#UPDATE: January 6, 2021:
To all of you who are sending me video clips this morning and asking "Is this your family?"...


To answer your questions...


* Yes... my relatives ARE on every news station in every country of the world today, yes they did ORGANIZE the attack on the Capitol Building... and I am horrified by it.


* No, before you guys sent me the video footage clips, I was unaware the attack had happened, I do not own a TV and do not seek out news reports on the internet, so had you not sent me those clips I would never have known the attack had happened at all


* Yes, many members of my extended-family were involved in organizing the attack on Washington D.C.; one of my aunts claims to be the organizer, she is now wanted by the FBI for questioning


* Yes, I can see 1 uncle, 2 aunts, and 23 1st cousins in those pictures and news reports.


* Yes, the shooter is the high priest cousin you saw posting gun photos and death threats on my FaceBook, Twitter, and Twitch chat


* Yes, that is the 2 cousins who founded the group "The Loyalist White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan More Loyal Than The Loyal White Knights", in the gif/memes trashing reporter cameras and jumping on said cameras 


* YES, that IS the uncle who was paying the Discord tittie streamer $500 a month to stage the "deserve to be raped raids" on my Twitch channel 


* Yes, that uncle, 2 aunts, and 23 cousins ARE all members of Heaven's Gate and were party to the original UFO cult kool-aid murder suicide that killed 39 people in 1997


* No, I do not support anything they do or have done; it's been more than 30 years since I last saw, talked to, or interacted with any of them


#And please, stop forwarding video footage and news reports to me. I want nothing to do with those jackasses. We share DNA, not ideologies. They absolutely disgust me.


* If you were there, please be aware that 4 of them are now bragging on their social medias that they currently have Covid-19 and that they were spitting on police and government officials during the attack on the Capitol Building; yes it is confirmed they DO actually have Covid-19... 9 members of their immediate family have died in the past month and is what instigated them to join the mob at D.C.


* Yes, all of them are wanted by the FBI... if you have any information about ANY of their crimes INCLUDING today's attack on Washington D.C., do NOT send it to me, send it to the FBI agent in charge of the case: 


#FBI Agent Andy Drewer out of the Portland, Maine FBI office is in charge of the investigation. If you have information about the case, give it to him not me. He can be reached @ +1-(207)-774-9322


This whole thing is very distressing for me. I do not like the kind of attention that gets put on ME because I happen to be related to THEM.

Far too many people harass my family, online and offline, because of these dipshits in our rather distant family tree.

I prefer to stay out of the public eye and deeply dislike being pulled into the paparazzi spotlight every time this group of lunatics pulls one of these ridiculous terrorist attack stunts.


It was very distressing for me to wake up this morning to find email, and every contact method on every social media, packs full of thousands of questions, links, and forwards, all asking me if that was my family that was being plastered across every news station on the planet.


It was bad enough to learn a terrorist attack had happened and it was even worse to learn it was yet again my uncles behind it.


Though I can not say I'm surprised to learn these jackass dipshits I have to share DNA with were involved. This certainly isn't the first terrorist attack they took part in.


Considering this 1 uncle, 2 aunts, & 23 cousins, all who took part in Heaven's Gate murder of 39 people in 1997, 1 of whom built the bomb for 2013's Boston Marathon, and 2 of whom founded the Loyalist White Knights... were involved in this attack too... I hope they get life in prison, they fucking deserve it.

.......

#UPDATE: January 9, 2020....


Good news, one of them was just arrested in Florida. He's the guy all over Twitter today, waving to security cameras while stealing Nancy Pelosi's lecture pedestal. My relatives are insane. I hope he never gets out.


At least he can't post death threats and rape threats in my Twitch chat anymore. I hope they arrest them all.


Why do I have to share DNA with these psychotic lunatics?


You can support your political party without being a violent, crazed, psychopathic terroist, you know.


#And random thought...


You know... all the people saying Trump supporters should stop inciting violence and go read their Bible, clearly have never read the Bible and have no clue how much violence and genocide God commands in the Old Testament... shouldn't it be the Trumpies need LESS Bible influence? Isn't it the Bible that inspired them to be violent in the first place?


And you want to know something else...


26 of those people now arrested for attacking the Capitol, had ALREADY been reported, in October 2019, for planning an attack on the government...

I know beause I filed that report on 3 uncles, 2 auns, and 23 cousins when they started building bombs and bought 4,000 asult rifles, while claiming they were building an army.

This attack was a long time in the planning and couldhave been prevented and the FBI knew about it 2 years ago.


But hey... guess what... the FBI knew about the Heaven's Gate murder 8 MONTHS before those same 26 people murdered 39 people under the shadow of Hale-Bop... AND the FBI knew in 2012, 5 months ahead of time that these same 26 people were building bombs for the Boston Marathon.


Same 26 people over and over again. This time some of them actually got caught... but the Heaven's Gate crew, has 4,000 members in Maine, Florida, Mississippi, Wyomin, Colorado, and Nova Scotia.


They are gaining members all the time. They claim they are building God's army, they claim Trump is "the God-King" God's form on earth, they also believe he is a shapeshifting reptilian alien, and they claim to be waiting for a mothership that will fly in the shadow of Comet Wormwood.


They claim "when the Trump of jubilie sounds" they will be ready to kill all who oppose them, because they believe they are God's Army and they do not fear death, for they also believe that through death, they "will be changed in the twinkling of an eye" and transformed into mighty arch angels to enact vengange of all who oppose them.


They embrace death, to the point, like they did in 1997, they will kill themselves if they have to, and take everyone around them with them.


Heaven's Gate should be feared and they should be in prison, not building gallows on the front law of the Capitaol building while trying to hang the Vice President.


How many decades will Heaven's Gate's members be allowed to kill and main unbridled? They are terrorists and NEED to be arrested and put in prison, BEFORE they do what they are planning and unleash a bomb that will kill every one "East of the Mississippi" as they put it.


My uncle David is dangerous, and now with his brother Bruce, leader of Heaven's Gate since 1997, dead from Covid19, David's crew has become far more dangerous than they ever were.


This attack they staged on the Capitol, it's not the end, it was just them firing a warning shot of something far bigger yet to come.


They need to be stopped BEFORE they kill more people.


How many times will this same group be allowed to kill over and over again, before someone stops them?


.......


1 uncle, 2 aunts, & 23 cousins were there; they are the leaders of Heaven's Gate AND the Loyalist White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan; they have 4,000 members armed with assault rifles, ready to march on command, and that's JUST the group in Palmyra, Maine - they NEED to be stopped... this post they made on Twitter is NOT a joke... they WILL march Jan 19... they MUST be stopped... Jan 6 was just a warning shot

UPDATE: January 14, 2021
I received a deeply troubling question today... let's answer it...

I received a deeply troubling question today... let's answer it...


................


