    Due to the nature of many of today's post, I feel a "Punctuation DIR" is long overdo. Who's in?

    How about a DOS-DIR? For people who never switched to Windows 3.1 in the early nineties?

    Remember "Eats Shoots and Leaves"? (I've left out any punctuation, so you can play on your own.)

    @BSM1 ,

    Is it too late to make Huey Lewis joke?

    I want a new DIR, one that won't make me sick
    One that won't make me crash my car
    Or make me feel feet, feet, feet thick

    I want a new DIR, one that won't hurt my head
    One that won't make my mouth too dry
    Or make my eyes too red

    One that won't make me nervous
    Wonderin' what to do
    One that let's me punctuate without fear of reprimaaaaaaaand....
    Only a NEW DIR... will do..

    Awesome! I...think that's a great idea. Or is it? Yes! It is.

    A DIR on punctuation is long overdue: a much needed space to educate and inform.

    Just for clarification, do you mean the marks used to delineate sentences and elements of the same? Or do you mean the rapid speciation postulated by the theory of punctuated equilibrium? Either would be useful--even topical.

    Perhaps we could just assign a punctuation Nazi to proofread each post. I know my punctuation leaves a lot to be desired, but I wouldn't feel much motivation to click on a specific punctuation discussion site.

    Has anyone else noticed the similarity between New-DIR and Neuter?

    Coincidence? I think not.

    I have me hands full (literally) just keeping the staff bathroom toilets unclogged.
