The text in Orange are people shouting.
/sh or /shout

/s or /say is general chat heard by people within your vicinity and is white
/t or /tellis someone speaking directly to you. Only you can see it. Text is purpleish
/l is linkshell chat within your linkshell. Text is yellow I believe?
/p is chat within your party and is in blue

/sh (Shout) is really the hardest way to talk in Chat, but only use it, if you really need it

I think /sh is also just wider in range. It is not the entire zone. I am not sure how wide it is, but if you are in an area with just few people and you want to ask around for group teleport, you should move to an area with more people before /shouting. Use it sparringly :)

There's this weird polite / cultural thing going on in FFXI and FFXIV where shouting is viewed as rude.

I understand why shout spam is frowned upon, but for new players with no in-game friends to chat with, no LS, no vent, etc. the game can be very lonely and quiet. I've always been a fan of MMO's having general, ooc, trade, local, regional, and other misc. chat channels.

That way, you can shout spam the appropriate channel and get the info you need from the people that are lingering in that channel. If you don't want to see that spam, you simply turn that chat channel off.

In FFXIV, not only do people tend to ignore your shouts (and therefore not answer your important question), they think less of you for being rude and shouting.