*if someone asks me to do something in exchange for a donation...? I stream, and today someone I've never seen before sent me a message on discord asking me if I want [insert ridiculous amount of money here]. I of course replied asking what for, and the guy replies saying 'complete 25 challenges, for example #1 would be pulling a funny face. If you complete all 25 challenges then I donate the money.' Oh, and he also sent me screenshots of what I assume is supposed to be proof that he's dono'd tons of money to others before. This seems sus AF to me. Should I just assume it's fake / he'll ask me to do something weird? What do?*


................


You've heard of the recent attacks on the American Capitol, right?

Have you NOT also heard about the 26 Twitch streamers who have found their name's on the FBI's no fly list even though they live in Europe and have never been to America?

Have you looked at today's day January 14 vs the date of the next 2 planned attacks, January 17 and January 20?

I doubt you'd ask this question if you HAD heard of what happened, so let me me summarize:

A group of terrorists spent several months planning an attack on Washington D.C. They took to intermingling with election rallies, so no one would suspect them. 

Meanwhile, online, they sought out a way to make 26 fake IDs for their group to use on attack day (January 6).

They ended up contacting 26 Twitch streamers the genders and approximate ages of the 26 people they had in their group going to D.C. 

Each streamer was sent an offer for being donated $500 in exchange for doing things. The streamers thought it seemed innocent enough and was easy money, so did it.

The reason for the $500 amount, was PayPal requires additional verification on large amounts, meaning, they were given the REAL NAMES AND HOME ADDRESSES of those 26 streamers. They next took those names and made 26 fake IDs using the names and addresses of those 26 streamers.

They used those fake IDs January 6 at D.C. and now as of Jan 7, those 26 streamers found their names on the FBI's no-fly list.

Those 26 terrorists, tossed the fake IDs and used their real IDs to leave D.C. and made their way back to Florida, Mississippi, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine, successfully returning home, while hundreds of other rally attendants found themselves unable to get on planes.

Given what those 26 did just before Jan 6, I would question anyone asking something similar to any streamer, right now, this close to Jan 17.

I highly recommend you report them to the FBI as possibly connected to the Jan 17 attack. **[https://tips.fbi.gov/](https://tips.fbi.gov/)**

The 26 people in question by the way... my uncle David, his wife Luci, his sister Barbie Jean, and 23 of their children, grandchildren, and great grand children... only one of whom so far has been arrested... the one who stole Nancy Pelosi's pulpit. On their way home to Palmyra, the rest showed up in my driveway January 11, to chant "All hail God King Trump" while bragging how they didn't get caught and outwitted the FBI and are going back to D.C. on Jan 17 and Jan 20.

Chances are VERY HIGH that the man contacting you was David's son Shem, who is the one who contacted the others prior to the Jan 6 attack, or so he bragged on Jan 11, while shooting off his rifils in my driveway, from a red 1980s vintage Jeep Cherokee.

Beware of the Atwaters, the Halls, the Cyrs, and the Johnsons... they ain't sending you money unless they are planning on using you to take the fall for some crime they plan to commit and blame on you. You'll go to jail and they'll walk free, like they always do, like they've been doing since the 1950s.

..UPDATE: January 14, 2021...
..............................
...MODS TAKE NOTICE!...
.................................
...NEW BAN RULES ADDED TO THE CHANNEL... ..............................
...From today forward ALL USERNAMES ending in "Chan" are to be banned on sight...
..............................
...I do not want any member of the 4Chan, 7Chan, Anon, QAnon or any similar terrorist organizations near my channel...
.............................. 
...BAN THEM ALL!...

#As of this discovery a new policy is now in place on my channel.. all mods are to **IMMEDIATELY BAN** anyone and everyone they see with the word "Chan" at the end of their name, wither that user has ever visited my channel or not.

I want my mods to take ANY user they see on ANY channel ANYWHERE on Twitch to just ban those usernames from my channel as soon as they see them.

#From today forwards ALL USERNAMES ending in "Chan" are to be banned on sight.

#I do not want any member of this terrorist organization near my channel.

#The Chans are horrible people and I want nothing to do with any of them.

#Anyone found to be a supporter of ANY Chan is to be banned from my channel, even if they do not have "Chan" at the end of their username.

The "Chan" movement... OMG! They are fucking psychotic extremists. I had no clue what "Chan" meant or why people put it at the end of their username. Knowing what I know now and looking at the fact that the ringleader behind the 3 year long attack on my Twitch channel has the word "Chan" at the end of her username, the wild sex rumors she spreads about me FINALLY make sense.

Today one of my mods sent me the following message:

*"I noticed the girl trying to cancel you has "Chan" at the end of her username, as do many of her followers. I also noticed your confusion over her attacks and I wonder, do you know what "chan" means or why streamers put it at the end of their username? Everyone who has "Chan" at the end of their username is a witch hunting channel, it is how they identify themselves. It means they are extremist radical trolls from 4chan. There is even a wiki devoted to the "Chan Movement". Here, you'll want to read this. **[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4chan](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4chan)** and this **[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Chanology](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Chanology)**Twitter has started to ban anyone using "chan" at the end of their username because is identifies the user as connected with white supremacy hate groups. She's a QAnon terrorist and proud of it, that's why she has "chan" at the end of her name. That's why she is working with your uncles. She helped them plan the attack on the Capitol. She's a QAnon member. That's why she has the word "chan" at the end of her username. Every QAnon member does that. I didn't realize you had never heard of QAnon or 4Chan until I saw your Tweet last night. I'm s sorry. I thought you knew that is what she was. I would have messaged you sooner about this if I had known you didn't know what QAnon was. Also "Thingy" is a slang word, it means "a child's vagina" people put that in their username to signify they are supporters of child rape. These are really bad people attacking your channel. They are the same people who just attacked America's Capital. When they are chanting "ThingyChan" in your chat, it's a QAnon secret code word, it's another word for rape, it's a rape threat, it's them bypassing the NightBot ban of the word rape. It means they are threatening to gather up 4Chan members to rape you. 4Chan QAnon's use secret code words to bypass chat bans because they know most people don't know what the code words mean. It's like a Morse Code that only they know."*


Here is what the Wiki has to say:

>>>>*"4chan is an anonymous English-language imageboard website. Launched by Christopher "moot" Poole in October 2003, the site hosts boards dedicated to a wide variety of topics, from anime and manga to video games, music, literature, fitness, politics, and sports, among others. Registration is not available and users typically post anonymously; posting is ephemeral, as threads receiving recent replies are "bumped" to the top of their respective board and old threads are deleted as new ones are created. As of November 2020, 4chan receives more than 20 million unique monthly visitors, with more than 900,000 posts made daily."*

.

.

>>>>*"The site has been described as a hub of Internet subculture, with its community being influential in the formation of prominent Internet memes, such as lolcats, Rickrolling, and rage comics, as well as hacktivist and political movements, such as Anonymous and the alt-right. 4chan has often been the subject of media attention as a source of controversies, including the coordination of pranks and harassment against websites and Internet users, and the posting of illegal and offensive content. The Guardian once summarized the 4chan community as "lunatic, juvenile ... brilliant, ridiculous and alarming""*

.

