I was always curious why it was that people happened to use more than one question mark(?), or exclamation mark(!).

Have you ever caught yourself doing that? I'm no grammar cop (or at least I don't try to be) but I just don't seem to see the use of it. Today I looked on this site out of casual net surfing and happened to see three posts all in a row which did this(on the homepage):

"is it available or not yet ????"
"Graphic engine changes???"
"stuck at shahikot valley???"

and then:
"How do you like the game?"

Just off-topic blabber from a bored individual. =P

Well people usually use multiple question marks because they are that desperate to get the answer. So more the question marks - The more they are desperate.

...Or they just do that because they are too tired to lift their finger from the key.
