    Default [HELP] Why you shouldnt use multiple question marks

    Hey there,

    I'm working out on an effective way to make users on my website understand why is dumb to type 'How are you??!???' when making questions, or even worst, the annoying 'Im fine ..!'. This drives me crazy and I dont wanna ban all those bastards

    So what I'm asking you is to tell me why do you thing using those marks on that way is stupid. Or not.


    Thanks for your help.

    (Yup, this sounds kinda lame, but it will work out)

    You should not use so many question marks because it looks stupid, it looks like you've just learned how to use the question mark. You look like a novice. Behavior-wise you behave like a child. It is also known as spam. You should only use a question mark, not so many. Lack of intelligence, lack of good qualities.
    Mommy where did you get all those scars? When I was 12, my favorite singer smoked weed, so I cut myself to make him stop.

    MrSandvik thank you.

    I try, Loget, but it's hard to not notice those things when you have to reply to pms. If someone asks for help, at least they could do it as normal freaking human being. lol I even try to correct them, gently and I get stuff like Ā«Dude, that's the way people talk on the internetĀ».

    It's easy, actually, easier and faster to use those marks correctly. If they prefer to not do it, that's called mediocrazy and I dont like to play along with that.

    Red for what should be removed
    Green for what was incorrect
    Blue for what was added.

    I hope you think twice before criticising other peoples grammar, I am far from perfect; but it'd appear that we all are.

    People from different counties, bad educational backgrounds or people who prefer to 'text type' should be able to type how they like, if it annoys you; maybe you can try learning to deal with it in a better manner.

    You can try to fix several billion people or try to fix yourself, I think the latter sounds slightly more manageable.

    So kiss me and smile for me, say that you'll wait for me <'3

    Well, yeah, my english isnt perfect, I'm aware of that, but the issue is beyond grammar. One thing is typing bad grammar 'cause you cant do better, doing it on purpose 'cause allegedly that makes people look cool, is another issue.

    And.. people should type how they like? So it's cool if from now on I start using caps like crazy and firing up my ? key? lulz
    Take a look at the rules of this forum.

    But thank you for the heads up.
    Btw, that Ā«be perfect before criticise someone elseĀ» thingy is a fallacy.

    Fallacy is an opinion; therefore it can't be correct or incorrect. Sure, type with capitals, if you want to type like that feel free.. You'll get banned and you'll lose all respect. You can still type like it though.

    If what you say bothers you so much make an adjustment to your forum and replace or instances of more than one question mark in a row down to one. Or make a rule where you aren't allowed to type like it.

    I'm not here to pick an argument, I just wanted to demonstrate no one can be flawless.

    So kiss me and smile for me, say that you'll wait for me <'3

    A fallacy can be an opinion, though it's based on a false or wrong notion:

    Code:
    fallacy [ˈfƦləsɪ]
    n pl -cies
    1. an incorrect or misleading notion or opinion based on inaccurate facts or invalid reasoning
    2. unsound or invalid reasoning
    3. the tendency to mislead
    4. (Philosophy / Logic) Logic an error in reasoning that renders an argument logically invalid
    [from Latin fallācia, from fallax deceitful, from fallere to deceive]
    You're weird, dude. First you said people can type as they want to, that those who didnt like it should get over it. Now you're saying that people who type with their caps lock on should be banned.
    You do not compute.

    And to close this discussion, I never said anyone is flawless, though you keep pressing the same button. Making mistakes is natural to all of us. Deciding to make mistakes based on the fact of - allegedly - being cool is plain dumb. Sure you have the right to disagree regarding this issue, just try not to prove somebody is wrong based on your misunderstanding and fallacies.

    And I'm done.
    Take care.

    Lol, you just put a bunch of words what I used together and make it sound like I contradicted myself, I'm glad you pulled up a definition on fallacy as you clearly didn't understand it before, never mind buddy. I didn't say ban someone who uses caps, I said if you cry so much about people not typing identically to how you type you should ban them from your website. Simple isn't it? Did you keep up with this?

    I think you're just mad because I fixed all your grammar mistakes in my first reply and want to correct me to 'get one back', oh well.

    So kiss me and smile for me, say that you'll wait for me <'3