.

>>>>*"Before the end of 2003, several new anime-related boards were added, including /h/ (Hentai), /c/ (Anime/Cute), /d/ (Hentai/Alternative), /w/ (Wallpapers/Anime), /y/ (Yaoi), and /a/ (Anime). Additionally, a lolicon board was created at /l/ (Lolikon),[26] but was disabled following the posting of genuine child pornography and ultimately deleted in October 2004, after threats of legal action."*

.

.

>>>>*"On November 17, 2018, it was announced that the site would be split into two, with the work-safe boards moved to a new domain, 4channel.org, while the NSFW boards would remain on the 4chan.org domain. In a series of posts on the topic, Nishimura explained that the split was due to 4chan being blacklisted by most advertising companies, and that the new 4channel domain would allow for the site to receive advertisements by mainstream ad providers."*

.

.

>>>>*"/pol/ ("Politically Incorrect") is 4chan's political discussion board. A stickied thread on its front page states that the board's intended purpose is "discussion of news, world events, political issues, and other related topics." /pol/ was created in October 2011 as a rebranding of 4chan's news board, /new/, which was deleted that January for a high volume of racist discussion."*

.

.

>>>>*"Although there had previously been a strong left-libertarian contingent to 4chan activists, there was a gradual rightward turn on 4chan's politics board in the early-mid 2010s. The board quickly attracted posters with a political persuasion that later would be described with a new term, the alt-right. Media sources have characterized /pol/ as predominantly racist and sexist, with many of its posts taking an explicitly neo-Nazi bent. The Southern Poverty Law Center regards /pol/'s rhetorical style as widely emulated by white supremacist websites such as The Daily Stormer; the Stormer's editor, Andrew Anglin, concurred. /pol/ was where screenshots of Trayvon Martin's hacked social media accounts were initially posted. The board's users have started antifeminist, homophobic, transphobic, and anti-Arab Twitter campaigns."*

.

.

>>>>*"The users of /r9k/ built upon by then popular 4chan memes "epic win" and "fail" to group the human population into "alphas" or stereotypical well-adjusted popular people and "betas" or stereotypical geek-ish social rejects, self-identifying with the latter. It became a popular gathering place for the controversial online incel community. The "beta uprising" or "beta rebellion" meme, the idea of taking revenge against women, jocks and others perceived as the cause of incels' problems, was popularized on the sub-section. It gained more traction on the forum following the Umpqua Community College shooting, where it is believed that the shooter, Chris Harper-Mercer, also warned people not to go to school in the Northwest hours prior to the shooting as users encouraged him. The perpetrator of the Toronto van attack referenced 4chan and an incel rebellion in a Facebook post he made prior to the attack while praising self-identified incel Elliot Rodger, the killer behind the 2014 Isla Vista killings. He claims to have talked with both Harper-Mercer and Rodger on Reddit and 4chan and believes that he was part of a "beta uprising", also posting a message on 4chan about his intention the day before his attack."*

.

.

>>>>*"Anonymous originated in 2003 on the imageboard 4chan representing the concept of many online and offline community users simultaneously existing as an anarchic, digitized global brain. Anonymous members (known as Anons or QAnons) can be distinguished in public by the wearing of Guy Fawkes masks in the style portrayed in the graphic novel and film V for Vendetta. However, this may not always be the case as some of the collective prefer to instead cover their face without using the well-known mask as a disguise. Some anons also opt to mask their voices through voice changers or text-to-speech programs."*

.

.

>>>>*"On January 19, 2012, the U.S. Department of Justice shut down the file-sharing site Megaupload on allegations of copyright infringement. Anons responded with a wave of DDoS attacks on U.S. government and copyright organizations, shutting down the sites for the RIAA, MPAA, Broadcast Music, Inc., and the FBI."*

.

.

>>>>*"In the wake of the fatal police shooting of unarmed African-American Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, "Operation Ferguson"—a hacktivist organization that claimed to be associated with Anonymous—organized cyberprotests against police, setting up a website and a Twitter account to do so. The group promised that if any protesters were harassed or harmed, they would attack the city's servers and computers, taking them offline. City officials said that e-mail systems were targeted and phones died, while the Internet crashed at the City Hall."*

.

.

>>>>*"In March 2016, Anonymous was reported to have declared war on Donald Trump. However, the "Anonymous Official" YouTube channel released a video denouncing #OpTrump as an operation that "goes against everything Anonymous stands for" in reference to censorship and added "we are for everyone letting their voices be heard, even, if the person at hand ... is a monster.""*

.

.

>>>>*"In late 2017, QAnon, a pro-Trump group claiming to be the "real" Anonymous, first emerged on 4chan. In response, anti-Trump members of Anonymous warned that QAnon was stealing the collective's branding."*

.

.

>>>>*"Since 2009, dozens of people have been arrested for involvement in Anonymous cyberattacks, in countries including the U.S., UK, Australia, the Netherlands, Spain, and Turkey. Anons generally protest these prosecutions and describe these individuals as martyrs to the movement. The July 2011 arrest of LulzSec member Topiary became a particular rallying point, leading to a widespread "Free Topiary" movement."*

.

.

>>>>*"QAnon is a disproven and discredited far-right conspiracy theory alleging that a cabal of Satan-worshipping cannibalistic pedophiles is running a global child sex-trafficking ring and plotting against U.S. president Donald Trump, who is fighting the cabal. QAnon also commonly asserts that Trump is planning a day of reckoning known as the "Storm", when thousands of members of the cabal will be arrested. The conspiracy claim is entirely fictitious. QAnon supporters have accused many liberal Hollywood actors, Democratic politicians, and high-ranking government officials of being members of the cabal. They have also claimed that Trump feigned conspiracy with Russians to enlist Robert Mueller to join him in exposing the sex trafficking ring and preventing a coup d'état by Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and George Soros. The QAnon conspiracy theories have been amplified by Russian state-backed troll accounts on social media, as well as Russian state-backed traditional media."*

.

.

>>>>*"Although preceded by similar viral conspiracy theories such as Pizzagate,[23][24] which has since become part of QAnon, the conspiracy theory began with an October 2017 post on the anonymous imageboard 4chan by "Q", who was presumably an American individual;[25] it is now more likely that "Q" has become a group of people acting under the same name. A stylometric analysis of Q posts claims to have uncovered that at least two people wrote as "Q" in different periods. Q claimed to be a high-level government official with Q clearance, who has access to classified information involving the Trump administration and its opponents in the United States. NBC News reported that three people took the original Q post and spread it across multiple media platforms to build an Internet following for profit. QAnon was preceded by several similar anonymous 4chan posters, such as FBIAnon, HLIAnon (High-Level Insider), CIAAnon, and WH Insider Anon. Although American in origin, there is now a considerable QAnon movement outside of the United States, particularly in Europe."*

.

