People who use "end of" to finish statements on forums

Do they ever read back and think. "Yeaaaaaah, I'm a twat".
Because they ought to.
And as for the ones that write "end off"
I have no words for that, just quietly repressed violent thoughts.

Worra got in before me, was going to say 'gavel'.
Even worse is people who go '99.9% of children have blue eyes FACT', then get arsey when challenged and go 'if you want statistics, look them up yourself' or (even better) 'I don't believe in statistics'.
No, you just believe in FACTS.

TheFirst did we? Sorry I had a day of, can some one send me the minutes?
Worra, are you still secretary, did you take them?
I just find it rude when it's used as a way to shut down the conversation.
In Frys case I suspect that the end off wasn't needed and the statement was enough.
I quite like gavel as that usually applied with numerous intent. "end of" is dismissive.

Ahh, bugger 'em. It's mostly just a turn of phrase rather than a serious statement saying nobody may post now after this.
Someone typing 'end of' doesn't close the thread to new posts. You can still post on it and if you're in a bloody minded mood it makes you more likely to.
Or is that just me

I hate it almost as much as those who sigh theatrically and make the same point with 'why has no one listened?' Do they expect us all to go, right then, let's pack up?
Or those that demand evidence, an apology or an answer.
Seriously, this isn't a court of law!

I use it when there is an undeniable fact.
The many who flicked their hair through science class and believe diet babble, beauty-cons and probably that the earth is flat too don't tend to like it.
Ranting doesn't change the facts. The hard bit is knowing the facts.
