I have seen an amazingly large amount of this since the new year. I do understand the 10 letter rule but it does need to stop. Posts and Threads are getting too hard to read now-a-days. With both text talk and unnecessary punctuation, it is getting quite annoying.

Totally agreed. This annoys me so much, and also when people use so much IM talk that their sentence is all abbreviations. Drives me nuts. It would be much easier just to say what you mean normally. It looks a lot more professional, too. Although, we really can't do a darn thing about it.

I only do that if I am excited about something. (e.g. - recieve love puppy) I would go something like: YES!!!!!!!! FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!... But otherwise, I try not to.

Agreed

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.".
Instead of saying "VERY CUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" (or whatever) You could post:

Quote:
Very cute ------------------ !
But put spaces instead of "----------------"
So when you reply, it looks like:
Quote:
Very cute !
And you don't have the big cluttered mess of exclamation points

I agree.
The only time I use several exclamation marks is when I'm playing a game like "count as high as you can before a mod/GC posts," and I need to get past 10 characters.

Thanks!

Ugh, I agree. I think the most I've used is maybe 3 or 4, but never above 5. It clogs up space, and in a way, it's punctuation spamming.
