Us youngins use the period to convey passive aggressiveness or seriousnessThis is true re the period in texts. I had a friend get upset at me because I used a period. I told them to get a grip on reality, stop reading into text on a page. People interpret an ! often to mean angry. Often it is used to emphasize a point, not anger etc.
On the board here many, many years ago I had this one person get all upset because I used colors to emphasize a point. Some people piled on to me over a short time for using colored font!!!
They thought I was using color for reasons that weren’t true, no one asked why, they all assumed like idiots. Just as the “period” idiot friend I mentioned above did.
The only reason I started doing it was because I learned it from another board member and thought it was FUN!!
Understand what you mean, but the reality is people are using money mostly for payment BECAUSE they love or like,
ie interest, these animals.
It’s the latter that drives any hobby not the former.
I wrote mostly because in the exotics hobby there is a lot of bartering and trading as you may well know.
We use the exclamation mark to show excitement, and caps to convey anger
