nope, this is gonna be *bleep* because its a typical desperate someobody SHOUTING at me begging me to read, who already thinks/knows no one will reply because its probably drivel (how catty of me)'
The BOLD desperation just puts me off. If you're going to be desperate, do it with style! Seeing something that says 'PLEASE READ AND REPLY TO THIS< IT TOOK SO MUCH WORK/TIME/MEANS SO MUCH' Makes me tut and want to scream back EVERYONE IS HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM!!!
But then i think i must be quite an easily irked individual.
Capitals are sometimes ok, if they serve a purpose, if it fits with a poem/subject.
Is it MARK V SHELDON who always uses capitals? See that never offends me/puts me off/makes me think 'stop shouting!', because i like his words, and its just 'him'.
Oh hark at me, one rule for one and another for the others!
Titles that pull me in are rare.
BUT, when titles do draw you in, its great, an extra treat. Icebox's always stick in my mind. They remind me of chapters in story books.
But mostly, its an author that gets me, regardless of title.
I sometimes use/incorporate a theme of the poem, not always neccessarily a word or line from it. Sometimes a more hidden theme, sometimes an obvious one. Usually the latter due to my impatience and incompetence in subject line writing.
I'm rubbish at it though. So any old thing pulls me in, as i feel everyones pain. except, of course for the begging subject liners of course. Oh, and the cliche lines. I think i've done a fair few of those *cringe*
