#256 | Sally Gellert | Do Not Use ALL CAPS

Submission 256

Central Unitarian Church (Paramus, NJ) 6014

What is your suggestion or idea?

Please do not use ALL CAPS—which is shouting in text—for emphasis.

What is the reason for your amendment idea?

Professionally-typeset documents use Italics or Bold, even Bold Italics, for emphasis. ALL CAPS, unless someone is dictating through a screen reader, is considered shouting and rude.

Have you discussed this idea with your congregation or other UUs?

mentioned on an e-mail discussion list; seeming agreement, definitely no objections

Sally, could you specify where you see all caps. I looked and didn’t see all caps anywhere in the text of the proposed Article II, just the word Love in the graphic.
