    I voted 'I don't have a phone' as this was the most fitting option because I don't send texts.

    Why? it's just a full stop. I can't imagine moaning about punctuation.

    All the time. I got in to the habit of writing in proper English because I have friends who are foreign and even the smallest mistakes would confuse them.

    I do. No idea why though. Just satisfying I think.
    I also use exclamation points a lot too!

    Only if I am pissed off or moody. When I am feeling good, I end it with a kiss or just nothing - no kiss or full stop.

    No, I don't, unless im texting someone with authority over me. Why?

    Do you remember the Instagram Full Stop Disaster a little while back? Instagram started adding full stops to their notifications (e.g saladays liked your picture.) and everyone went crazy about it.

    Punctuation is very powerful, and the full stop just sounds grumpy. It sounds sassy. Harsh. The full stop makes you read the sentence differently. "Ha ha" sounds different to "ha ha.", do you agree? It makes the sentence sound final, like the person is sick of talking. I think it's wonderful!
