Removed the fullstops, boss
By - Iinneus
The fact that the sentence "remove the full tops from the bullet points." is the only one which still has a full stop is just *chef's kiss*
Today I learned “full stops” means periods at the end of a sentence.
Only in British, not in American.
Periods are full stops. Commas are little stops, semi colons announce the start of a related statement or the next item in a list; and a colon should be checked out by your doctor as you get older to check for prostate cancer.
Can you even imagine being a copywriter and having to come up with half a dozen "features" for a fuckin salt shaker? This would keep me up at night.

Should read: Remove the ‘full stops’ from the bullet points AFTER the first bullet point.
ETA: This is a joke about removing “full stops” from a pepper mill before using, right?
No, "full stop" means period.
Yes, popular in the UK. There are also tabs and “stops” that can be used in packaging. Maybe it’s a twofer.
The period punctuation.
Edit: the comment above asked what a "full stop" was. The comment below said they'd never heard of them before.
THEN, both comments were being downvoted, and they edited the comments to ask about "vote manipulation" (which isn't want that means). Then they deleted the comments.
This has been the nightly news.
I figured some future internet historian will appreciate the added context.
Well, I certainly did. :D
British English would like a word with you.
"Full stop" is not used commonly (at least in America). You're most likely to hear it if someone is dictating a letter or writing a telegram in an older movie or show.
> Vote manipulation? Seriously?
wtf is vote manipulation in this sense
And you think people are doing that because you got some downvotes? lmao you’re delusional
no one gives a shit
How can you not know what ”full stop“ means?
