  2.   I'm not sure what "Voting on: Whether to use typographic or ASCII punctuation in policy pages" means, but I prefer old-fashioned 7-bit quotation marks and apostrophes over the other style, which is what this section indicates I'm choosing.​—msh210 (talk) 03:45, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
  3.   Support Additionally although it's far less frequent these days some computers still don't support the typographic ones. Not to mention, I prefer the old-fashioned ones too. --Neskayagawonisgv? 22:18, 7 March 2013 (UTC)
    You rocking an abacus? Incidentally, it’s the dumb quotes that are new-fangled. They were invented in the nineteenth century to save typewriter keys.  Michael Z. 2013-03-07 23:06 z

I prefer typographic over ASCIIEdit

  1.   Support  I guess. There’s a substantial difference between “whether to use” and “I prefer,” and it’s unclear what the result of this vote means. I certainly wouldn’t support this if it means anyone is prevented from making edits with only the characters available on their keyboard. Michael Z. 2013-02-24 17:47 z
  2.   Support. — Ungoliant (Falai) 18:30, 24 February 2013 (UTC)
  3.   Support. It's not that hard to enter these punctuation, and even less hard to leave them alone when someone else makes the change.--Prosfilaes (talk) 07:24, 25 February 2013 (UTC)
