    I don't want to seem like a Nazi but when people put question marks at the end of sentences that aren't questions it really annoys me. I don't know why.

    Am I the only one?

    The weather is truly brilliant today? My name is Lefty Leo? Hmm, this is truly awesome?

    See, the thing is, question marks almost always twist the meaning, so even though they might be in the wrong place, they still make sense, if you know what i mean?

    I also find it really irritating and smug when people use italics like this.

    you mean on forums? i dont really notice it. what does annoy me is when people intentionally make the thread name sentence cut off like half way and then continue in the post itself...as if like to intrigue us and make us interested in reading the thread...things like:

    "is it possible to......."
    "i got a boyfriend but......"

    etc.

    i never read those threads
