I'm enough of an old-timer to remember that it was the SmallTalk language and development environment that probably got everyone writing function and method names like doNotPassGoOrCollect200Dollars().

I prefer programming languages with do_not_pass_go_or_collect_200_dollars() method name conventions.

Another annoyance are wiki engines that automatically linkify CamelCase words.
