Well, if in reality you are less than a complete nutcase, job done.

It's childish and annoying.

He hopes to emphasis what he is saying, but it just makes he look like a jerk.

On ILP it is a reportable offence.

I would not mind so much if he did it for one or two words in a long post, but the number of times he used it is silly.
Swear words fail to have impact when over used. This is similar

Save yourself the risk. I was so annoyed I put him on ignore.

If Age must remain preoccupied with posting style and is unable to improve his content, I would offer a couple tips.

Obviously the caps lock has to stop. A confident forum sophist rarely uses caps lock like that, because he doesn't need to shout. Instead, Age needs to learn when and where to italicize words, use semicolons; and the occasional 'scare' quotes. These three devices, when used properly, can devastate a reader and leave them disarmed and frozen in their desk seat. It duddint really even matter what is said. One could say the most retarded shit, and if the form is right, it'll look like something straight out of the classics, something only a boss would write.
