    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.

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

    Re: Abusing quotation marks - DON"T DO IT!

    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).
