  • Yes, I dislike ampersands & I avoid using them at every opportunity.

    June 2, 2011

  • You know what else? I don't like? Question marks--don't you?

    June 4, 2011

  • ...and...ellipses....

    June 4, 2011

  • Well, more ampersands for the rest of us, then!

    *hands out ampersands to everyone but frogapplause*

  • Oh, but ampersands can be so elegant in a good font. I can look at a well-formed ampersand for ages. They make me all tingly... And in calligraphy... *swoons*

    What I hate are those ellipses characters that Microsoft Word inserts in place of the venerable three periods...

    June 5, 2011

  • Yes! Automatic fake ellipses. How hideous.

    *tops fufluns with one ampersand each, except for a special ampersand-free one for frogapplause*

  • But I think ampersands are awesome, so I agree with asativum. However, it is kind of pointless to substitute a symbol for a three-letter word.

  • I must confess: I do like ampersands. And pampersands, too.

    June 6, 2011

  • It's short-cut symbols and words that I dislike. If it's part of title or business (Noodles & Co.) that's fine, but I dislike seeing it inserted in a sentence just for convenience sake.

    A pampersand is a moist ampersand.

  • I like the way Fowler uses them in Modern English Usage, &c.
