I don't know about that, I tutor English and this kid was annoyed because he was using capitalization incorrectly (I kid you not) and he said that everyone would be able to understand what he was saying perfectly well either way, why is everyone so crazy about something like correct capitalization?
I think it's because communication is about getting your message across, but more often than not that happens in ways we don't consider. Thus showing up to work in jean shorts and a mohawk is going to give off some non-verbal communication in the same way that incorrect capitalization would. It's the world we live in, and we use certain devices to communicate certain things.
