Cant we all agree on a phone number system

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"

NOT!!!!!! "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.

  1. In Aus, we are still using spaces. How much less ink do you think the US would use per year if they did the same? :-)
