Some people have a tendency to end their sentences with an over-abundance of punctuation marks. The most common offences to this happens with exclamation marks and questions marks and more often than not it's in the title.
And opinion on this aligns closely with that of Sir Terry Pratchett. But even if you don't subscribe to that particular train of thought, I think it's clear that this construct doesn't really add anything to the clarity or expressiveness of the question.
Can we please get rid of them? I think it would be fairly easy to reduce any case where multiple question/exclamation marks are at the end of the title to a single instance.
Ideally we could also do this in the body (or inside the title), but obviously this is a lot more dangerous (e.g. "What does the !! operator do in C" should not be reduced to "What does the ! operator do in C", even if
!! is not an operator in C).
What do you think?
Note that according to this query, there are 427 questions that end in "!!", 235 questions ending in "!!!", 28 questions ending in "!!!!" and 9 questions ending in 5 or more exclamation marks. There are also 4331 questions ending in "??", 1546 ending in "???", 221 ending in "????" and 61 ending in 5 or more question marks (note that the query is not perfect, as the numbers for 2 to 4 punctuations marks also include the higher counts, I'm too lazy to write the correct query).
As far as I know, this query also only finds questions that have not been edited to remove this. I guess that there are a lot more such questions posted than that, but most of them will be edited.
