Young people don’t trust anyone who
uses this punctuation mark

Periods may be coming to a full stop. While older texters may consider the period an innocent symbol that a sentence has ended, digital natives consider it a triggering form of aggression. The punctuation problem ignited over social media recently, with Gen Z and millennials agreeing that ending a sentence with a period is overly hostile and, worse yet, extremely uncool. “Only old people or troubled souls put periods at the end of every sentence,” wrote digital culture journalist Victoria Turk in her book on digital etiquette “Kill Reply All.”   Corrections*

How about it makes Gen Xers and Millennials appear illiterate? But I guess that’s all part of being cool. They may wake up one day when they’re older and want to punch themselves for being so stupid. But I doubt it.

How long before initial capital is declared unnecessary? If periods cannot end a sentence why should a capital letter begin a sentence?

Every email program should have a warning when you are using "Reply All". HR sends out a bulk email at work to all 2000 workers about a broken door and how everyone should use an alternative door. Out of 2000 people at least 100 reply-all with "OK" and my inbox floods.

So how about we completely do away with all spoken and written languages and just make caveman grunting noises at each other? Would that be acceptable to the poor little snowflakes or is it too hostile and triggering as well? And people call this "progress"?

I’m sure the author of this “book” feels like she is exploring new ground with her punctuation jihad. However, William Faulkner wrote whole books without punctuation. I had to read “As I Lay Dying” in college. Wasn’t fun.

My 1st experience with this "history-free," "punctuation-free," generation came when a young man became head of our old HOA. We take notes, keep the official rules handy. He had his phone. But a lot of attitude. He tried to pull an illegal and financially irresponsible move only to be outvoted after we pointed out the rules and past commitments by previous HOAs. Instead of accepting the truth he doubled down, threatening us. Later he ever tried to steal our copy of the rules. I bet he's with antifa now. No sense of history at all. Just a phone, not even a pen.

Readers who are offended by a period at the end of sentences are assuming threats that do not exist. If I were interviewing a job applicant who did not use a period at the end of sentences I would not hire that applicant. How about a writer submitting a writing for publication?; a teacher, instructor or professor reviewing a term paper or exam?; a judge reviewing a judicial pleading?; Judges writing opinions?. There are at least dozens of other examples. These people have too much time on their hands; they are snowflakes who in all probability have never suffered a single REAL hardship. Will the United States win a real military conflict that is soldiered by such people? I often doubt it. They are worse than silly. Although good grammar has been around for thousands of years these self-centered fools think they know better. The same applies to commas. The classic example is the critical difference between "Pardon, impossible to be executed" from "Pardon impossible, to be executed."

If I start reading a big slab of writing with no punctuation, I quit and move on to the next post. Life is too short to read substandard English and try to decipher the meaning of an endless spew of connected thoughts. If a period triggers delicate, lazy young people, I will make sure to continue to use proper punctuation.

This could encapsulate the state of public education in one quick example. They are who I've called the "google generation". They know how to type, or ask, a question, and they believe they've found the answer. Yet, it was only the answer that paid the most money to be at the top of the list, not necessarily the correct answer.

The softest, most pampered generation ever, is coming of age and this what they prioritize. Fine. A hard rain is coming and it is going to dissolve a lot of morons. Only the truly tough in mind and body, no matter their age will endure and come out the other side. The losers, the false virtue, the emotional cripples and the punks are begging for a reckoning. They will fight like vermin, but their soft life won't be enough to enable them to survive. Plus, they are really pretty stupid. Posing with a karoke boombox is not leadership. Not every city is doomed to this cancer and as soon as the big mouthed vandals try to expand their destruction, they will run into people who will put them down without much hesitation.

Periods are both sexist and transphobic, because only natural born women can have periods. And using a period at the end of a sentence is done to remind women who are just ending their sentence in prison that they are still second class citizens because they have periods... .

I have a solution. I don't text. I still have a flip phone. You can call me and we'll chat. You can call me and we'll meet up face to face and chat. You can email me, with punctuation, otherwise I'll think you are lazy and/or illiterate. I'll answer your emails. Ditto for letters, cards and postcards. But, I don't text unless it is an absolute necessity. And then, I use punctuation. I don't have time to text with people all day long. I don't have the time and I frankly don't have the interest. Period.

Overly hostile? Extremely uncool? Adults do not care whether youngsters consider them cool. And what's overly hostile is the way every generation treats the preceding ones as if they knew nothing, when reality is more the other way around.

I have no idea how using a period at the end of a sentence could be perceived as hostile. None whatsoever. “Only old people or troubled souls put periods at the end of every sentence,” wrote digital culture journalist Victoria Turk..." No, only people who were taught to write properly use periods at the end of every sentence. These days they're too busy teaching marxism 101 and rioting 201 to bother with such trivial instruction.

Same here #12. I remember someone who used to comment here from time to time whose posts never made any sense to me because she used punctuation sparsely or not at all. I won't name the individual but some may know her. Finally, another poster called her out for her comments and requested that she use punctuation to make her thoughts more understandable to the rest of us. After that I don't know if she posted here again but I have seen her on other sites.

When email was new the silly authors, or those new to the concept of emails would highlight using multiple colors on various lines of text to infer importance to that particular sentence. It was dumb then and dumb now. Getting bent out of shape for a period? Ludicrous. But remember, the youth today, and those who have never grown up will lash out at what they stupidly perceive to be threatening.

On Tuesday, Fox News contributor and former Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile became irate on “Fox & Friends” when speaking with conservative pundit Tammy Bruce about the current wave of violence breaking out across America. The moment became so heated that co-host Brian Kilmeade had to cut away. The heated exchange began when Tammy Bruce highlighted the fact that few if any, Democrats have spoken out against the violence unfolding in cities across America.“No Democratic has spoken out against the nature of what’s happening in Kenosha, Portland, Seattle, Baltimore, New York, Chicago.
Report: NFL Dropping Military Honor Guards

The NFL is preparing to end the use of military honor guards to present the American flag ahead of the national anthem, according to reports. A league source claims that the policy benching military, federal, and police guards is part of its COVID-19 response, according to Front Office Sports. “They won’t be on the field,” a source told the site. “That could change as the season progresses. But that’s the plan at the beginning.” It appears that there will be no flags on the field and the flag will only appear on electronic scoreboards during the playing of the national anthem, at least for the beginning of the season.

Moderate Drinking May Shrink Your

Posted by StormCnter 8/25/2020 8:38:53 AM Post Reply
A new study published to the journal Scientific Reports suggests that moderate alcohol consumption is associated with slightly decreased brain volume. Scientists have long known that heavy alcohol use shrinks the brain, but it's not clear whether or not moderate drinking has a similar effect. Researchers from the University of Helsinki in Finland explored the possible link within a sample of 353 Finnish men and women aged 39 to 45. On average, the subject group reported moderate alcohol consumption, indicated by an AUDIT-C score of 3.92. Such a score is roughly equivalent to drinking two to four times a month, having between three and four drinks a session,
