    One I really hate is when PEOPLE POINTLESSLY USE CAPS LOCK TO MAKE A POINT OR ARE JUST TOO STUPID TO TYPE NORMALLY. *

    Usually found in single-drop reviews and food/service rants. My head's reading voice immediately turns into a hyperventilating Victor Meldrew-style rant accent.

    *(scurries off to check he hasn't done this himself years ago)
