While I understand that netiquette rules may have slight variations, e.g.
https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc1855 doesn't have any kind of distinction
between using capital letters for single words or whole sentences and
suggests different approach for emphasizing. My 26 old experience suggests
the same. In any case, any potential responses to this message should be
sent to fpc-other (or me personally) rather than to this list, because
this topic is not on topic here.
