1.1.2 No All Caps: It is proper netiquette to refrain from using all capital letters in internet correspondence. Top
I was taught to stay away from people who are loud. It often times means they are bad people. Everyone avoids loud people. Using all caps is being loud on the internet. Users who use all caps are avoided. This is a universal rule of netiquette.
The attention that a person gets from using all caps is not positive attention. It is negative attention. People that use the internet regularly are put off by all caps. People who do not know any better, newbies, may be attracted to it. Top
Using all capital letters in electronic communication is like shouting at someone in person. It is a common technique used by HUSTLERS to get attention.
In reality, shouting at someone is done to get their attention through intimidation. Shouting breaks the standard level of volume and tone, a voice should carry, to force someone into doing something. This is not socially acceptable in a civilized society because it is a use of force not reason.
Shouting at people is unreasonable in most cases. It raises the case that standard text should carry to bully a reader. This is not acceptable in a civilized cybersphere.
It does not matter what form of internet communication you are using, shouting is not acceptable. There are caveats and exceptions. Subject lines, headings, and advertisements are often in all capital letters for readability reasons.
No one likes to be yelled at, but every once in a while you have to shout at someone to get their attention. Therefore, using all caps is bad netiquette because it's shouting, but is acceptable for certain reasons.
It is acceptable for website heading to be in all caps, but not personal messages. All Caps is popular on classified advertising and auction websites because it is a good way to make your ad stand out. I do not recommend responding to ads with all caps. Top

Answer: No, the rules of netiquette on this site are not designed to be legally binding in any way, shape, form, or fashion. Netiquette is social not legal. It is good netiquette to follow the law.
Furthermore, many legal jurisdictions have laws that overlap the rules of netiquette contained in this site. However, I have not consulted any law making bodies or lawyers about the rules of netiquette contained in this site.

Answer: Spell check and proofread your messages because grammar errors diminish the credibility of the message. Spell check messages with a software program and proofread messages by rereading them before sending them through or uploading them to, the internet.
Using a spell check program is not complicated, it's good netiquette. Spell checking a message before you send it into cyberspace (internet) is good netiquette because everyone makes spelling and grammar mistakes. All humans make mistakes when they are composing documents. Making mistakes is natural. The purpose of spell check software programs is to check your spelling.
Using a spell check program is the first step in the proofreading process because it is an automated step that can be done before you read the message for clarity and double check for quality. Reading a message for clarity is required because spell check programs only identify misspelled words, not misued ones. Double checking for quality means asking yourself if your intended audience will appreciate the message. Top
