    I don’t think it’s a case of people not understanding, that I agree on.

    And now you’re making the ludicrous implication that you know what I meant better than I do when I literally told you that I wasn’t commanding you to do anything or was even talking about you. 🙄

    I think we’re done here. You can have the last word to pretend you know me so well again.

    https://www.merriam-webster.com/grammar/em-dash-en-dash-how-to-use

    An em dash is often used in place of a colon or semicolon to link clauses, especially when the clause that follows the dash explains, summarizes, or expands upon the preceding clause in a somewhat dramatic way.

    Harry would never forget the Tuesday that Mabel called him from the bakery, her voice brimming with excitement—the bakery had added cheese Danishes to its selection.

    Although I admit I used a dash instead of an em dash because I didn’t want to look up the special character. I think most people probably understood what I was saying.
