asativum commented on the word I dislike ampersands
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...
Yes! Automatic fake ellipses. How hideous.
*tops fufluns with one ampersand each, except for a special ampersand-free one for frogapplause*
Wordplayer commented on the word I dislike ampersands
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.
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.
