Do you forget to use Question Marks?

I often find myself forgetting to use question marks instead of periods when I am writing stuff, or should I say asking stuff? I of course no better and often I will catch myself doing it. Or sometimes I don't notice it until I proof read something or even worse after I have already posted something or published something. Please tell me I am not the only one who does this. Any body else forget to use question marks occasionally?

Nope, but I'm a little bit of a grammar Nazi. I slacken off quite a bit online already with the whole "I can now start sentences with 'but' or 'because'" but I'm pretty finicky with the whole punctuation business. I don't know if there's anything in text that I hate more than not capitalised letters where there should be, or sentences that end without any sort of punctuation. I mean, just looking at the sentence itself...it doesn't look finished without some sort of punctuation mark to round it off!! Doesn't it

I am not too strict, I can point out other people's errors a mile a way but I am terrible at catching my own typos. I always and I always punctuate my sentences but sometimes I will put a period where a question mark belongs. I type at a 125 words per minute though so sometimes my fingers are a little ahead of my brain I think.

Do I? I don't think I do, what a good question.

Yes, I think it is a hand, eye, mind thing. Our fingres are so used to typing periods that they just automatically do it before the brain has a chance to engage and make it a question mark. I do it a lot as well. I think it probably happens more with fast typists than it does with slower typists who are really concentrating on typing.

Yes, I do forget to use question marks sometimes. I think I just start typing so fast that I forget I am actually asking a question. I've seen other people do it too. It's an easy mistake to me, I think!

On occasion I use the wrong punctuation marks, spell things wrong and generally goof off. I put my initials in wrong blanks at work as well. I think we are all human.
