In the last couple of weeks, I’ve noticed a new trend on various blogs, bulletin boards, forums and other Internetty places. People are starting to put. Full stops. In very strange places. As if they are trying. To make each. Individual. Nugget of thought. Into its own sentence.
I have a horrible feeling we’re going to be seeing more of this; these grammatical, orthographic and syntactic idiosyncrasies have a nasty habit of spreading around the Internet like headlice through an infant school, and thence into the wider world of crappy journalism.
Remember. You saw it here. First.
