Default Too many question marks???????????? and exclamation points!!!!!!!!!! make things hard to read.

Short little pet peeve here.

When people talk like this:

what??????????????????????

And this:

yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It makes things kinda hard to read. Especially if they're in the middle of sentences:

yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i'm going to the mall!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it's gonna be lotsa fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And:

what???????????????? lol huh???????????????? idk????????????????

I can understand typing like this: (and I do this)

Yay!!!!! I'm going to the mall!! It's going to be lots of fun!!

And this:

What?? LOL, huh?? IDK.

But once you get past 5 exclamation points/question marks, it starts to get annoying.

Same goes for emoticons. I prefer to just use one in a row, because:

LOL!

Looks a heck of a lot better than:

LOL!!!!!! :bas:

Thanks for reading another one of my little "facepalms of the internet world".

I agree. Let your words say what you mean. A couple of punctuation marks, and one icon can add enough emotion.

I totally agree with you bluski. Two or three exclamation/question marks are enough!! Yes, definitely a facepalm of the internet world. xD

I agree, it makes things too hard to read and it can slightly damage your eyesight, when I use emotions, I usually first put one, then either that is it or I type some for text, then I put another emotion.

Thanks for the needed reminder to all of us!

I agree, however sometimes you need a few punctuation marks to reach the 10 letter rule.

Yeah, that is true: if you're in, say, the "Are You Game?" section of the forum, and you're doing a counting game, it's okay to go like:

154........
154!!!!!!!

But I'm talking about just in the general forum. If all you can say is "Huh?" or "Yep", I think you could maybe extend your answer out a little to "Huh? I don't get it." or "Yep, I agree.".
