Why do so many people use all lower case letters on the net and in emails?

When I first begn using email, there were countless warnings about using all caps, screaming, so to speak, for emphasis. Now I find many people in comments to sites on the Net or in writing their blogs, use nothing but lower case letters, even to begin sentences.
Is there any reason why this is happens since traditional writing conventions call for caps for names (oper nouns) and at the beginning of sentences.
