    Default Semicolons

    Almost everyone who uses semicolons tries to sound smart; semicolons are not commas. Saying things like "Joshua likes cheese; pie; and ADOM" is in correct. Now, I know that I definitional don't have perfect grammar and spelling. I'm fine if people type like "hey how r u?" But only use semicolons if you know how to use them. Thanks

    Who misused semicolons?
    I said it before, and I'll say it again. If I knew scripture like you, I'd prolly be an athiest too.. -gut

    People who try to use them. In newspapers, on most online forums, I *think* I saw someone here use it as a comma.

    Correct semicolon usage!!!! http://www.adom.de/forums/showthread.php?t=10543
    I'm not saying that people should type correctly and use correct grammar, but if you don't know what something does, don't use it.

    Using a semicolon isn't hard; I once saw a party gorilla do it.

    The only time to use a semicolon as a comma is as a "super-comma".
    i.e. While searching for a good place to bury the body, I travelled to London, England; London, Ontario; and London, West Virginia.
    I said it before, and I'll say it again. If I knew scripture like you, I'd prolly be an athiest too.. -gut

    Yeah, but you misspelt incorrect, therefore: your argument is invalid.

    I think it is important now; for us all to use semicolons; correctly.
