    In theory, Q saves us writing out two letters, the k and w, however as one must always add "u", we save no time by having that letter.

    I think 'Q' is a lovely letter, actually one of the prettier ones, and life might be that little bit less pleasant without it.  I don't think life should be all about time saving, sometimes it's alright to have things around just because we like them.  I personally like all of the letters in our alphabet, and would not like to see any of them becoming obsolete - they all have their place and are valuable in their own way.

    And 'Q' is worth a lot of points in Scrabble, so it would be quite terrible if it disappeared!

    If you want to find the true significance behind the letter Q, I highly recommend that you search out the Hubber... What is Q. He wrote a delightlful hub on the meaning behind the letter Q and his obsession with the number 17.

    Otherwise, personally, I like the letter Q because it is so much fun to write in cursive ;-D

    No, I think they all have their place.  I almost answered "X" but then I realized we do use it a lot. So i'm thinking they all have a place.
