Beth describes her work as an editor for overcapitalizing engineers:

I just lowercased half the caps, and all was well. That is, with one
exception, an engineer with two masters degrees and a doctorate. He
capped any word he felt was important and was very insulted and
insulting when I lowercased. But I was the peon, so He always Won.
So what is a tech writer to do?

You could also show them passages from _Winnie-the-Pooh_, with its cutesy
overcapitalization, and see if that scares 'em into submission....
