Peter, I understand that you would prefer to not use either, which of course is your prerogative.

Like it or not, though, "24/7" can convey clearly what a person really means.

It just uses fewer characters than some other ways of saying the same thing.

If you have to choose between using "24/7" or "7/24" in a sentence, which
way do you go?

Any particular reason for your choice?
