Just the single question mark or exclamation mark, please!

So fucking predictable.

Seriously. It's the punctuation equivalent of "I'm mad, me."

Why do you care? (resisting the temptation)

BakerStreetSaxRift Sun 02-Mar-14 23:14:31

I agree.

My pet peeve is posts with an exclamation mark at the end of every sentence.

MardyBra Sun 02-Mar-14 23:15:27

I'd bet there is a positive correlation between posters who use multiple punctuation and who say "should of/would of".

You see, the one person with the classy user name is agreeing with me.

It's not really something to get your knickers in a knot about though is it?

BillyBanter Sun 02-Mar-14 23:16:40

Sometimes you need emphasis! And sometimes you need emphasis!!!!!

It doesn't make people dicks. It makes you think they are dicks. You're wrong though.

Ten looks silly but you could argue that one or two extra emphasises your point. It may be grammatically incorrect but worse things happen at sea.

MardyBra Sun 02-Mar-14 23:17:17

I'm not posting from a phone Derek. confused

Fuck. I can't tell who is serious or who is taking the piss.

I shall lie down in a field of emoticons

Sure, worse things happen at sea Artic. But I've just endured lurking on several threads where the !!!!! and the ????? piss me off.
