This is such an important issue, more and more people are succumbing to what must be some viral outbreak wreaking havoc in the world.
I'm talking about unnecessary punctuation.
It's easy to become infected. You want to write something and add some emphasis so you add an exclamation mark to make it "important!" but dang, it's not important enough is it?? It needs to be MORES IMPORTANTS!!!!! What if people don't notice it?!?!?!?!?!!
So you add a loooooon line of them.
Then there's the issue of ...................
................... continuation dots that go on forever.
Here's the deal: three is the max for all of them. The dots even have a name, "mark of ellipses". But whether you're doing dots, exclamation marks or question marks, three is the maximum. Any more and you risk looking like an eedjit.
If you need trouble remembering how many, just imagine you have a holy hand-grenade and remember - five is right out!
This has been a public service announcement.
Tune in next week for " no space in-between quotes and punctuation " . <-- here be evil
