When putting someone into a killfile, one should do it without hesitation, and without bringing attention to the fact. Killfiling someone and telling them beforehand is on par with running around with your fingers in your ears while screaming LALALALALALA

Hey, the ampersand is pretty cool & shit, no doubt. It was only a matter of time before someone devoted some valuable Web real estate to this venerable typographic entity.

This person clearly loves the Ampersand, & has devoted a little prose in its honor. It's actually kind of sweet.

Although it's not mentioned on this tribute, the ampersand was originally a ligature between an 'e' and a 't', a shortened version of the Latin 'et'. (which means 'and')

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
