Which letter or punctuation mark do you think you could get away without using for the longest before someone was like "Why doesn't [YOUR NAME] ever use the letter F (or whatever)?"


#1

As above

Length of time you’d get away with it included with your post please.


#2

Presumably it has to be the semi colon. Even when you use it properly you look like a massive prick, so best to just avoid.

Either that or an interrobang.

#4

How about we say it has to be one of the big hitting punctuation marks? . , ’ : ( ) ! ?


#5

Agreed, but I wouldn’t want to get rid of it, simply because it’s got such a great name. Who’d want to get rid of the interrobang‽


#6

Close bracket I reckon. People would get the gist, just assume you’d made a typo.


#7

I reckon it wouldn’t take long before someone was like “You ever noticed that Steve never closes his brackets? What’s that all about?”

Maybe a month or so?


#8

Bin off apostrophes’. Cause’s way more grief than its worth.


#9

Excel crew would get fired pretty quickly.


#10

“Ever notice how Steve never closes his brackets? What a cool guy. I admire and respect him.”

Yeah I reckon a month.

@Balonz decent point, the majority of my code would be borked. Probably a question mark then. I’ll just replace it with this face :expressionless:


#11

A question mark‽ That would be found out almost immediately!


#12

The exclamation mark, easy. People would just think I was a very serious man. They’d be all, “have you ever noticed how serious colossalhorse is?” And everyone would agree that I am in fact serious.

I reckon I could keep that up indefinitely.


#13

I don’t rckon anyon would notic if I stoppd using on of th vowls


#14

Which one?


#15

Yeah, reckon that would be easily doable tbh.

I guess that one episode of Seinfeld kind of bucks that a little bit but it is a work of fiction in fairness


#16

All of Seinfeld’s syllables have an exclamation mark.


#17

Havnt dcidd yt


#18

Could get away without the exclamation mark fairly easily I reckon. It’s overused in nearly all circumstances anyway.

Could just use emojis instead.


#19

We’ve been through this already but thank you for your contribution anyway


#20

I have never used a semi-colon in all my adult years. They fucking disgust me! No one’s ever mentioned it though.
