Does anybody else get annoyed when people put question marks at the end of sentences?

Here are some examples -

Can't wait for the weekend it's going to be amazing?????

My little baby girl just said mummy for the first time?????

Both separate statements by different people on a social network site this evening.

They do it all the time.

It drives me mental.

Anyone else?

Yes, annoys me too. Even more so when they actually speak the words as a question. Australian inflection, I think it's called. I wouldn't mind if the person WAS Australian but they're invariably not.

I get a bit annoyed about excessive punctuation use anyway, especially exclamation marks. But why would you put question marks when it's not actually a question?

(I know I'm unnecessarily picky about some of this stuff. That doesn't mean I'm not right. wink)

I wouldn't let it worry you?

Someone I used to work with did this. He is lucky to be alive.

I would have to hide them from my newsfeed.

Harsh, but necessary. grin

Hiding them from the news feed is a fantastic idea. Thank you!
