Not just here, I was looking at the discussions I've started, and noticed that especially in the titles, I always have too many question marks. I guess it could be connected to my inquisitive nature, I've always been the kid who asked too many questions. And I guess I still am... except the kid part of course. In a way, we all express who we are, by the words that we choose and even the punctuation that we choose to express ourselves. I guess my words show that I'm curious about most things and well, I do like to ask a lot of questions, if I don't how will I learn, right?? Okay, there I go again.. But seriously do I use too many question marks??

I haven't noticed it really.. but now that you mentioned it... you mean you always use many question marks??? Well, I wouldn't suggest anything. Is there any rule for using only 1 question mark??????? Hmm... I normally use 1 question mark only. It seems the way for proper English LOL. But hey, if using more question marks makes you feel taller, go ahead and have fun. Ok????????????

Sure, as long as you don't become too loud to constitute a public nuisance. :P

Well,I had to get the point across somehow and those days I really was heavy on those question marks, when I started this discussion.

How typical of you, Vega! This post is a question too!!! Yeah, I guess you are one inquisitive person indeed. I do wonder how much more so you were, as a kid! I mean, a person with as many questions as you have, must have given a hard time to the parents!!!

yeah, i was one of those annoying little kids, who constantly asked questions, and wanted to know about everything... It's not my fault if I'm genetically curious...

To be gramatically correct one question mark will suffice, however it seems to me that often using chat, messages, emails, we need to find other ways to add emphasis, and this can be done by using underline, added punctuation ie:??!!, caps, or bolding out the letters, and with typing, changing the font of one or two words only. So yes you do, and no you don't. Depends on your own personal view points and if others don't really feel it is necessary then they can make the choices for themselves to either ignore what is written, or to read it as it meant, and not do the same things themselves.

Yeah, I guess it depends on the reader, and also on the situation and discussion as well...I was just hoping it wasn't abuse...

Can i be honest? This is annoying. This is not the best way to catch the attention of the others. For me it enough to put !!! or ??? if something is really serious and important to put accent on it. But if i put ????????????????????? or @#!!$@???? this is just abuse with the marks.

Well, I won't really say that I've put that many question marks to tick somebody off, I guess if you read through my whole discussion you would realize that it was merely a connection that I was pondering on, a connection between my nature and my words. I've never really gone that far, although maybe with exclamations I could used those excessively, but only when I really needed to stress a point..I mean the punctuations are definitely not the subject in any of my discussions or responses...They merely aid them...I don't I've ever over-used or as you put it, "abused" them..
