rhetorical questions?

Should rhetorical questions have question marks?
It's been driving me nuts. I guess they should, but I'm just not sure because it doesn't seem right.

...maybe you could post that question on the Riverside Cluster LMS to see if anyone can prove it one way or another with referenced proof.

you can reference web information by copying and pasting the url into your documents after information you have used or quoted.

it's questions that don't require an answer mr.brainy

i think that they should have a question mark because even though they don't require an answer, they're still a type of question

Rhetorical questions should have a question mark because they are still a type question even if you dont have to answer them, so YES.Unless you make up a "rhetorical" mark for all rhetorical questions.
