Whats with this recent affectation of starting new sentences with 'So'?

I was always taught you never started witing a new sentence with 'so'.

Is it the new 'innit'? or the new ARQ in reverse?

Anyway, everyone knows its normal to start a sentence with ''Appen'

I was told you shouldn't start a sentence with 'and' yet it is common. I suppose nowadays you make up your own rules.

"So" was an album released by Peter Gabriel in the 1980's. :P :P

Searching the internet, it has offered differing opinion, with the word coming to prominence a couple of years ago.

So Ive really noticed it the last month or so
So I saw an interview with Will I Am about use of technology a few weeks ago and he started every sentence with 'So'
So is the 'So' thing an American import?
Or is it one of these Essex things that I know nothing about?

Was it "sod off to the poor" in the Mail on Sunday?

Three out of every four letters in the Metro start with 'so'. Or maybe it just seems like that. It's usually a good indicator that the rest of the missive will consist of badly-thought-out, intolerant, judgmental gibberish.

And no one can tell you it's wrong.
But some pedantic souls might claim it is, they would also claim you shouldn't be permitted to deliberatley split infintives and that a preposition is a word that you shouldn't end a sentence with.

'Happy Xmas (War is over)' came on the radio before and it made me think of T-Dub getting narked off by a song begining with the word 'so', more than 40 years ago.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.
