I'm sure glad we're all back to being dear friends.

Its just such a fukn cliche joke for internet tough guy middle aged upper class white guys who probably saw some coke once in college and are scared to even drive through neighborhoods where there are hookers. They make the same joke on the sailing BBs I cruise if that tells you anything...

See, this is the problem, Yard. Even when you're trying to make a smart-ass point about punctuation, you fuck up the punctuation. What do English teachers teach in schools these days? Sexting?

You say, "I'm never using a hyphen again just to piss of Nemo." Are you also pledging to never use a comma? That sentence implies that you did use a hyphen, once, just to piss me off. It's like saying, "I'm never using an ax again just to trim my toenails."

What you meant to say was, "I'm never using a hyphen again, just to piss off Nemo."

As to the em-dash (should be hyphenated) question, just know that a hyphen is used to join two words together in a compound construction (drag-free drift). Again, this is for clarity. Hyphens are also used to break up words that won't fit on one sentence.

em-dashes should generally be used whenever adding information to a sentence that disrupts the flow, or where the writer feels commas wouldn't be strong enough: "Winter steelheading on a 20-degree day in January—cold and lonely and miserable as fuck—can actually be quite pleasant."

en-dashes are pretty close to hyphens, but just a little wider, and they are mostly used for stuff like page numbers (Pages 5–7 are popular in The Drake) or sports scores: "The Blazers got the living shit kicked out of them by Memphis on Sunday, losing 86–100. Hopefully they'll do better tonight."
