Anyone feel they may benefit from a punctuation workshop?  

P.S. Selecting anything but Nope means Yep.

LOL!  You break the rules beautifully; however, I am certain you know them in order to be effective.   You will see broken rules in some of the greatest poets who ever lived,  E.E. Cummings, for example; however, I honestly believe that writers such as himself were well-versed with the basics of language; therefore, knew how to break rules successfully.  Just as any good painter must learn the fundamentals of paint in order to expand more abstractly; thus must we writers learn the fundamentals of language.

Understanding conventions in order to break them contributes to success.

aaaaaaah, maybe, as long as You don't make me change the way i uppercase or with respect to me, lowercase these pronouns.
It's part of my spilling style  ( i know people notice but only those who do not know this, will point it out to me )

This will be nothing less than kind.  Punctuation ( as grammar ) varies in different countries. I have only been instructed in Western ( America & Canada ), and British ( England, Australia & New Zealand ).  While most of the styles have merged, there still remains some differences regarding how quotation marks are used as well as periods within/out quotations and titles.  Listing time and dates also differs slightly.  My own writing tends to utilize both, depending on what my personal preference is.

For example, I prefer to use regular quotation marks for quotes, and apostrophes for quotes within quotes. This is the Western method, where the British is opposite, placing apostrophes on the outside quote while using quotation marks on the inside quote.  Conversely, I prefer to place my periods outside of quotations, which is the British method, vs. the Western practice of including them inside the quotation.  

It all comes down to personal preference and what you feel comfortable with.  Either use is proper, imho, except, for perhaps, turning in homework such as a thesis in a respective country who requires their own punctuation.
