Using symbols may lead to misinterpretation sometimes. A symbol will have multiple meanings, and what you intended to mean may not be the thing what is comprehended by the other party. Therefore, it may make ambiguity or vagueness in your argument and it's a disadvantage because clarity is essential in argumentation.
