You know that thing where people make fun of a terrible opinion by writing it in a mixture of upper and lower case? It's probably not a good idea.

Screenreader software used by blind or partially-sighted people interprets capital letters as the beginning of a word.

This means that a phrase written as "FiNe PEopLe oN BoTh siDeS" will sound like gibberish.

If accessibility matters to you, try to avoid doing this.

@feditips Could someone explain to me why someone would deliberately take the time to use capitalization like that ? I think it is generational, but maybe it is more of a subculture thing…


@mrak It's to make statements/replies 'sound' mocking in written form. If you've ever heard someone being mocked using a silly voice, that's what they're aiming for.
