I actually don’t see caps lock mini-modding at all. They’re mostly just…condescending.
But then again, you also have to remember a lot of people on this forum are kids, and some of these kids want to help. I know a lot of mini-modders are actually trying to be friendly and helpful, but they’re coming off as patronizing and rude to others. I won’t lie, sometimes people are just downright patronizing and rude, but others don’t know a better way to phrase it.
But I think what could be changed is also the way people approach these posts. On the internet, when you can’t see people’s faces or hear their voices, it’s harder to tell what they’re saying. You know, like sarcasm.
A lot of people ‘mini-mod’ me, or send me PMs telling me what’s wrong with my post–but I just say ‘k, thanks’ (and sometimes ignore them) and move on, instead of biting back.
It’s not worth anyone’s energy to get worked up over it. You can just choose to scroll on from these mini-modding posts, as much as the mini-mods could’ve done with your post.
