    Being pretty much behind the times, I have to ask:

    What does it mean when people capitalize every other letter?

    It’s used when someone is speaking sarcastically or mocking someone. Best I can describe.

    IT'S NOT QUITE THE SAME AS TYPING 'ALL CAPS'.

    Its funny and frustrating what people do that "mean" something today, such as the eggplant emoji meaning and that proper punctuation, such as a period at the end of a text, is now looked on as rude.

    I learned the other day that "skeet" no longer means shooting clay pigeons, which is a hobby of mine. I'm sure my generation screwed it up for my parent's, and theirs before them. I guess now its my turn.

    it usually includes this image of Spongebob to emphasize and mock
    Screenshot_20210503-105321~2.png
    and will include a caption like "sMaLl pLaNeS aRe DaNgErOuS"

    I had to GTS to find the "new" meaning of skeet. Things sure do change!

    Sarcastically quoting a statement or an oft-repeated phrase that sounds ridiculous to make it seem more so.

    Tantalum's "sMaLl pLaNeS aRe DaNgErOuS" is a good example.

    I told myself, no, don't do it. But I did. First hit is the definition of skeet, like from the dictionary, shootin clay pigeons with shotguns. So I told myself, drop it there, don't do it. But I did. I scrolled down. Next time I go skeet shooting, instead of saying "Pull" I'm gonna say.........................

    It has some other meaning? That's what it has always meant to me. But, my kids (who are now in their 40s) say I'm old, so there's that.

    Was going to say, 25 years ago that was "h4x0r SpEaK". I think over time it's morphed into the current mocking stupid things.

    Get off my lawn.

    So if I text “**** you” without punctuation, it’s not rude?
