I agree whole heartedly. I've been practicing those effects a lot actually before I plan to publish any fanfic. It's very annoying and could kill the entire mood of a story. Writing is an art like drawing. I wouldn't want to read any thing that's equivalent to stick figures(even though there's nothing wrong with drawing stick figures). People need to learn more colorful adjectives and how to blend words to create vivid mental imaging for the reader. Finally, I'm not alone. <3 Happy Holidays.
