But does she deserve to be fired for this?

She was not fired for the all caps, the !!!, or the colored fonts. She was fired for continuing when told not to use all those things. I find it hard to believe she was not warned or at least told her behavior was inappropriate in the business realm. The supervisor should have doccumented things better.

There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.   Isaac Asimov

We reallly don't know if she was or was not appropriately warned and cautioned about her email style.  However, most people know this is considered unpleasant and unprofessional.  Perhaps this was a straw that broke the camel's back and she was fired for a variety of reasons including email.  OR  Maybe the bosses wife just doesn't like her because she is kinda cute and is 15 years younger than the wife herself.   And the wife along with her best friend and fellow harpie the Office Manager plotted against this innocent young woman out of meaness and jealosy?  New Zealand is a very long way away

I worked in an office where a women was sending out letters but when the supervisor put in the basket a letter she wanted mailed she found all the enevolpes the women wrote had every charecter in the address a different color.     Plus she doted all the i's with a red heart the supervisor took them out and made her do them over.  The women who wrote them was so insulted.   Can you imagine working in an office and not knowing the minimum way how to address a business envelope