.

>>>>*"QAnon adherents began appearing at Trump reelection campaign rallies in August 2018. Bill Mitchell, a broadcaster who has promoted QAnon, attended a White House "social media summit" in July 2019. QAnon believers commonly tag their social media posts with the hashtag #WWG1WGA, signifying the motto "Where We Go One, We Go All". At an August 2019 rally, a man warming up the crowd used the QAnon motto, later denying that it was a QAnon reference. This occurred hours after the FBI published a report calling QAnon a potential source of domestic terrorism—the first time the agency had so rated a fringe conspiracy theory. According to analysis by Media Matters for America, as of October 2020, Trump had amplified QAnon messaging at least 265 times by retweeting or mentioning 152 Twitter accounts affiliated with QAnon, sometimes multiple times a day. QAnon followers came to refer to Trump as "Q+""*

.

.

>>>>*"The number of QAnon adherents is unclear as of October 2020, but the group maintains a large online following. In June 2020, Q exhorted followers to take a "digital soldiers oath", and many did, using the Twitter hashtag #TakeTheOath.[42] In July 2020, Twitter banned thousands of QAnon-affiliated accounts and changed its algorithms to reduce the conspiracy theory's spread.[43] A Facebook internal analysis reported in August found millions of followers across thousands of groups and pages; Facebook acted later that month to remove and restrict QAnon activity,[44][45] and in October it said it would ban the conspiracy theory from its platform altogether. Followers had also migrated to dedicated message boards such as EndChan and 8chan (now rebranded as "8kun"), where they organized to wage information warfare in an attempt to influence the 2020 United States presidential election.[47] Following Trump's loss to Joe Biden in the election, QAnon beliefs became a part of attempts to overturn the results and Trump's loss, culminating in the storming of the United States Capitol, leading to a further crackdown on QAnon-affiliated content on social media."*

.

.


>>>>*"Anonymous is a decentralized international activist/hacktivist collective/movement that is widely known for its various cyber attacks against several governments, government institutions and government agencies, corporations, and the Church of Scientology."*

.

.

>>>>*"Project Chanology (also called Operation Chanology) was a protest movement against the practices of the Church of Scientology by members of Anonymous, a leaderless Internet-based group. The project was started in response to the Church of Scientology's attempts to remove material from a highly publicized interview with Scientologist Tom Cruise from the Internet in January 2008."*

.

.

>>>>*"The project was publicly launched in the form of a video posted to YouTube, "Message to Scientology", on January 21, 2008. The video states that Anonymous views Scientology's actions as Internet censorship, and asserts the group's intent to "expel the church from the Internet". This was followed by distributed denial-of-service attacks (DDoS), and soon after, black faxes, prank calls, and other measures intended to disrupt the Church of Scientology's operations. In February 2008, the focus of the protest shifted to legal methods, including nonviolent protests and an attempt to get the Internal Revenue Service to investigate the Church of Scientology's tax-exempt status in the United States."*

.

.

>>>>*"Reactions from the Church of Scientology regarding the protesters' actions have varied. Initially, one spokesperson stated that members of the group "have got some wrong information" about Scientology. Another referred to the group as a group of "computer geeks". Later, the Church of Scientology started referring to Anonymous as "cyberterrorists" perpetrating "religious hate crimes" against the church."*

.

.

>>>>*"Members of Project Chanology say their main goal is "to enlighten the Church of Scientology (CoS) by any means necessary.""*

.

.

>>>>*"Project Chanology began its campaign by organizing and delivering a series of denial-of-service attacks against Scientology websites and flooding Scientology centers with prank calls and black faxes. The group was successful in taking down local and global Scientology websites intermittently from January 18, 2008 until at least January 25, 2008."*

Guy Fawkes was an English Catholic executed for a 1605 attempt to destroy the House of Lords. In V for Vendetta, a rebel against a near-future fascist regime uses the mask in his public appearances and distributes many of its copies to the population to enable mass protests."*

In response, Turner sued 4chan, 7chan, and other websites; however, he lost his plea for an injunction and failed to receive letters from the court."*

Miang claimed that the report "seems to confuse /b/ raids and motivational poster templates with a genuine threat to the American public", arguing that the "unrelated" footage of a van exploding shown in the report was to "equate anonymous posting with domestic terror"."*

The suspect, 33-year-old David Michael Kalac, surrendered to police in Oregon later the same day; he was charged with second-degree murder involving domestic violence. Kalac was convicted in April 2017 and was sentenced to 82 years in prison the following month."*

The photos were widely shared on Instagram and other sites, particularly on 4chan where many users mocked and celebrated her death, saying she deserved it and praising the killer while depicting Devins as a manipulative young woman.

Those are just a few highlights of what the Wiki has to say about the Chan Movement and why so many users on Twitch and Twitter tac the word "chan" to the end of their username.


If you want to read the full aticle to find out all the horrors of this horrendouse group of terrorists, here is the link:

As of this discovery a new policy is now in place on my channel.. all mods are to **IMMEDIATLY BAN** any one and everyone they see with the word "Chan" at the end of their name, wither that user has ever visited my channel or not.


I want my mods to take ANY user they see on ANY channel ANYWHERE on Twitch to just ban those usernames from my channel as soon as they see them.


#From today forwards ALL USERNAMES ending in "Chan" are to be banned on sight.


#I do not want any member of this terrorist orgination near my channel.


#The Chans are horrible people and I want nothing to do with any of them.


#Anyone found to be a supporter of ANY Chan is to be banned from my channel, even if they do not have "Chan" at the end of their username.


On a side note... do you remember in June 2016 when a group of crazy protestors showed up in my driveway chanting that my family was "Satan worshiping pedophile cannibals of the Scottish Mafia"? Well, it says on that Wiki:


>>>>*"QAnon is a disproven and discredited far-right conspiracy theory alleging that a cabal of Satan-worshipping cannibalistic pedophiles is running a global child sex-trafficking ring and plotting against U.S. president Donald Trump, who is fighting the cabal."*

.

.


Does that me those people in my driveway that day were QAnon members?


Scary... that group included 2 Mormon Bishops, the Old Orchard Beach Town Manager, several motel owners from Old Orchard Beach, an excavation owner in Old Orchard Beach, and 2 Old Orchard Beach Town councillors... uhm... does that mean Old Orchard Beach is infested with QAnon members?


I think I am finally starting to understand the weird accusations that get tossed at me and my family... like being called "Scottish Mafia" when we are not, and being called a "BDSM Dominatrix" when I am not, and being called a "Satan Worshiper" when I am not, or being called "pedophiles' or "cannibals" when we are not.


I never understood these accusations or what the possible source could have been, but I had never heard of QAnon until 2 days ago when Twitter announced they banned 70,000 QAnon members off Twitter, following the terrorist attack in Washington D.C. earlier this week. 


