Re: ALL CAPS emails lead to woman's firing



Above is a common symbol of JUSTICE. Is a scale always symbolic of JUSTICE? No, but it is common practice, and most people are aware of this symbolism.

Similarly, typing in all capitals is taken to be symbolic of yelling, and the colour red often symbolizes anger. Yes, it's merely "opinion", but it's an opinion so widely held that it's become common public understanding.
