I thought so as well, but no, the en and em dash is used for this:


Either version may be used to denote a break in a sentence or to set off parenthetical statements, although writers are generally[by whom?] cautioned to use a single form consistently within their work. In this function, en dashes are used with spaces and em dashes are used without them:[1]
[Em dash:] A flock of sparrows—some of them juveniles—alighted and sang.
[En dash:] A flock of sparrows – some of them juveniles – alighted and sang.
The en dash (but not the em dash) is also used to indicate spans or differentiation, where it may be considered to replace "and" or "to" (but not "to" in the phrase "from … to …"):[2]
The French and Indian War (1754–1763) was fought in western Pennsylvania and along the present US–Canadian border (Edwards, pp. 81–101).
The em dash (but not the en dash) is also used to set off the sources of quotes:
In matters of grave importance, style, not sincerity, is the vital thing. — Oscar Wilde

My friend Brian has this to say about users of the ........

"It is also generated as a de facto longueur by low brows, yobs, termagants, and slatterns."

Also, the usage of more than three periods to indicate a pause of some sort needs a name. Got any ideas?

Yes. Shit is played out. Kaput! Just use those text equivalents of a metal dude throwing the horns sign as a replacement.

It's my favorite typing indulgence. Sometimes you can say more with a ........

This will be tough!

Re: Why do some people type posts like they're hanging on a rope in a windy canyon an

idiosyncratic typing seems perfectly normal where people have very little control to express themselves in real life. the internet isn't literary. its just symbols that link thoughts to eyes.

the best way to express honest thoughts is to write as fast as the words happen in the mind. every stop to fix an error is going to degrade your train of thought. once you lay a train of thought out its often undesirable to pick through it for editing, its like poking your cum or turds.

And no-one's even mentioned the daily conundrum that is the then/than nightmare yet.
Screw word definitions anyway, squares.
