Person 1: Can you think for yourself? Every moron uses alternating caps as an insult because they're too dumb to come up with something good, you sheep.

...For them freaks who don't seem to mind spending a lot of extra time making their words alternate between capital and lowercase because they think it looks "cool" or "ghetto" or "omggsohott"...or all of the above. Usually the words do not include any punctuation and may contain other random symbols (i.e. numbers and signs)
