Since we do write an awful lot here, I was thinking, 'Hey, maybe we all have preferred to use one punctuation mark more than the others while writing everything we've written this far?' So I made this.

I'd say that my favourite is the comma, though I don't overuse it and I also don't place commas where they shouldn't be placed. Or that's what I'd like to think, so I don't know whether I'm incorrect here or not.

I don't prefer any punctuation mark, but I find myself using the semicolon a lot even when it's not needed.

I love the squiggly.

I also believe the ampersand was once so poplar, it was part of the alphabet.

Allow me to be a know-it-all tosser and exclaim that the "squiggly" of which you speak is called the tilde.

I hate myself for this.

Allow me to applaud you for saying that. I also deem it necessary to teach people who think that '~' is called the 'squiggly' that it is really called the tilde.

Also I have nothing against it in general. It's fine and all, but I really couldn't make a sentence that only had the tilde once, and once only, so that is why it's left out from the poll.

Allow me to inform you that I knew it was called the "tilde".

I just like saying "squiggly" better because it sounds funny.

The semicolon is my favorite; it helps when I think a regular compound sentence would be too unwieldy.

The semicolon, definitely; it seems interesting.
