LOL, Andy, have you never done dictation?If you want something accurate as you intend it, you need to vocalise the punctuation.Plus, with the old telegraph system, it helped break up the messages and acted as an acknowledgement. Like saying "over" on cb radios.Over.-----From Blackadder Goes Forth:[after Baldrick's Charlie Chaplin impersonation] Captain Blackadder: Yes... take down a telegram, Bob.To Mr. Charlie Chaplin, Sennet Studios, Hollywood, California. Congrats stop. Have found only person in world less funny than you stop. Name Baldrick stop. Signed E. Blackadder stop. Oh, and put a P.S.: please, please, please stop. Later on....Melchett: Oh for goodness sake, Blackadder, have you been living in a cave? The Americans joined the war yesterday.Edmund: So how is that going to improve the men's morale, sir?Melchett: OOooooohhh, because you jibbering imbecile, they've brought with them the largest collection of Charlie Chaplin films in existence. I've lost patience with you. Fill him in, Darling. (exits)Darling: We received a telegram this morning from Mr. Chaplin himself, at Sennett Studios: (reads) 'Twice nightly screening of my films in trenches, excellent idea stop. But must insist E. Blackadder be projectionist. Oh PS, don't let him ever stop.'
