Ok I'm just going to come out and say it and hopefully enough people will forward this post to their friends that it will start a global movement.
Phone numbers use dashes "-"
IP addresses use dots "."
The correct way to type a number is "+1-212-203-4357"
"."'s are for ip addresses and to show you went to school and know where to put a full stop in your punctuation occasionally. They are not for phone numbers.
One pet peeve down, only 1,238 to go.
