Because, sadly, no one has yet stepped up, it seems it falls to me *AHEM* SOMETHING ABOUT SOME SALMON AND TOAST/ SOMETHING ABOUT A CROCKETY BLOAT/ SOMETHING ABOUT A DRUNK ON THE DOCK/ HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME TURN ON YOUR CAPS LOCK

Capslock day is a tradition on metafilter that use to be a riot of gifs, images and random absurdity that forced me to once again rejoin.
It will never be what it was, but much like a minor wheel of fortune, the measure of what you get out of it is what you put into it.

HAPPY CAPSLOCK EVERYBODY
BELLOW YOUR TEXTED HEADS OFF

As we of the internet know, all caps is the equivalent of shouting, yelling, or some level of emphasis that denotes a level of distress.

I USUALLY USE IT TODAY TO JUST TALK ABOUT MY DAY, PER USUAL, BUT, BOY, HAS THERE BEEN A LOT STUFF GOING ON.
RIGHT NOW I'D RATHER TALK ABOUT MY CAT'S UPCOMING Quinceañera IN THE SPRING SINCE COVID RUINED HER BAT MITZVAH.

ONCE UPON A TIME MY GIRLFRIEND AN I WERE SITTING ON THE BACK PORCH A BIT DRUNK. THERE WAS A Quinceañera GOING ON NEXT DOOR SO WE JUMPED THE FENCE AND JOINED IN FOR A GOOD TEN MINUTES. iT WAS ALL NICE AND FUN AND ALL THAT. THEN WE HOPPED THE FENCE BACK AND WENT INSIDE AND ******. HAPPY Quinceañera TO YOUR CAT, I'LL DANCE A BIT.

WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF WE LOCKED OUR CAPS
AND MADE OUR LETTERS STARTLINGLY LARGE
OUR KEYS WOULD STILL GO TAPPETY-TAP
OUR BOLDEST IDEAS WOULD LEAD THE CHARGE

BUT MAYBE NOBODY WOULD APPRECIATE THEM BECAUSE THEY WERE ALMOST UNREADABLE

THIS PLACE IS A MESSAGE… AND PART OF A SYSTEM OF MESSAGES… PAY ATTENTION TO IT! SENDING THIS MESSAGE WAS IMPORTANT TO US. WE CONSIDERED OURSELVES TO BE A POWERFUL CULTURE.

THIS PLACE IS NOT A PLACE OF HONOR…NO HIGHLY ESTEEMED DEED IS COMMEMORATED HERE… NOTHING VALUED IS HERE.

WHAT IS HERE IS DANGEROUS AND REPULSIVE TO US. THIS MESSAGE IS A WARNING ABOUT CAPS LOCK.

THE CAPS LOCK IS IN A PARTICULAR LOCATION… IT INCREASES TOWARD A CENTER… THE CENTER OF CAPS LOCK IS HERE… OF A PARTICULAR SIZE AND SHAPE, AND BELOW US.

THE CAPS LOCK IS STILL PRESENT, IN YOUR TIME, AS IT WAS IN OURS.

THE CAPS LOCK IS TO THE BODY, AND IT CAN KILL.

THE FORM OF THE CAPS LOCK IS AN EMANATION OF ENERGY.

THE CAPS LOCK IS UNLEASHED ONLY IF YOU SUBSTANTIALLY DISTURB THIS PLACE PHYSICALLY. THIS PLACE IS BEST SHUNNED AND LEFT UNINHABITED.
