I know my previous post was about not attempting to regulate and control the masses with rules and uneccessary law. this was however until i did something so detestable and unforgiveable i nearly blacked out from embarrasment upon my realization. i used "quotes" more than two times in a short paragraph. now i am far from an english major and certainly don't claim proper grammar, in fact its probably not even technically wrong. however it does hurt on a very different level. imagine for instance if i had been speaking out loud or even just reading my post to a friend. i would have been forced to become one of those air quotes people. i'm not sure what all of your lives are like but for me there are very few more annoying things than the overuse of air quotes. i instantly mark you and unfriendable if i have seen this. so please in an effort to save our own reputations and to never be looked upon as unfriendable, i request a two "quotation" limit per post. this does exclud a situation in which you are actually quoting something. whether it be a movie or a book etc. this does not count. please do post or PM me if you need further clarifications of this rule. Thank you

Each "quote" uses two quotations, so does that mean it's really a ONE quote limit?

Because two would be four.

I'm just saying....

What "if" people used them just to make other people read "it" with the inflection of air quotes just to annoy "them" and the air quotes didn't "even" really make sense?

I don't know what's wrong with you people, but misuse of air quotes is funnier than three's company.