The Tweet my mod was referencing, was a Tweet where I asked "What is QAnon? I never heard of it before."


Okay, so now understand WHERE they got the accusations from, they apparently say those things about everyone. But the question still stands: Why me? Why my family? Why my Twitch channel? How did I become a target for members of such bizarre, psychotically deraged terroist group? 


Also... it says QAnon started in October 2017... but those people who were in my yard, the first time they showed up was April 10, 2015, and they arrived again May 14, 2015, June 12, 2015, September 12, 2015, and each time they showed up the group was bigger. They continued to show up throughout 2016.


Each group was lead by a masked man who always kept his face hidden. The group members called him "Mark" and "Mark Who Needs No Last Name"... he was a tiny elderly man about 5'9" very skinny, and had unkept white hair. He always arrived driving a backhoe, which is the same backhoe that drove over my house August 8, 2013. He was the one seen shooting at me and my family in several livestreams. He was prone to showing up while I was livestreaming... I think he used my livestream schedual to determine if I was home, and I also think he was trying to "get his 15 minutes of fame" because he was always trying to get himself and his rifales on my webcams.


All of it was recorded via those livestreams *(yes, this is why several Witcher 3 VODs are not available for you to watch... it's the ones with the terrorist attacks on my family in them.)*, and all the video footage forwarded to local police, who in turn forwarded it to the FBI, and the FBI assigned Agent Andy Drewer to the case June 26, 2016.


All of that was a full 2 years before the October 2017 date in that article.



As of this discovery a new policy is now in place on my channel.. all mods are to **IMMEDIATLY BAN** any one and everyone they see with the word "Chan" at the end of their name, wither that user has ever visited my channel or not.

#UPDATED to answer this question:

......................

*How is it you have never heard of 4chan or QAnon? I thought you were a dark webber? Everyone always talks about how you know all the darkest deepest sites on the internet. 4chan is like the biggest dark web website ever.*

......................

Uhm... WHO exactly says I know dark web websites and what exactly is a dark webber?

I've been on the internet since 1996, but I build websites, I don't visit websites. In my 25 years on the internet I've probably visited fewer than 100 websites total, if that many. In fact, I can list off the top of my head websites I visit and use:

* Amazon

* Blogger/BlogSpot (as a blog writer, I don't read blogs by others)

* Deviantart (as a blog writer, I don't read/view content by others)

* eBay

* FaceBook

* FanFiction.Net (not visited since 2011)

* LinkedIn (as a blog writer, I don't read blogs by others)

* LiveJournal (as a blog writer, I don't read blogs by others)

* MySpace

* Nexus

* Pinterest


* SoapBox

* Squidoo (ceased to exist 2013)

* Twitch

* Twitter

* WordPress (as a blog writer, I don't read blogs by others)

* YouTube

* Zazzle

Wow... not only didn't reach 100, I didn't even reach 20.

I find it rather laughable that you or ANY ONE would think of me as someone who knows "dark web" web sites.

When exactly do you think I have time to browse the internet to even look for any website at all?

I work 80 to 120 hour weeks. 

I publish 4 novels a year, dozens of short stories a month, 2 to 3 non-fiction articles every day, paint on canvas with acrylic art for **[new merch products](https://www.zazzle.com/store/eelkat)** weekly, write for 12 blogs, and a manage/edit/write for 200 websites **[like this one](https://www.eelkat.com/)** which I built from the ground up and am the ONLY person managing/editing/writing for... AND I'm a retail merchandiser for HallMark travelling hundreds of miles a week to set up displays at WalMarts, CVS, Post Offices, WalGreens, and Khols all over New England. On top of all of that I make YouTube videos AND stream on Twitch.

So, explain to me WHEN you think it is that I have any free time for browsing the internet? 

I don't know who told you I was a "dark webber" or that I would know anything about "dark web" web sites, but, honey... check their username... did it say "Chan" at the end of their name? Yeah... THEY are a "dark webber" who visits "dark web" websites, not me, as can be clearly seen by them putting "Chan" at the end of their username.

You might want to reconsider where you get your information about me, who you get your information about me from, and fact check the source of the information you get about me.



If you could recommend I watch one VOD that best represented your channel, which would it be?

This one....

Using caps lock to signify a character shouting in a story, Yes or No?


Using caps lock to signify a character shouting in a story, Yes or No? from writing

>>I don't really know where I should stand, do you think writing in all caps is a good idea or not?

I don't use all caps for full sentences.

The only time I use all caps is when a character is frustrated and annoyed and yells out a single word, in this case used to show their frustration.

For example:

"No," he said yet again.

"Why?"

"Because I said so."

"That's not a reason."

"Yes it is."

"Tell me why?"

"I don't want to talk about it."

"Why?"

"I said no."

"Why?"

"Will you leave me alone?"

"Just tell me."

"No."

"Tell me."

"No."

"Tell me."

"No, damn it, leave me alone."

"Tell me."

"NO!"

The word no is short and in all caps is not difficult to read. But a long word or a phrase or a sentence, is difficult to read in all caps. I know as a reader, I always get annoyed when I see an long line of all caps ad, I can't see well. So I end up skipping those lines ad guess what they were, because my eyes don't focus well enough to see them.

Because of this in my own writing, I only ever use all caps for words like "No" or "Yes", very small words, and used in the manner like what was shown in the example above.

As for your specific example, I strongly suggest you get a 5th grade grammar book and keep it on hand. This is very, basic elementary grammar rules that are taught in 5th grade.

Let's start with correcting the following sentence...

"Sarah! Where are you?!", he shouted.

Basic grammar rule: NEVER use more than 2 punctuations in a row. (Caps here are used to highlight important words. This is the correct grammar usage of an all cap word. It would also have been correct to bold it instead. Please note that is correct, proper grammar, all caps DOES NOT mean shouting, but rather means "to emphasize importance". Any one who ever took high school grammar is going to know this and is going to be annoyed at any author who doesn't know grammar well enough to know that all caps DOES NOT mean a character is shouting. Worse, wait till you get hate emails from a reader who has a college degree in English... like I do and can quote the grammar rules off the top of their head.)

NEVER use more than 2 punctuations in a row.

?!", is 4 punctuations in a row.

The correct grammar is this:

"Sarah! Where are you," he shouted.

In this context he is calling someone. An exclamation after her name is the correct grammar. Exclamation points are self titled to explain their meaning: "Sarah!" is the shortened form of: "Sarah," he exclaimed.

You only use an exclamation point at a place where you would said 'he exclaimed'.

Exclamation points are like contractions. (can not = can't) They are used to shorten. An exclamation ends a sentence. Like a period, a new sentence must be started after using an exclamation. Same goes for a question mark.

  • This is correct: "Sarah!"
  • This is also correct: "Sarah," he shouted.
  • This is also correct: "Sarah!" He shouted.


