I have never read italics as whispering. I usually read it as emphasis or stress. I read ALL CAPS as shouting. I read bold as important. I only see bold as aggressive if emotionally charged language is bolded (ie: marked as important by the writer).

I find it interesting that others may still perceive these differently than either of us.
