Extract from Story:
Tennis star, Serena Williams, has been adjudged to have 'gone too far" by another tennis star, Roger Federer, over her outrageous behaviour in her recent match against yet another tennis star, this time the sexy up-and-coming Japanese chick, Naomi Osaka. September's US Open final, which she lost, was ruined by Williams' outburst, during which she called umpire, Carlos Ramos, "a liar", "a cheat".....

Eh, comma, caps, comma, caps, comma, caps....

I once put a comma behind
It turned our editor blind
He told me to stuff it
So, I guess it's back to the grind.

The capital letters all through the headline of this attempt...Like most of your US writers do.

Spoof guidelines, as once given to us by QM, state clearly, headlines should not contain Capital Letters all through.

It's not my business, it was just a funny reply to things that happen here and should not.

As is often the case, you are wrong.

Sorry to be blunt, but there it is.

And here it is, from the Approval Center guidelines:

"Titles must not be in all uppercase (capital letters) or unnecessarily contain any words written in uppercase"

How odd that you can't understand that, JO.

Of course, I don't know what QM told you. Maybe it's her who is to blame for not being able to correctly interpret a simple instruction written in straightforward English, and then passing it on to you.

I like that idea! Let's blame her!
