To answer your demand.....

The first cake: I know I've seen it somewhere, but I don't think I've seen it here.

The second cake: I have seen a pic in the gallery here. I'm pretty sure the designer is from Soouth America, but not 100% sure.

EXCUSE ME! for thinking it was important to find out who's cakes these were. Just because you don't know the reason someone is using caps does not mean you should automatically think they are being RUDE.

If my cakes were on someone's website I would hope someone might use CAPS to get my attention......


Also, I know they are from someone on this site, that is why I posted on this site..... That is why I asked to be pm'ed about it....

EXCUSE ME! I thought your first post seemed pretty demanding (and rude) too!

It may be important to you to find out who decorated these cakes, but you don't have to shout, which according to internet protocol, typing in caps infers!

What is the quote? Your emergency does not constitute a crisis on my part...or vice-versa...something like that.

Almost sure that the first one is from Ben Israel.

I don't usually reply to things like what was said here, but, I find people in general jump at others too quickly. I didn't feel your pm was rude in fact I thought it was polite, you wanted to give credit and you said please. You don't hear that often enough these days, and I usually find people on this site to be nice and very helpful, which I really enjoy.

i took it as a desperate plea!!! i type the same way...my god you were just asking a question....YOU HAVE A GREAT DAY OK!!!!

cakelass Posted 16 Mar 2009 , 9:46am

I too use caps when I have a desperate plea or question . You learn something everyday, I did not know I was shouting if I used caps. So I will apoligise for any past posts if I have offended anyone but I am just learning.
By th way the cakes are awesome!

Bluehue Posted 16 Mar 2009 , 9:56am

Oh dear - how sad that we jump on someone and get so bent out of shape just because capitals were used.

I for one when penning a letter have ALWAYS written in printed capitals.
Why - because i find it neater, easier to read and just prefer upper case to lower case.
Anyway, who made it law that capitals was shouting.... just some pc guru.
40 years ago it wasn't considered shouting when completing exam forms and even now its not considered shouting when filling in any other form - actually many times it is stated to use capitals.

Considering what is going on in the world i would think capitals used on a thread is very incidental....and i didn't read the title of this thread as rude or curt.

LOL LOL i would use caps too if i found those cakes on a web site of mine - after i had picked myself up off the floor from fainting... icon_lol.gif

gorgeous cakes by the way.

MikeRowesHunny Posted 16 Mar 2009 , 10:01am

Omicake is right, the first cake is by Ron Ben-Israel.

AMEN SISTER!!

Karabear1125 Posted 16 Mar 2009 , 2:19pm

I didn't think her first post was rude at all, just in caps..and I didn't take it personal that she was "shouting" at me either - I just didn't think that, my thoughts were that she wanted attention for this thread and her "please pm me" wasn't rude either; sometimes you don't have time to actually include an introduction/bio with your post and you need to get straight to the point, which is what she did.

summernoelle Posted 16 Mar 2009 , 2:33pm

Well, to be fair, the caps were used in the subject as well because she was trying to draw attention to the post. And she did say please...

At first I thought the request was a bit short. But after hearing her reason for it (stolen pics, perhaps?) it is much more understandable.

Now lets not get all bent out of shape for nothing. Everyone have a wonderful day!

threematbros Posted 16 Mar 2009 , 2:33pm

This is why I don't post things very often. You never know who's going to jump on your case for not posting the way they want you to.