  • This is incorrect: "Sarah!" he shouted.


  • This is incorrect: "Sarah! Where are you?!", he shouted.
  • This is also incorrect: "Sarah! Where are you?" he shouted.
  • This is also incorrect: "Sarah! Where are you!" he shouted.


  • This is correct: "Sarah! Where are you?" He shouted.
  • This is also correct: "Sarah! Where are you!" He shouted.
  • This is also correct: "Sarah! Where are you," he shouted.

The reader will know he is shouting by the exclamation point and the tags can be removed, thus:

  • This is correct: "Sarah! Where are you?"

By changing the exclamation point you change the character's tone of voice.

For example:

  1. "Sarah, where are you?"
  2. "Sarah. Where are you?"
  3. "Sarah? Where are you?"
  4. "Sarah! Where are you?"
  5. "Sarah! Where are you!"
  6. "SARAH! WHERE ARE YOU!"
  1. The first one with the coma, is said quietly, calmly, as one looking for a child playing hide n seek.
  2. The second one with the period, is said more curtly, they are losing their temper, but trying to control it. She's been hiding too long and he's getting annoyed.
  3. The 3rd with the question mark is starting to worry. It's now louder. He's wondering if she's left the room. The fact that it's now a question means there is panic rising in his voice.
  4. The 4th with the exclamation, is him now panicking. He can not find her and she's not answering so he's yelling her name.
  5. The 5th with an exclamation after both sentence is him becoming frantic. Panic getting worse.
  6. The 6th with the exclamation and caps, is him in full on panic, now screaming hysterically. He can't find her anywhere and is now terrified she is hurt. He's running around looking for her and now about to call the police.

This is the correct textbook grammar for use of exclamations.

Hope that helps.



EDITED TO ADD THIS SECTION:

When I started writing my answer, you had not yet replied to the 56 other responses.

You have now replied to them, and in reading your responces, I must say I'm rather apauled at your level of trolling.

Sadly, you are quite clearly a troll, seeking only to attack people who tried to help you. Your viciousness in lashing out at them (one of whom I know or a fact is a literary agent who scouts reddit for new talent, and at least 3 of the others are rather big names authors who actually do know what they are talking about, and you are coming off as a childish, cry baby, no good trash, peice of shit who just wants to start a fight

Your writing just in what you have said here, is childish at best, bordering on gibberish. It is painfully obvious that either English is not your first language, you flunked out of grade school and was expelled long before high school, or you are about 8 years old and have not yet been taught, basic, simple, 3rd grade grammar.

I'm sorry, but a primary school English teacher would have a heart attack just trying to get to the end of your question, and I don't even want to begin to try the count the grammar errors in your post. I can see more then a dozen. And they are very basic mistakes. 

VERY basic. 

They are mistakes a 10 year old with a D grade average wouldn't even make.

I'm sorry if the truth seems harsh, but you really are in need of taking very basic Grammar classes. To be an author, you need to know grammar. You'll never get published if you don't.

Something to consider: You may have the talent to come up with a great story and wonderful characters, but if you can't convert them in legible English, it won't matter how good of a story you can tell, because it'll never see the light of day, because no publisher is going to take the time to edit it for you.

You are making a fool of yourself in this argument, and I am not going to reply to you on the forum directly as you have made it very clear you are not seeking an answer and are only looking to start a fight. You already have 7 authors pssed off and fighting with you right now.

As I refuse to feed trolls, I will answer no more of your posts here on reddit.

I will instead answer the rest of your hysterial ravings over on my website, in the article I am now going to write about this situation.

Thank you and have good day.




Using caps lock to signify a character shouting in a story, Yes or No? (self.writing)

submitted 23 hours ago by tae_ka_pre

I recently saw an argument someone gave me when it comes to shouting dialogue a character can say.

For example:

"SARAH! WHERE ARE YOU?!"

"Sarah! Where are you?!", he shouted.

In these two cases, the first one may sound right. Since once you read it, you automatically shout it out.

The second one, the reader will only know that the person shouted once he reads the tags, this will lead to the reader possibly reading it again to convey the character's emotions when he said that line.

The thing is though, although the first one is quite fine, it's not widely accepted.

I don't really know where I should stand, do you think writing in all caps is a good idea or not?

Seriously though, shouting is rare. Obviously, we'd use it sparingly. It wouldn't be used Everytime a character coughs.

What about this:

"Hey!"

"HEY!"

The first one seems like the character just slightly raised his voice as to call out another character.

The second one seems as if the character is angry and shouted at another character.

Ever watch that disappointing metal scream in YouTube? It sorts of feels like that.

Ben was enraged. His hands were trembling of anger. Everything he worked so hard for was just crushed in a matter of seconds. It felt as if he wanted to break every single thing present in that room.

Suddenly, he stood up and decided to call for his butler.

"Tom! Come here!", he shouted.

It feels as if he didn't even shout. When I don't put it all in all caps

I think it's infrequent because characters rarely shout.

This is a weird analogy since everyone's saying don't use it too much when characters almost never shout at all. You can go through ten chapters and a character only shout once.

I read some books and it really just takes me out of the experience. It's like when I read something like:

"YOU KILLED MY FATHER!"

but instead it goes like:

"You killed my father!"

Of course only a few authors use it and it's not used frequently, that's because shouting isn't always used.

If you read some books, movies, stuff like that, there are some cases where the characters never shout, of course it'll be infrequent.

It feels as if the character builds up in rage but instead of shouting with anger, he just went and said it normally. You then see the tag that says ', he shouted' and that's when you realized 'oh, he shouted?', you then go back to the sentence and try to convey it how the author wanted it to happen.

"Hey!"

"Hey!"

The character shouted in one of these sentences. Guess which one

The only time time a period follows after hey is when a character is in a gloomy mood.

"Hey."

When you call on someone you say:

"Hey!"

It's just, for example, look at this:

"Hey!"

It would seem as if a certain character just called out someone.

...but if you made it all caps:

"HEY!"

It would seem as if he shouted at the character. It looks like he's angry at the character and calling him out.

I feel different. Whenever you see all caps sentences, I sometimes forget that the writer made it all caps, and instead just shouted at me.

Ever had an argument with a friend or a loved one in chat or something?

They suddenly speak to you in all caps, but you don't think 'oh they're using all caps to signify they're shouting', you think 'oh, they're mad'.


With your entire conversation now here, let's get to answering each part.


Seriously though, shouting is rare. Obviously, we'd use it sparingly. It wouldn't be used Everytime a character coughs.



I'm sorry, but what world do you live in where shouting is rare?

If your characters do not bicker and argue and fight over the course of your novel, I would say your story is something I personally would find rather dull and bland.

Any one familiar with my own books, knows my characters fight... A LOT.

The 3 main characters are in constant petty battles with each other over everything and nothing. Their fights are worse when the three of them band together and fight with someone else.

