Capitalization is used to emphasize individual, key points in a message. Not that it can't be done your crazy way, it's just incredibly stupid to think full capitalization of an entire message is anywhere near the correct way to signify a message's importance. Honestly, I find it very hard to argue against this because it just seems to me that this should be common sense.
Well you've changed the definition of Opinion B, so I guess I'll have to adjust for this:
"...they decided...in their eyes." It's still Opinion A vs. Opinion C, and still logically fallacious to say "Opinion A is wrong because Opinion C says so." You're completely missing the point of my argument.
the relevance of that is that not all scales are seen as symbolizing justice, just as not every capitalized word is seen as signifying yelling. which is what you implied,
"Capitalization is used to emphasize individual, key points in a message." maybe she thought that every thing in the message was important. i never said she was the smartest bitch in the strip club. maybe she had no common sense. they shoulda fired her for incompetence then.
opinion a is the opinion of the workplace that fired the woman, opinion b is the opinion of the women. "they" are the court system. "they" weighed opinion a against opinion b. in their eyes they saw that opinion b was in the right. who cares if it was logically fallacious, thats how the justice system works.
what is the point of your arguement. my point is that the workplace should not have fired the woman for sending an e-mail in all caps and in red, because they thought it was confrontational. they should have fired her on different grounds. from what was said in the first post, she did not actually say anything confrontational. it just "looked" confrontational. they should have fired her for incompetence or unprofessionalism, not being "confrontational".
