    You know it's true.
    Let's start a revolution.
    Let's petition keyboard makers to Remove it !

    Is it that hard to hold the SHIFT key ?

    It is, when you are alone.

    If you have one hand, holding the shift key would probably be rather tedious and bothersome.

    Some programs here at work require everything to be entered in caps.

    Yeah, I spend large portions of my day with caps lock turned on.

    I enjoy my caps lock! I JUST DON'T LIKE READING THIS THE ENTIRE TIME.

    I do know a few people who have a disorder and typing in all caps helps them type better? I think they're dyslexic... It's rather annoying in general, but for people who have a disorder it's the only online method for them to efficiently type?

    I'm sure there's software out there for them.
    I could do without constant caps. I've seen add-ons that can prevent this (not here yet?).

    Because most databases are case sensitive and mixing case is a bad thing when inputting data.

    DING DING DING!

    A lot of work stations and software - especially older software platforms - require caps. I've run into it a lot and it sucks, but if you wanna work, you TYPE IN CAPS!

    Not to mention trying to find a customer's record when a clueless temp put in all the data in lower case. >.<

    Those are some old databases.

    I'd Rather See All Caps Than Typing Like This Though.

    I produce engineer drawings at work and everything is entered in caps so its easier to read and distinguish the words.

    Ask the COBOL programmers how they would feel if they had to hold down the shift key all day.

    I think of each specific key on the keyboard as a country. Caps lock being N Korea, we all know what should happen there and what necessary precautions need to be taken...
