Default is caps not allowed?

IT'S A FEATURE TO PREVENT SHOUTING LIKE THIS, WHICH IS REALLY RATHER ANNOYING.

i GUESS IT'S OK TO DISABLE ...

there are legitimate uses of all caps like in abbreviations.

i would strongly suggest disabling this automatic (and forced) conversion to lowercase.

That's not haw it works (worked), it checks if the first x characters are capitalized, if they are, it will start converting to lowercase.

SO YOU CAN STILL USE ALL CAPS, JUST NOT AT THE START OF THE POST OR THREAD TITLE.

But as I said, I disabled it.
