Exclamation points are overused!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
« on: August 02, 2004, 10:17:42 PM »
Since the advent of the Internet craze and email, have you, as I, noticed that use of the ! has increased astronomically?  I now know personal statements can be informal (depending on who you talk to) but sorry, I just can't let myself use a ! in a personal statement.  Will you?

No way do i have any in mine. In fact, i use them very rarely. ok. let me say that sentence again: In fact, i use them very rarely! they sort of imply that not only are u excited by your own words, but everyone else should be as well. It's too presumptive.

It's certainly a break from the monotone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  One placed decorously can't hurt.
