End of sentence character.

It is the most popular on the web by far.  In fact, I saw a statistic
recently on CNN how English is advancing at a ravishing pace.  It is
interesting how we are evolving faster culturally than genetically.  It is
no wonder that non-English cultures are resistant or defensive when
something more useful to English is requested.

Yet it is a fact, even I may not like.  I try to convince my wife to retain
her native dialects, but we live in a real world...

I was making a practical suggestion to end a controversy.  Seems it will
ALWAYS be controversial...


I yield now.  Please don't incite me to make any more replies.  I made my
points already.  Good luck.
