I have to admit that I get addicted to "!" ! You know I've always liked "!" and use it in every opportunity I get.
But you know I always tried to use it when it was appropriate. I liked it so much so I chose 'Lisa!' as my username.(Of course it have another reason why I had to add it to "Lisa" and I explained about it before.)

How my addiction get started.

You know I chose "Lisa!" as my username in almost every site. We were playing "say something about the person above you" game. Whenever they wanted to say something about me, they always talked about "!" and how much I love it. So I strated to use "!" in every sentence instead of "." .And all of us like this idea. But I get used to it and now I continue doing this even in other sites.
Now I'm going to get rid of my addiction. But I don't know how. :uhh:

PS: I have other reasons to use it sometimes but you may not understand why I do it.
PS: I've decided to quit my addiction because I'm tired of answering to your question about that. In fact I couldn't be argumentative as much as before because I have to type as less as possible.

Now do you have any suggesstion? Do you have any experience in quiting addictions?

I have noticed that I have been using it a lot lately too! Mainly for emphasis though.

Well, there's always the "edit" button or just going back through and re-reading after you type. If you've used ! at the end of every sentence, unless you're writing about something that has you bouncing in your seat and bubbling over with excitement with every word you say, you could just go back and change them back to periods. That's sort of the easy way to do it. We could just remap your keyboard so the ! key doesn't work anymore and force you to go cold-turkey, but you might have trouble logging in then. :tongue2:

What? going back and re-reading my own post? :uhh: I'm too lazy to do it. I prefer not to post anything here to re-reading my posts.
About your second suggestion, are you going to kill me? I can't live without "!". Oh my God! I already miss it! :cry: Oops, I didn't want to use it but I did! :cry: oops, again...

When I see a "!" after a sentence I assume the poster is shouting or being very emphatic about something. It is annoying and confusing when it is used arbitrarily. When used frequently, it tends to nullify any meaningful emphasis that is intended in other posts which include a "!".

You're right. But since mattmns, arildno and my psychologist(yomamma) let me to use ! if I want, I think I continue my way. But be sure that if I use ! alot, I have good reasons for that. Even if my reasons wouldn't be understandable for others. :blushing:

You may think of it like that, but you know it's not true. Using "!" at the end f some sentences make them sound sarcastic. Sometimes I use it at the end of a sentence when I'm not sure of what I'm saying. I mean it's not my idea. It's what others expect to be like that.There are lots of other reasons you know, but anyway I'm not using ! as mush as before.

Sarcastic, eh? So you're trying to make fun of people that use too many exclamation marks?

It was you who said you became addicted to it. I didn't make up the junkie thing.

It doesn't have the desired effect then. Sarcasm is best dealt out dead-pan, with a simple period at the end, and then a carefully selected smiley, like the rolleyes one.

Sometimes I use it at the end of a sentence when I'm not sure of what I'm saying.
Consider a question mark for that purpose. It conveys the uncertainty much better. An exclamation point makes it sound much more emphatic, like you are absolutely certain of what you are saying. Several question marks can emphasize uncertainty, or just use this guy ---> :confused:

Yes, you're right. I didn't expect some people to take it serious.(I'm not talikng about you for sure) You know I wanted to start a thread about addictions, so it was the best chance. :rolleyes:

Your suggestions are always great. :smile: But you know I use :rolleyes: for different purpose. And I have to add ! because if someone ever asks me why yu think it's right, I'll say I donn't agree with that. It's never happened here and it means no one thinks like me about theses sentences. Perhaps I need to explain alot more about it but I prefer to cut it here. You need to understand my purpose to say something, to understand my writing style. Anyway I try to be less confusing from now since my way doesn't work around here.

Not really. I'm just trying to make fun of people who think stupidly or strangely in my idea.

Woohoo! That was a perfect example of combining a proper period with a smiley to make your point. Not a single exclamation point in the entire post, and it all made sense! :biggrin: (I'm just trying to get you addicted to smilies instead of exclamation points you see. :approve:)

You were doing this from the outset. At that point, who was thinking stupidly in your idea?

Moonbear, I'm addicted to smilies even more than ! , you know I can't reply any of my friends' mails without them You know if they wouldn't be ready ( it happens sometimes not very often) I tell them "I really don't feel like writing to you now because I can't use them now." and that's why I never give my friends my gmail. Anyway you should ask Greg to creat more smilies, because I really can't stand some of theses smilies andI think they're not enough at all. :cry:

I leave you with this portion of a Seinfeld episode:

Jake: I got a few messages, I wrote them down.

Elaine: Where are they?

Jake: Lets see, they are...here they are.

Elaine: Thank you. Heh, I'll call you back.Ooh, Myra had the baby! Oh, my God that's wonderful! Who called?

Jake: She did.

Elaine: She did? Oh, that's so great!

Jake: Where do you keep the corkscrew?

Elaine: In the drawer on the right. Hmm...

Jake: What?

Elaine: Oh it's nothing.

Jake: What is it?

Elaine: It's nothing.

Jake: Tell me.

Elaine: Well, I was just curious why you didn't use an exclamation point?

Jake: What are you talking about?

Elaine: See, right here you wrote "Myra had the baby", but you didn't use an exclamation point.

Jake: So?

Elaine: So, it's nothing. Forget it, forget it, I just find it curious.

Jake: What's so curious about it?

Elaine: Well, I mean if one of your close friends had a baby and I left you a message about it, I would use an exclamation point.

Jake: Well, maybe I don't use my exclamation points as haphazardly as you do.

Elaine: You don't think that someone having a baby warrants an exclamation point.

Jake: Hey, I just chalked down the message. I didn't know I was required to capture the mood of each caller.

Elaine: I just thought you would be a little more excited about a friend of mine having a baby.

Jake: Ok, I'm excited. I just don't happen to like exclamation points.

Elaine: Well, you know Jake, you should learn to use them. Like the way I'm talking right now, I would put an exclamation points at the end of all these sentences! On this one! And on that one!

Jake: Well, you can put one on this one: I'm leaving!

Lisa!, if you have suggestions for more smilies, you have to suggest what ones you want. Keep in mind not to add ones that can be abused in the serious forums (none of the ones of a smiley holding a sign saying "duh" or anything like that). Greg did try replacing the current smilies with those fat ones like MSN uses once, and they were met with great protest (especially since they didn't quite match up with the expressions on the current ones as well as hoped, especially since a lot of us use them according to how they look rather than what their names are). But he's willing to add new ones if someone suggests ones that are reasonable.

I wish I could! :uhh: You know my voice is sarcastic, but some people can't understand it and take it serious. :grumpy: I mean some people think I really agree with some stupid comments. They think I agree with them because they agree with them themselves not because I look stupid.
By the way, has my explanations helped you to understand why I use ! alot or not?
For example why I used ! at "The lack of Danger" thread?

what I mean is like a chat room with a voice feature, for people who are smart enough to have a mic for their PC. and then we can have video conversation!
