Cowardly Critic Objects to All Cap Text (Nov. 17, 2010)

Subject: Your appearance and the impression you are giving.

Look. You people may be trying to something good but if you don't stop SCREAMING your message out with giant text no one will think you anything by whackos who do not believe in their own cause of they wouldn't feel the need to scream it. Not to mention that if you shrink the font down to a readable size you can fit it all on 3 pages as opposed to 30. Anything over 3 in an unsolicited email is not a message, it is an assault. Please stop that.

In all charity I suggest you get a professional looking website and have professional looking emails put out. I am one who WILL NOT read a single word of an email that is screaming at me. If you have a reasonable message to get out please do it in a sane manner so even people who are probably on your side don't dismiss it
because it appears psychotic.

Best of all in your good endeavors.

Dear Cowardly Critic,

I use all cap letters for some words in the interest of emphasis, and not shouting, although you can interpret it as shouting, of course. Some critical words are emphasized in order to elevate their importance in order to be more readily remembered. I use bold, italics and underlining for the same reason, to emphasize.

Perhaps you're right. Maybe I should just stick with bold, italics and underling for emphasis. My goal is to make it clear to people who might not otherwise fully appreciate the importance of certain words or phrases in grasping the significance of what's being presented.

I use #12 font for most of my material. I have trouble reading a smaller font, as do older people in general. You can adjust the view size of your screen to match your preference.

Concerning e-mails: I have never sent out an unsolicited e-mail to anybody since starting this web site in 1996. I only respond to e-mails that are sent to me, including unsigned and anonymous critical comments from cowards such as yourself.

Let me point out something that perhaps you have taken for granted. The only reason you can send me an anonymous e-mail is because I haven't set up a system which REQUIRES you to register in order for me to receive your e-mail. I could have done that a long time ago, as Jeff Rense and many others have done. In that case, you couldn't send me an anonymous e-mail and express your unsigned criticisms from behind the curtain, now could you?

If you do a WhoIs search of my web site, you will find my name, my telephone number, my PO Box, and my e-mail address plainly listed and not hidden from public scrutiny behind a proxy company. Why am I doing that you may wonder? Why don't I follow your example and hide myself behind the curtain where I can safely thrust and jab at people and not worry about exposing myself in any way?

Maybe it's because I know something about honesty, courage, and conviction which you don't.

The appearance of my web site may be unprofessional to you, but I think plain text, made available for the full width of the computer screen, without ads or banners of any sort, without jumping Java scripts or other high tech doo-dads making it difficult to read and focus on the story is what most people prefer in place of the incredible visual clutter found at most web sites designed by "professionals."

Maybe that's just me.

Ken Adachi

Dear Ken,

This is exactly what first appealed to me about your site. It quickly suggested the person behind it was 'straight up and down the middle', so I stayed around.

Thanks,
Ashley.
