Well there were a lot of talk here on Typophile, on a lot of topics. It would be better to check if the issue you’re interested in was already discussed. You can also resuscitate an old thread, adding what you think it’s missing to it!

No.

I think the interrobang is an interesting concept. But then again, I feel like our current punctuation system(s) is/are perfectly sufficient for communication. I mean, it's obviously sufficient, because various people have pushed for the interrobang, and it's never been adopted by any major publication.

Shameless side comment: We currently have an interrobang up in the Intermediate Type ID Quiz. If you can identify the typeface you win... uh... glory! ;)
