How often do you use the interrobang? Do you think it should be used more frequent? Do you like it?

Occasionally. But I've slipped out of the habit of using it over the years.

I just looked it up on Wikipedia. I'd use it, but I don't know how to type it on a computer.

Also, when I saw the thread title, I first thought that "interrobang" was a make-fun-of-the-internet word.

Ah yea. I just looked it up a few seconds ago. I didn't even know there was a name for that thing.

I use it quite often. If I'm shocked and/or severely curious. "Are you sure!?" "What was that for!?" Sometimes when I'm ranting and I feel the need to use about 3-5 exclamation marks per sentence I'll put one of these "!!!???" at the end of a question.

I've never used the superimposed unified symbol. But I use this: "?!" alllllllll the time!

I've never used it, and I rarely use "?" and "!" in combination with each other.

But orange's post was wonderful.

I too thought it was some weird slang for internet. Now that I've seen it, it looks like something bored teenage girls made up while note passing in class. "Oh look if we combine the exclamation mark and the question mark we come up with something quirky and cool!", is it possible to hate grammar?

The scarcely used symbol of an exclamation mark overlapping a question mark- should be used instead of the quite common "?!" or "!?" at the end of sentences. Also unicode U+203d.
Examples of use:

Are you an alien(interrobang)
Am I adopted(interrobang)
Did you rob me(interrobang)

taken from www.urbandictionary.com <-- other good stuff there! :D

I use ?! fairly often, I have never used the actual symbol though.
