Confrontational Capitalization

Vicki Walker was fired from her job.
"She had been a capable and competent employee, he said. ProCare did not have a style or etiquette guide for employees using email, so it was not clear what was regarded as unacceptable communication."
So just what did she write in that email that led to her firing? She capitalized it.

All of it.

Remember when capitalization used to be a big no-no on the Net (and newbies would write that way anyway)? (Remember when the word "newbie" was usually found only on USENET? Remember USENET? Like, uh, do you remember remembering, man?)
