1. CHECK YOUR CAPS LOCK

1.1. Caps Lock is the button on your keyboard which types all the letters in capital letters. Typing in capital letters online implies that you are YELLING!

3.1.2. When people talk to each other and are listening to each others voices, it is easier to hear the tone the person is speaking in. But when a person is reading a text it is much more tricky and difficult. it is important to try to get across a clear message, just the way you want it by placing commas, periods, exclamations marks and question marks in the right place. Proofreading is a very important task to do before sending EVERY message! :)
