So

So why do I see more and more postings begin with "so"? Isn't "so" a follow up from a statement, such as, I am hungry, so I will eat? So what statement does an initiating 'so' follow from? Some may say so what, which is a so so answer.

It's the FF infection, which has taken over the forum. No thread is immune from silly polls about what we'd pay for an item with no specifications given, or what the first lens we'd put on it. (Sorry if they are your threads).

So, really - that's it.

Sooooo , It really is so annoying when people put so in front and even more when they drag it out while they think of a politically correct answer,
Speak your mind and bug--r the consequences

It is in response to a perceived opinion, strongly held argument or commonly held idea that is currently doing the rounds out there in the general media.

So.. who is going to be the next whatever...

or So are you going to purchase a FF?, (as indicated above.....)

"Perceived." True, if in the course of a conversation where the the 'so' refers to the subject under discussion. That is not what I am noting here. The word is put in front of new posts as if one should know the subject under discussion and thus relieving them of the effort to introduce it. Hell, I failed two years at school and was set back twice, finishing high school when I turned 19, so I am not setting a very high standard. At the rate we are going we will soon just be grunting at each other. OK I have had my say.

So? With a strong inflected stress on the question mark was heard a lot in my old neighborhood when I was growing up.
Mostly by first and second generation East European Jews.
Anglicized form of the Yiddish "Nu" Has many meanings including, "so?; How are things?; how about it?; What can one do?; I dare you!.
So? used this way only makes sense when spoken and with a lot of body language.

I am with you on this. It drives me crazy. My wife listens to NPR and this is where I hear it a lot. I brought it up while being a captive audience listening to one of the programs and she told me that she does it also. I said "I know". I really need to learn how to cook now
