Brief efficient, a little arcane; it makes a person think about their writing. That has to be a good thing.

“To be mulcted of our money and mutilated of our property is serious enough: to be deprived of our colon would be intolerable.” 2 likes
“When we are very young, we tend to regard the ability to use a colon much as a budding pianist regards the ability to play with crossed hands: many of us, when we are older, regard it as a proof of literary skill, maturity, even of sophistication: and many, whether young, not so young, or old, employ it gauchely, haphazardly or, at best, inconsistently.” 1 likes