Quaraun, obviously is the main character. He is a complicated and difficult person to get along with. Few people can tolerate being around him for very long, due to his whiny, bitchy, sharp-tongued, hissy fits, his constant complaining about everything, and his assumption that everyone exists solely to serve his every whim.

Unicorn and GhoulSpawn, likewise are each as difficult to get along with in their own ways. All 3 of them are generally looked down upon by society, not well liked, usually excluded from social gatherings, and generally get along with other because each of them is a hard headed egomaniac that gets off on the challenge of pushing each other around. The 3 of them are each well aware of the fact that they are annoying as hell, but none of them is willing to change, and each of them is willing to accepting each of the other 2 with all of their flaws.

All 3 of them are hot headed, each has strong personalities, each has strong (and often fanatical) belief systems, and each are often in stark disagreement with the others. They often break out into fist fights. Quaraun is daily bitch-slapping Unicorn only to end up on the ground with a bloody nose after Unicorn punches him.

They are often in taverns drinking and once drunk, lunge at each other's' throats. They near daily start barroom brawls. Their fighting goes far beyond just yelling at each other, with their fights often getting bloody. Multiple occasions Quaraun has pulled a knife on Unicorn and stabbed him. Several times both Quaraun and GhoulSpawn have suffered broken bones from being beaten by Unicorn. 

Unicorn is a predatory monster, who eats Elves, and when angry enough, will bite Quaraun, pinning the Elf to the ground, then drinking the blood from his wound until the Elf passes out from blood loss.

Their 3 way relationship is brutal and violent. They do hurt each other. And yet, each one loves the other two. When they are not fighting, they are prone to cuddling and coddling each other. When one is sick, injured, or hurt, the other two are quick to care for him and hover over him like a mother hen. While they fight with each other, they will quickly band together and gang up on any one who tries to harm one of them. They are fiercely protective of each other.

This means that there is a LOT of shouting, yelling, screaming, and over all being very loud going on.

And yet, that example I showed you above, that came right out of what of the Quaraun books. It's an argument between Quaraun and Unicorn, and you can see how often exclamation points and caps showed up.

Here it is again, with name tags added.

"No," he (Quaraun) said yet again.

"Why?" (Unicorn asked.)

"Because I said so."

"That's not a reason."

"Yes it is."

"Tell me why?"

"I don't want to talk about it."

"Why?"

"I said no."

"Why?"

"Will you leave me alone?"

"Just tell me."

"No."

"Tell me."

"No."

"Tell me."

"No, damn it, leave me alone."

"Tell me."

"NO!"

~From "The Journey Begins" (Volume 4 of The Quaraun Series)

Punctuation is there for a specific purpose. Each coma, period, question mark, and exclaimation adds meaning to your story. When carefully placed, by obeying the rules of grammar, your reader knows exactly how your character is feeling and at what level their voice is.

Punctuation is that specific.

When someone, like yourself, has no clure what the grammar rules are or the meanings behind those rules, they do exactly what you are doing and throw punctuation in all over the place with no rhyme nor reason.

Because they don't know what each punctuation point means or sounds like, they have no clue where to put them.

When called out of their errors, they can choose to do 1 of 3 things:

  1. Learn the rules and correct their mistake.
  2. Ignore the rules and pretend they were not informed of the error.
  3. Act like a spoilt brat and throw a temper tantrum on a forum running around screaming and yelling at every one while making a complete and total jackass of themselves and proving they are an illiterate idiot.

Guess which one you are doing?

56 different people, all of them published authos, have responded to your question, all of them sying the same thing, and look at you. Look at how you are reacting.

You do realize that being an author is a profesion business career, where you are expected to act like a profesional business person when dealing with other profesionals in your profesion, right?

You're NOT acting very professional right now. In fact, you are acting like a 2 year old holding their breath to get their way.

I'm sorry, but you can kick and scream all you want, it isn't going to change the fact that grammar has rules and they aren't going to change just to kiss your royal silver spoon ass.


What about this:

"Hey!"

"HEY!"

The first one seems like the character just slightly raised his voice as to call out another character.

The second one seems as if the character is angry and shouted at another character.



Once again, I will repeat myself... in correct, proper grammar, all caps DOES NOT mean shouting, but rather means "to emphasize importance".

Any one who ever took high school grammar is going to know this and is going to be annoyed at any author who doesn't know grammar well enough to know that all caps DOES NOT mean a character is shouting.

The fact that you think all caps = shouting, shows point blank that you are completely clueless about basic grammar rules and are someone who does read, anything.

The grammar rules apply to ALL writing.

If you believe that caps=shouting then you are seriously lacking in basic education and either didn't go to school at all or were a really shitty student who didn't pay attention in class, skipped classes, and overall had your head stuffed too far up your ass to learn anything.

I'm sorry, but I have very little patience for someone who displays the level of willful, defiance based ignorance that you are displaying right now. It's one thing to be mistaken about something and not know the answer, but it's another thing entirely, to be given the same answer by 56 different people and then, you go off in a hissy fit and screaming and yelling at them because they aren't bowing down and worshiping your ass.

You came to authors asking for clarification on a basic grammar rule that you admitted you did not understand, and were given 56 different examples of the correct grammar rule, and now you are running around in a total bitch feast melt down because oh, boo-hoo-hoo, every body is picking on you... GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR ASS! No one is picking on you. That's all in your head. I don't what your problem is, but get off the internet and go deal with it. Obviously you only came here looking to start a fight, and you've done a good job of that. You never see fights break out on this subreddit. It's one of the most peaceful places on the whole internet. And look at you, working yourself up into a frenzy, bitch challenging everyone. Being a whiny little brat.

You ought to be ashamed of yourself, the way you are acting. Go take an ice bath and calm down.


What about this:

"Hey!"

"HEY!"

The first one seems like the character just slightly raised his voice as to call out another character.

The second one seems as if the character is angry and shouted at another character.



No. The first on his him shouting loudly, and we know that because of the exclamation point.

The second one is him having a total meltdown, running around like a hysterical, crazed raving lunatic, shrieking to the point that he's about to pass out. 

The second one is not anger, it's a mental patient raving lunacy and about to be straight jacketed and carried away.


Ever watch that disappointing metal scream in YouTube? It sorts of feels like that.



I'm sorry, but what the hell?

What?

No clue what in the heck you are talking about.

Earth to crazy person, hello, please rejoin the conversation.

Are you even listening to yourself? You're not making any sense at all. You are throwing out these random meaningless nothings, expecting us to have any clue what you are talking about.

No.

I have no clue what it is. I've never seen it. Maybe you should go back and try actually completing a thought. You are so worked up that you are not even typing full passages of conversation any more and are just tossing these wierd random, meaningless nothings at everyone now.

No one here knows what you are talking about, because you are thinking 90% of your conversation in your head and only typing out the last couple of lines.

Can any one say schizophrenia?

