Post Emoticons • Posted: Sun Oct 07, 2007 8:44 pm
For some this is a love/hate relationship with emoticons, we all know what they are, what they are for, little representations of our emotions of course. Now this is a thread for you to say if you see a need for them/if you use them or not, and well, all things emoticon.

I use them, in fact I'm an addict. I can't imagine myself without them, especially ma bud 'XD'

My philosophy is that if you can't use your words to express your emotions, then don't express them at all. I use them only when I cannot convey that I meant something sarcastically or jokingly, but I try to limit that.

All these thanks to the repetitive use of them by Blue, and Atrophine, expanding my love for emoticons ^_^

All right, now that is sheer awesomeness, Crow. I mean...that has to be the greatest thing I've ever seen a computer do.

I like emoticons. It is a nice philosophy you got there Yazstronomo, I'd liek to take it but to acronyms I over use, like LOL! it gets annoying when it becomes like a tag ending.

Well, around 60% of human communication is in fact body language. Emoticons are basically the computer equivalent, though that's not to say 60% of computer messages should be emoticons :P

I had a mighty good laugh at that Crow, and did a bit of sharing with my friends the awesome power of the dancing Kirby (And helpful Commentary).

I find it impossible to go without using emoticons, and you could say most of my messages are like 50% of them maybe, :P and XD and ;) are so very common.

Not too sure. They are regular many places. I'm surprised that most of you haven't ever seen it.
