Feelings have nothing to do with it. Is there really an argument over
whether in English we capitalize *names*? I don't think so. Everyone who
speaks or writes English knows that names are capitalized.

Names get capitalized. That's all there is to it; there is no other
argument. You don't lowercase a name, and Internet and Web are names. One is
the official name, and the other is the nickname. And we don't lowercase
nicknames, either. ...

'Web' is not (or shouldn't be) a 'nickname' for 'internet'. Perhaps
that's not what you meant, but I wanted to clear that up :)

OK, I get the point on names being capped. Can you hand me an Aspirin
for my headache?

Oh, wait...
