Just for Fun: Punctuation

Here’s a link to a blog post about punctuation marks that are no longer used. Do you miss any of these? Which ones?

I might miss the virgule the most. Not because of how it was used but because the Latin root of the word could mean “rod,” “staff,” or…ahem…a certain portion of the male anatomy.

Who said proofreading can’t be fun?
