    Default Why can't I use all caps?

    I tried posting all caps for soemthing, and it didn't work. Is the forum automatically makign all caps into initial caps instead? This has happened twice, now. I used them for effect. Why can't I do this? As in -->

    W E. L O V E. I T! Only without the spaces. Not sure if that even worked.

    I have used all caps before....

    ETA: Ok, weird. That was all-caps and reverted to lower case. Maybe its a change in software? I know I've put various words in all caps....

    Ok, let's do some testing. Teh below will ahve various caps. Can't comment on the typos, I'm sure they're gonna stay, I rarely fix 'em.

    THIS IS ALL CAPS WITH NO PUNCTUATION IN BETWEEN.

    THIS. IS. ALL. CAPS. WITH. PERIODS.

    This sentence is not all caps, but STARTING NOW IT IS! And now it's not again.

    This is not all caps, but I'm gonna go with THIS and THIS for emphasis.

    Ok, let's see what we got.

    I'm telling you, I haven't had any crack in days! This is the post I'm referring to!

    You'll see that it all went down to initial caps, but I promise you, it was not typed in that way.
