British Punctuation Society announces closure, admits losing to “lazy”

The British Punctuation Society, which works to prevent the misuse of punctuation in English, has announced it will close, with its president calling it “ignorant and lazy.” The Punctuation Society was founded by John Richards, who founded the organization after retiring from journalism in 2001.

The 96-year-old president is frustrated that few organizations and individuals today care about the correct use of punctuation in English, saying, “We, and our supporters around the world, have done our best, but the ignorance and laziness of today’s society have won!” His closure announcement sparked widespread media attention and led to the collapse of the Society’s website.
