Is it neccessary to question the neccessity of the appliance of exclamation marks?
Of course. Every time I see a post from Dave I think he's shouting. He's trivialising the use of exclamation marks.

I agree - we must respect the hallowed sanctity of the mighty exclamation mark, sent from above and only to be used in times of peril.

Yes, my friend, now we must focus on campaigning for a reduction on the use of question marks. Too long have they been thrown around without correct neccessity.

Yep. Also (very distantly), William Booth, who founded the Salvation Army.
My great grandad was one of the founding members of the Labour Party.

I have absolutely no idea what his name was, but his surname was probably Cluett. It's a little fact that my mum throws around when we talk about the family history (fascinating conversation...) but I don't know much else about it. Sorry!

I haven't known anyone famous but i have met some famous people on holiday to california - i met nick carter (he's not v. goodlooking in real life - thus the meeting was dissapointing i think it was a catalyst that helped calm the backstreeyboys obsession me and my sister shared. We saw Cindy Crawford when she was pregnant few years back in santa monica and when shopping there were some minor celebrities we saw rather than met. As my parents are buying a house in santa monica, i'm sure when i visit them they'll have become aquainted with some famous ppl (yeah right - my parents????)

Dave, is it always necessary to use exclamation marks?
I'm sorry I just never notice! I shall try my very hardest. If you see me going back on the exclaimation mark bandwagon, please do not hesitate to shout at me.

I once tripped Shauna Lowry (of animal hospital) over.

Accidental, but a pleasing all the same.
