@Sargoth Wait--what final dot? Do you mean at the end of a sentence, or something else? If the former, I do it only if I'm out of characters.
Ha...just noticed you left out the final dot in the sentences. So you already answered my question. And apparently I've gotten so used to that happening on birdsite I didn't notice it at first!
@chendricks it's one of many small micro-habits that usually passes unnoticed until someone mentions them. another is to capitalize standalone messages, but not replies
there is a case to be made that this harkens back to usage of chat programs, where the speed of response is more important than spelling and punctuation
