Anita, Sorry about your eyes. I have tried several different approaches and styles to my writing. I too have had vision problems so I sympathize about that. I had surgery on both of mine. Sometimes I type in all caps too because the font on my computer is small and hard for me to read and therefore I miss many typos, even though I do proof read everything I type before posting or sending. People have told me (just saying) and (just a tip) before. Also constructive criticism and advice. I don't mean any offense or rudeness. I have even been told that typing in all caps is equated to screaming and yelling and is rude, which I have never considered it to be. Bold and block type in all caps is easier for me to see and read on my computer as well. As far as I am concerned keyboards lack many features and special keys that should be there and are not. I must wear reading glasses when on my computer, so I understand the problems for some other peoples eyes. AuntBee has had some eye problems as well. I don't paragraph because I ramble too often. It also wastes too much space on the windows on my computer and quickly fills a window and scrolls out of the top and then I can't see how long my post or message is after that. I also have a problem with email space. You can please some of the people all of the time, all of the people some of the time, but you can never please all of the people all of the time. So, I'm dammed if I do and I'm dammed if I don't. I choose to please myself and to Hell with it. (just saying) No offense intended and I hope none is taken. Lifelong is a Native Montanan who has been to Yellowstone Park dozens of times since birth and probably knows more about Yellowstone Park than any other Member on this website, and has studied earth geology since age 12, especially PLATE TECTONICS and Mineralogy. Lifelong has been employed in several occupations directly related to earth sciences. Have you catfeet? Also for everyone who reads my replies and posts: I know you are trying to be helpful, and the gesture is appreciated, but wasted on me, because I do not open attachments, click on links that have been sent to me, or watch videos sent either, unless they are from a very highly trusted person I know. I follow the advice that my computer security company gives me and I have very few computer problems as a result. I spend on average more than 8 hours on my computer almost every single day, sometimes 10 to 14. When ever I don't have something more important to do. I do not worry about any SHTF or event. Worrying is detrimental, a total waste of time, a negative, and damages the psyche and eats away at mental health and well being, and can also cause unnecessary stress. I just Prep and hope for the best and pray and count my Blessings daily. Mood has everything to do with everything in my life. I am watchful and cautious. the west coast volcanoes pose a greater potential threat in my life time so I just am mindful of that. OP, I hope you did not shoot the Duck! :rofl: :D P.S. I do not bang my head on walls or touch hot stoves. ... :-) Lifelong

I don't have eye problems, except that I'm near-sighted, and wear glasses. I am a writer/editor and I'm staring at type all the time. You can make your writing much easier to read by simply separating it into paragraphs. I don't care if it is on the computer or on a piece of paper, it is more difficult to read when it's a dense paragraph. As it is, I usually get in about 3 lines and give up because it isn't worth the aggravation. And USING CAPS DOESN"T HELP!! It is annoying.

Those aren't three lines filled with solid type.

THIS is three solid lines of type:(taken from LS's post above)

People have told me (just saying) and (just a tip) before. Also constructive criticism and advice. I don't mean any offense or rudeness. I have even been told that typing in all caps is equated to screaming and yelling and is rude, which I have never considered it to be.

(Edited to add--when I cut and past it's 3 lines, but when it comes out in the finished message, it's about 3 1/2)

Reb - ITA, tmi!

Anita, I agree, some paragraphs would be nice. I don't mean to be rude, but I tend to skip LS's posts because I can't read 'em in one big blurb like that. If it ain't in the first couple of sentences, I don't read it - I've an astigmatism to beat the band.

Just put 2 spaces between each line that will also help it not to run together.
