To want everyone to stop it with the crossings out?

If you have something to say in a post, can you please just say it, rather than doing the intensely annoying whispering-behind-your-hand crossing out thing? I wouldn't mind so much if everyone always used it correctly but people are using it for whole paragraphs of pertinent information. It's not an effective replacement for wit.

YABU I wish I could use it in work emails

HerRoyalFattyness Tue 30-Aug-16 21:06:48

this is going to be a whole paragraph that says absolutely nothing and means absolutely fuck all, and gas no bearing on anything whatsoever, and I might just start typing random words like duck and elephant, maybe even yellow. I might not though

Sorry not sorry

Although people who cross out every word individually like this give me the jitters.

I agree. We still have eyes. We can still read what's being written.

Jellybean83 Tue 30-Aug-16 21:10:58

I actually find some of them quite funny, of all the things that bother me on MN, that isn't one of them so YABU.

I love the crossing out, it's funny.

CafeCremeEtCroissant Tue 30-Aug-16 21:13:01

user7755 Tue 30-Aug-16 21:13:33

Queenbean that's the whole point


I wish there were more opportunities to do this in real life
