I've been using the * action marks ever since I began... using action marks.
Now the cool thing to do is -, or even +, everybody's switching their ways to 'the cool thing to do'. Of course, this has been going on for a while, but, well, I've nothing better to do than point it out now.
The same goes for emphasis marks. I used to use ~, but now I use - or -- much more often. People have started to use /. It's everywhere. ><;; EVERYWHERE~!!! Because it's the IN thing to do. Secretly. The unspoken word.
I wonder who started the / trend. Matt? Kat? I'm pretty sure it was one of the two.
Oh, what else.
Yeah! That! The faces thing, too. Not as much people following other people. But it's interesting to see who uses "o.o" or "o_o" or "o__o" or "oo;", "o0" "o.O" "o_O" or "o__O", etc., etc.
Meh. Just something to think about.