I DO NOT THINK YOU POST WAS RUDE AT ALL! DON'T LET THEM BOTHER YOU!

cocobean Posted 16 Mar 2009 , 2:41pm

Someone is in a bad mood today.

bbmom Posted 16 Mar 2009 , 2:44pm

My computer is on allcaps a lot because I hit it by accident, or because my kids were using it and caps are easier for them at their age to read. I think the rude ones were the ones who jumped. I was not offended by the poster just the answers.

rockysmommy Posted 16 Mar 2009 , 2:44pm

She did say "PLEASE." I didn't take it as rude either...when I am sending an urgent message from my office...on the fax cover sheet I use large caps...ATTN: so an so. I just need their attention and their help. That is how it came across to me...nothing demanding about it at all. icon_confused.gif

Bluehue Posted 16 Mar 2009 , 2:55pm

This will make us all laugh .....outloud

Look at our keyboards - all the letters are in caps - how funny is that.

c"mon - you have to admit........... thats funny

marriedtoagreek74 Posted 16 Mar 2009 , 3:02pm

Seriously, I thought the fertility issues boards were sensitive (yes I have a home there too), I have seen some people so bent out of shape about nothing on here. Half the time I hit the caps as well or my shift button gets stuc and by the time I realize, I am to darn lazy to go retype it all and just leave it. I love me cake, but there are much bigger things in life to bent out of shape about. thumbs_up.gif


Edited to say, "oh yeah, I don't think she was rude" icon_lol.gif

karennayak Posted 16 Mar 2009 , 3:02pm

She is actually trying to do someone a good deed.

She's recognised the cakes but not the creator.

And she is following Heath's guidelines, by not posting the link to the offending web-site.

We do not need to jump on her.

lomikesa Posted 16 Mar 2009 , 3:18pm

I do not think you were rude at all! if anything I saw it as a heading in the forum to get attention.

I work at a very prestigious university in the medical campus and I received lots of messages from very educated individuals who may be writing a message from their Blackberry or lap tops in hurry and most of the time it's in caps. Can you imaging me telling a doctor or a director "why are you screaming at me", or "you are being rude".

We need to not "SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF", life is hard as it is, there are more important things to get upset about in this day and age.

cocobean Posted 16 Mar 2009 , 4:05pm

edited to say...
SOMEONE (he he, sorry for shouting) is in a bad mood today.

Reasons to shout:

I'm sooo excited
I want to be heard
There is background noise
Your dog just took off out the front door
YOU CAN READ CAPS BETTER
You are surprised
You need help
You want to get someones attention
The house is burning down
Someone downstairs is wanted on the phone
YOUR CAKE CAME OUT PERFECT!
YOU SEE SOME BEAUTIFUL CAKES! icon_biggrin.gif

OhMyGanache Posted 16 Mar 2009 , 4:32pm

It is generally considered rude to fart around other people... no one would argue with that, right? It's generally accepted that to do so is inconsiderate. Likewise, it is considered rude to type in all caps.

However, accidents happen... and when someone passes gas - we may turn up our nose or walk away (quickly), but we don't attack them.

Just blame it (the gas, or the caps lock) on the dog and let it go.

sadsmile Posted 16 Mar 2009 , 4:51pm

I thought it was attention getting... and nice for her to go out of her way to try and allert someone about their pics being used.

Someone needs to put on their big girl/boy panties and get on with their day.

MUAH! (Maybe a kiss from the pink pig will put you in a better mood...LOL!)

mrsw Posted 16 Mar 2009 , 4:53pm

Wow look at all the the attention this post got. I do hope the question was answered in all this hub bub too. My, my, my I must go bake now - time is after all money and money is honey. Have a great and wonderful day everyone

alanaj Posted 16 Mar 2009 , 4:59pm

I'm so glad you posted this and got my attention with the caps! That cake by veragatafera mysteriously disappeared from my favorites and I've been searching all over for it! Thank you, thank you!

(Oh, and the one by Ron Ben Israel is absolutely amazing!)

Kel1222 Posted 16 Mar 2009 , 5:04pm

This is why I am happy I work with all guys!
Bluehue - great one. It did indeed make me laugh out loud.

LaBellaFlor Posted 16 Mar 2009 , 5:11pm

Give me a break. I think the more I'm on this site, the more I see people being ugly for no reason. If you feel someone is asking a question in a rude manner, it doesn't make it okay for to be rude back. She made a request in caps, what is the big deal?!? If you are offended by that, how about you just don't respond to the person.
