Conversations I don't like so much

An old friend of mine fowarded an email to me with some funny story and a hunky guy, the following conversation followed:

Unbeliever - now what if you had a guy like that?? would you go for it?
Me - nah... i'd pass him off to you :P
Unbeliever - whatever LIAR
Me - i wouldn't lie to you :D hmmmmm... i wonder if he has a sister???

Question... do you think the "all caps" in this conversation means she's yelling at me? Why do I feel the need to defend myself to her? I'm sure if confronted she would say that she was only "teasing" me. Truth is I don't see her very often at all. Probably haven't seen her in a year. We talk often on the computer and I never realized she felt this way. Then again, maybe I'm just overreacting. I was going to end the conversation by not responding after that last statement but then I happen to find the t-shirts that I posted just before this one. So I sent her the first one. hehehe

Hmm, dunno your friend, but email etiquette suggests that all caps is equivalent to yelling or emphasizing a point.

If she's serious that's sad. I don't think you should have to "defend" yourself. If she doesn't believe you then it's her ignorance.

Email conversations are notorious for misinterpretations and misunderstandings. Maybe give her the benefit of the doubt unless comments like that become a pattern...
