Punctuation Addictions

This seems odd -- but is anyone "addicted" to a punctuation mark? As in, you use it way more than you should, and incorrectly.

As you can see, I'm addicted to the em dash (slightly longer form of "-", then en dash, I type it as "--"). I even use it when I'm writing :P

I use them in places of commans -- but I'm not sure how my head works to decide which one to use.

On IMs, I use "XD" way to much, simply because at first I had lol, then :P (which I've always loved), and XD is just the next thing. However, after setting up my client to change XD into "lmao" -- it broke my habit, probably because lmao seems "too much" for how funny it is, so I'd subconciously use :P next time. People who don't know me think I'm going into fits of laughter when I say "XD" -- even though it just means "I aknowledge that you said something that is mildly funny, but probably didn't laugh"
(Whoahh... rambling alert!)

Anyway, do you have an addiction?

(Just a note: I didn't go back and add --'s for effect, so this goes to show how much I use them :P)

I, Skyfinity, have an avid addiction to commas, the small dashes that signify a pause, which started because I believe the make everything sound cooler Or the ANTI APOSTROPHE: Yes, Out Under Stars! Unbelivably Cute Kangaroos! Is abreviated by ANTI APOSTROPHEs to become Y'O'U'S'U'C'K!
Yeah....... I like commas and "..."'s Other than that..... I mean.... It's not like I can use muffins as punctuation marks....
No, but like me.....you also seem to enjoy the .... periods... ;-)
Yeah I do that too...

I'm totally addicted to commas, they're awesome =P
:p :P lawl hah lulz haha heh and lol. If I said any of the above, it means you got a chuckle out of me. Instead of italics, I say stuff like /this/. Ellipses, too. Dashes, I'm trying to use more.
And commas. Wonderful, wonderful commas.

I'm addicted to commas when handwriting, and I use xD way too much. Me and my friends have established "lol" as meaning "GO AWAY I DON'T WANT TO TALK TO YOU BUT I'M TOO NICE TO ACTUALLY SAY SO".
Haha, it's so true. I only use "lol" when being highly sarcastic. I also hate "oic".
