I don't know that either you or I can speak for "the vast majority" of web users, but I believe that to be simply incorrect.

Check the Wikipedia definition of "netiquette" for confirmation that writing in all upper case is generally considered to be equivalent to shouting.

If that doesn't convince, try this, this or this (all plucked at random from a Google search on "netiquette").

Saying that the problem lies with the reader is akin to blaming the regular patrons of a bar for being miffed if a stranger comes in and immediately starts shouting his opinions to all and sundry!
