The "yelling" aspect of all upper case is an issue but not the main problem.
The most compelling reason to not use all upper case is that we humans
recognize words, not just from the letters that form them, but from the
shapes they create. And recognizing these shapes is more tedious when the
words are all in same height blocks. Most of us are in a hurry to read and
comprehend internet related text, and anything that slows that process down,
even by seconds is slightly annoying.
