Rant: People Who Capitalize Every Word

Can someone explain this phenomenon to me? First I noticed a guy capitalizing every noun he wrote, as though he forgot he was writing in English, not German. Then, I saw this answer to a post on a Flickr group about sewing:

Capitalization upgrade: all Nouns –> All Words (including words like “is” that are typically not even capitalized in titles!)

The final straw? This Facebook exchange posted on STFU, Marrieds:

It seems clear that Cynthia’s first response is not simply an aberration; her unwavering dedication to the All Capitalization All The Time Lifestyle is solidified by her second response. Also, isn’t the time you save by typing “U” for “you” sort of negated by the time you spend moving your pinky finger over to Shift every two to five characters?
