I don`t understand why..

Post by W3ESE » Mon Jun 12, 2017 9:03 pm

A lot of folks posting advertisements don`t seem to proof-read their ads for proper grammar, mis-spelling, and worst of all, posting pictures that are sideways, and even upside down...Then top it off with posting in all CAPS.

There is a "4" station who posts every ad in all caps, with every picture either sideways, or upside down.

There, I said it..I feel better now. :roll:

I'm glad Amateur Radio is about technology not communications.

TOO many unreadable ads.

Maybe that's why automated digital modes are so popular.

Is there a restriction against publishing in all caps for the individual doing this?

All caps is the same as yelling at someone... Probably no restrictions, but it is such bad form that you will get chastised for doing so...
