Scandal - Abuse Centered Right In The Mid Ohio Valley

Just today I learned of a scandal that originated right here in the Mid Ohio Valley and spread across the globe by means of the internet. The scandal is about the abuse of exclamation marks, assorted but nonsensical punctuation, and caps lock silliness. Several of the suspects have been traced right back here to this forum. Seriously, though, I feel that it may need explicitly pointed out: Adding exclamation marks to the end of every sentence does not make it more valid. It just makes it look like you go about town screaming everything you say like a fool. Exclamation marks have a specific function. If you are not sure what that function is, don't use them. They don't make you more right when you spread them around haphazardly. They make you less right in that you look like a gibbering polemic. You're less likely to be read if people think you are crazy.

I know, what's wrong with me? I recant and leave the usual three to call each other liars and sling as much partisan crud that they don't understand as they can.