I know schizophrenia well. I grew up with adults who had it, and were very unmedicated when they seriously needed to be, and you Honey, now that you are angry and flipping out on a forum, your schizophrenia is showing big time. 

Please go see a psychiatrist and get some medication for it. You very much need it and it's becoming more and more obvious with each new post you make.


Ben was enraged. His hands were trembling of anger. Everything he worked so hard for was just crushed in a matter of seconds. It felt as if he wanted to break every single thing present in that room.

Suddenly, he stood up and decided to call for his butler.

"Tom! Come here!", he shouted.



Uhm... so now what are you talking about?

Who is Ben?

Who is Tom?

What butler?

No on on this thread has mentioned a Ben, Tom, or butler, and you not replying to any one specifically and just tossing these comments out all willy nilly, no one here knows who you are responding to and what the heck you are talking about.

Can you at least TRY to put a full complete thought into one of your comments before commenting?

And since you've tossed this one in, I'll correct this one too.

This is incorrect: "Tom! Come here!", he shouted.

This is what it should be: "Tom! Come here!" He shouted.

Or else it could correctly also be this: "Tom! Come here," he shouted.

You learn commas in 2nd grade, by the way. You are posting dozens of wild gibberish posts, tossing commas in all willy nilly. You've not used a single comma correctly yet. Normally I don't bother correcting a person's grammar, but you are running around bragging your perfect grammar and, I'm but, your grammar isn't anything even close to correct, let alone perfect.


It feels as if he didn't even shout. When I don't put it all in all caps



Who?

What are you talking about?

Who are you replying to.

No one knows, what you are talking about or who you are replying to. Have you never used a forum before? Do you not know how to reply to people?

Do you even know how to convey a full, complete thought?

Your posts are so mixed up and disjointed. You are just throwing random, unconnected sentances out here and there. Clearly, you've got a conversation with yourself going on in your head and you are replying to that and not replying to anyone here on the forum.

We can't help you like this. No one can.

Calm the fuck down, you are having a freaking melt down over nothing. What the hell is wrong with you? Are freaking drunk or something? Damn, Honey, you're messed up big time.

If you want anyone to reply to these comments, put some context in here so we know what in the heck you are talking about.


I think it's infrequent because characters rarely shout.

This is a weird analogy since everyone's saying don't use it too much when characters almost never shout at all. You can go through ten chapters and a character only shout once.

I read some books and it really just takes me out of the experience. It's like when I read something like:

"YOU KILLED MY FATHER!"

but instead it goes like:

"You killed my father!"

Of course only a few authors use it and it's not used frequently, that's because shouting isn't always used.

If you read some books, movies, stuff like that, there are some cases where the characters never shout, of course it'll be infrequent.

It feels as if the character builds up in rage but instead of shouting with anger, he just went and said it normally. You then see the tag that says ', he shouted' and that's when you realized 'oh, he shouted?', you then go back to the sentence and try to convey it how the author wanted it to happen.



What's infrequent? All caps?

And again, as I already asked... what planet do you live on where no one shouts?

As for authors using caps infrequently... that's because most authors actually know grammar and how to use it and use it correctly. Unlike yourself, they know how to take their head out of their ass and actually find out what the rules are and use them, correctly and properly.

And... how often do you REALLY read movies.

Again, you are coming off like a drug peice of shit right now.

You never went to school, you don't know grammar, we get it. Are you really sure you want to continue this little multi-post feast rant of yours? You're just making a fool of yourself you know.


"Hey!"

"Hey!"

The character shouted in one of these sentences. Guess which one



Both of those sentences are shouting, you're just too ignorant to know that.

And... again, you are just tossing random rant posts out into thin air. Where you intending to be replying to somebody here? Was there another side to this conversation. Who exactly are you fighting with? Are you aware the people in your head aren't real?

You are becoming more childish with each new post.

I think you need a time out.


The only time time a period follows after hey is when a character is in a gloomy mood.

"Hey."

When you call on someone you say:

"Hey!"



And... is this supposed to be a continuation of that last post? Where you trying to convey a full thought and almost succeeded but posted each one 5 minutes apart?

Do you have any idea how difficult it is to reply to you when you post like this?

"Hey," he said.

"Hey," she replied.

Neither is gloomy.

Remove the tags and you get:

"Hey."

"Hey."

Again, neither is gloomy.

How do you see gloom here?

This is just basic standard, proper English. Where's the gloom of which you speak?


It's just, for example, look at this:

"Hey!"

It would seem as if a certain character just called out someone.

...but if you made it all caps:

"HEY!"

It would seem as if he shouted at the character. It looks like he's angry at the character and calling him out.



You're just gonna keep posting like this all night, aren't you.

What are you doing... do you leave, have a donut, then come back 10 minutes later to finish typing your thought in a new post?

You are so manic. You know that.

You must be a nightmare to live with. But moving past your inability to post a full thought in a single post and excessive need to post bits and pieces of thoughts, in a random mish mash of dozens of posts every 5 minutes...and let's try to answer what you are actually attempting to say.

I'm am so baffled as to what kind of parinoia you got going on in your head, that yo are so, completly convinced that all caps = shouting, anger, and calling someone out.

All caps does NOT mean anger and as I've already pointed out, any half-brained idiot who got anything above a D in high school, knows that. 

Basic grammar.

We are talking basic, simple grammar.

How do you not know basic, simple grammar on these levels of absolute ignorance?

In writing, you capitalize a word to EMPHASIZE it's importance.

This is why you often see a character's name in all caps the first time they appear in the story. It denotes that the character is important, and is not just some minor character. It alerts the reader to pay attention to this particular character because he is important to the story.

It's why in murder mysteries, a clue is always put in caps.

For example:

  • He looked around the room and saw a RED SCARF laying crumpled on the floor.

The narrator is not shouting "RED SCARF" at the reader. The reader knows when she sees a word in all caps that that word is important to the story. It is for this reason all caps are used infrequently.

How did you get through school and not learn these very basic grammar rules?


I feel different. Whenever you see all caps sentences, I sometimes forget that the writer made it all caps, and instead just shouted at me.

Ever had an argument with a friend or a loved one in chat or something?

They suddenly speak to you in all caps, but you don't think 'oh they're using all caps to signify they're shouting', you think 'oh, they're mad'.



Again... your schizophrenia is showing.

If you think an author is shouting at you, you have a serious mental issue that needs checking out. Please go to a psychiatrist as in likely treatable with medication.

I have better things to do, then spend all night waiting for your next post every 5 minutes... you know like writing a novel, because I'm an author and that's what I do.

So, I'm not checking back after this to see what else your insanity has to say.

Please, do everyone a favour, and go see a psyciatrist first think in the morning. You've got some serious parinoa issues here, that go far beyoung your inability to grasp basic grammar rules.

Authors, characters, people on the internet... none of them are shouting at you. That is not what all caps means. Get help. You need it very badly.
