Are you for real?

We weren't. At least not if you understand the verb "to argue" as "to disagree", because it can also mean "to show", or "to reason". But I just explained my use of capitals to you, and to emphasize that my original post wasn't meant to be offensive I informed you that I
, as a person, do not yell at people, not even when I'm arguing, and surely not when I'm not arguing.

Not me, that would be the FIA.
I thought you
thought things needed to get dumbed down when you suggested you have difficulties comprehending a sentence if it's too long.

Poor eyesight has nothing to do with people butchering the language so bad their posts look like a random string of characters. When you use proper sentences and paragraph structure, your thoughts are presented to be organized, and understood, as opposed to a random train of thought. A period at the end of something means "done".
Apart from a very few selected posts, where my aim was to make fun of conspiracy theorists (see "irony"), you really think my posts are presented unstructured? You really think my posts "butcher the language"? Please send me a PM quoting some of these posts. A sentence is not necessarily better structured if it is shorter, and a long sentence may be well structured. Changing paragraphs is something you're supposed to do when you change a subject, not a sentence. Proof of that can be found, well, in any book. If you imply you find it hard to understand my English I do apologize as it is not my native language, but having studied the English language since elementary school, having a Cambridge First Certificate in English, Cambridge Proficiency in English, Certificate of adequacy to teach
the English language, IELTS (Academic) and living, working, and doing an MSc course in the UK, honestly, this is the first time someone has a difficulty understanding my English. I actually find it quite amusing when British people at work or at the university ask me
about spelling of English words, or to proofread something they wrote. I know it's tragic, but it does happens a lot.

Well, no one does. Emphasis is not purposed to be explanatory, it is just supposed to show or state that something is particularly important or worth giving attention to.

Apologize again, but, honestly, that is what I really thought when you said you have difficulties reading through my posts because I don't change paragraphs and my sentences are too long. I can't see why having poor eyesight should be considered an insult. It is a medical condition.
