People that capitalize every first letter of every word is doing so for what ?
"For Example Notice How Each Letter In This Phrase Is Capped, Is There A Reason For This ?"

Ive seen people write like this. Is this some kind of auto suggestive type of writing style ? is there a web link that can clarify this for me ?

Thread titles? I guess they relate the importance of their thread to song or poem titles?

I do it on most of my thread titles.

I was thinking perhaps its part of some writing method for auto suggestion or subtle programming or something. R there writing techniques that shows you how to auto suggest by the way the writing is structured ?

what i mean is like a form of hypnosis, by capping every first letter of each word, perhaps its a form of reinforcement or something. Does this technique exist in writing worshops ?

At times little bits of bold, first & all cap words help draw the readers attention aiding communication. Especially in a busy forum like this where users quickly scroll through vast amounts of text.

i.e. An Earthquake and the Emergenge of an Epidemic on Exactly the same day added Emphasis to the MOST significant day.

This Truth of the TimeTable of Doom Twas posted months prior to the occurance to these Exceptional Events.

Timing of Events also adds Emphasis.

Even this simple post being on the same wavelength.

One might think this AC simply parroted my previous post, but then AC chose to quote a earlier statement and may not of even read all the posts before choosing to reply. AC is the only one who truly knows, perhaps s/he will enlighten us?

I do it in the titles of the posts I make, because it is aesthetically pleasing compared to some of the butchered crap that I see that pass for titles.

I also use it in order to emphasize quotes and quotations.

But, that is my own rule. I don't know if there is a linguistic or diction justification for the usage.

It changes the definition of the word to a proper noun.

Because they don't know where to put periods and start a new sentence. This way they will have a capital at the beginning of a new sentence without thinking.
