  • Abusing quotation marks - DON"T DO IT!

    I had no idea it bothered other people as much as it bugs me:

    Yeah, -I'll try not to. I would sure hate to annoy people

    I like abusing the semi colon myself.

      Doesn't bother me at all. If it's done properly that is. It expresses an emotion. But like anything, I can see where some people might abuse the system.

          "Everyone" be careful for this kind of "abuse."

            Just don't abuse the colon. For me, I have to start my 12 steps to remove my posts and emails of the ellipse ...

              My wife has branded that in my brain "don't abuse the colon".

                I admit that I do it a lot.

                          The colon is my favorite punctuation.

                          You want to see misuse of the quote function, then read the comics. Goodness!
                          Good morning, son
                          In twenty years from now
                          Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                          And I can tell you 'bout today
                          And how I picked you up and everything changed
                          It was pain
                          Sunny days and rain
                          I knew you'd feel the same things...

                            "Some people" need to seriously "get a life" and "lighten up." If this is an example of what really bothers you, you are lucky! (That is a collective you - not a specific you).
