Why is it "Rude?"?
Try writing out a question in full out capital letters, and the try to submit it! It says,
"Don't do all caps.
HOW THE HELL IS THIS RUDE? =)

Well, in a texting/typing situation you can't hear what that person is saying, but caps specify raised voices. If you are new to the internet, you should try doing a google search for "netiquette", it will help you get a general grasp of things.

In the Netiquette, particularly in chat rooms, THIS IS "SHOUTING" and is therefore considered rude. In fact, other chatters may chide you for that.
However, no one chides a chatter who uses bold, large and texture-colored fonts to catch the attention of others.

Many people consider all-caps to be shouting. It is difficult to interpret tone of voice over the internet, so many people think it is rude to use all-caps.

I don't see how putting a question in all caps rude. I would have put all my questions in all caps if Yahoo let me. :(

On the Internet, all caps are considered SHOUTING.
It's also harder to read.
