Four months have passed since Scott and Tara, John and Cherie, and Nic and Amanda moved out of The Dr. Phil House, armed with tools to save their crumbling marriages. One couple has curbed their fighting but now reveals an issue that the wife says is tearing them apart. Why did they keep it a secret from Dr. Phil? Then, a couple learning to work together sees the changes in their children but still struggles with issues from the past. Plus, a reinvigorated pair say they’re best friends again and falling back in love. Which marriages are thriving, and which one is hanging on by a thread? Talk about the show here.

Find out what happened on the show.

All caps is really hard to read, I am saying this in a friendly way, but in internet land it is considered yelling besides the fact that it makes it very very hard to read.

SORRY, this is definetely new to me, I do not correspond on the internet very often.  Why is it hard to read? Now I know why when I use caps people respond like I may have offended them, WHOOPS, IN A FRIENDLY WAY

:o)

I am not sure why it's considered yelling, but I've been chatting for over a decade now and that's how it's always been, actually, as funny as it might seem, when I read words in all caps I "hear" yelling in my head. (I'm one of those readers who hears the words in her head as she reads.)

I do have a hard time reading it, probably only because I'm not used to it.

The system of upper and lower case letters serve as visual cues for us. We read faster and more efficiently when we are guided by these cues (along with punctuation, paragraphs, etc.)

 

I think the YELLING is an Internet protocol, although we use all caps for emphasis. So if you are emphasizing every word, it is like yelling.

I never thought about it like that, but yes, I guess that is the point of punctuation, upper and lowercase letters....visual cues to make communication easier. Thanks Julie...you teacher you! LOL

I'm the same way about "hearing" the words in my head.

Actually I was totally computer illiterate until just before Christmas last year. I felt like EVERYONE but me knew how to use a computer. So I got hooked up and the rest is history. I feel like capital letters are yelling too. Or,like above ,when I want to emphasize a certain word. Previously, a guest on the show posted after she had been on the show with a question about how to get out of her situation. I posted to her in caps because I felt like I wanted to YELL at her. She was asking how to get out of her situation and I said TAKE YOUR CHILDREN BY THE HAND AND WALK OUT THE DOOR! I felt like I was yelling.
