Word of mouth

Those who yell are generally seen. That's what they want. They drown out those who speak calmly, more slowly. Perhaps more thoughtfully. Yelling will grab attention, no doubt. But it's never pleasant. It's really off-putting, actually; opposite, then, of its intent.

Yelling requires more energy than calm speech.

Therefore, those who yell will only tire of exhaustion, while the calm voice remains.

And will always be heard.
