reliable reference needed?  OK, does any one on this list think that all 
upper case sentences as easier to read  - vote yes?

so far no yes responses, so the nay's have it! 

A reliable study conducted May 2017 proves nearly no one likes all upper 
case for reading for a variety of reasons.

Note: the question was not:
1. are upper case *letters* harder to read
2. are upper case *words* harder to read
3. *read* was not defined as only visual reading print, and includes, 
because of this list's audience, considerations for print disabled.
4. I forgot the 4th point
