Default Re: Writing "hmmm" in posts?

I do it for 2 reasons.

1. When I'm thinking/deciding hard.
2. Sarcasm. I use psst alot in sarcasm.

Hmm, hum , h'm, hem... they are all in the dictionary, interjections expressing hesitation or dissent. They are a perfectly acceptable, official part of the English language. Yes I keep a great big huge real dictionary by my computer. Oxford Encyclopedic English Dictionary.

I think most people say "hmm" in posts because they aren't positive and they are thinking hard about it.

Well I do sometimes, to make it sound like I'm thinking.. Like:

Hmmmmmm... pollz?

But I also use it if I wanna strectch out my words because of 10 letters. I could say

Pollz?

But I'd need 4 more letters\characters before I could post..

Do you know what I mean?

I'm sorry that it bothers you - I can't really help it.

Thanks for clarifying this for me.



Actually, the letters Hmm are my initials. But if you want to believe that I am brilliant, I will let you.

-- Hmm
I believe that you are brilliant, I truly do.

Hmmm... well, I do it cause I'm thinking and when I'm talking to people on the forum I want my speech to be more like I'm talking to them in person. So if I'm thinking about something I usually put that Tee hee!

My grandfather types like he talks. Since he is Italian, he says, "Da" instead of "The" in real life and on the internet. It gives it more dialect, more of a human-like trait. It symbolizes thinking, so someone might be wanting to post more, but they do not know how to explain it, yet.

It makes me feel like I'm acting as I normally would! It's how I would react in real life ("Hmm...well, I'm not so sure I understand your approach."), so it's how I react on the internet.
