When I saw the smilies in the Return of Talking Time posting interface, this is how I felt:

:eek:--->:confused:--->:mad:--->:(

I hate these things so much.

Let's not use them, huh?

I propose confining all smilies to this one thread. Like a prison for emoticons.

I don't think it will happen, but a guy can dream, right?

"There is no emoticon for what I'm feeling"

I've been talking to the emoticons; they are not too crazy about you either.

See, I hate emoticons when they get replaced by stupid pictures or whatever. I don't like the icons. I find some sort of charm to the little ASCII faces. When you put the little pictures in instead, it ruins it and just annoys me.

So, what? You'd rather live without emoticons? Like some kind of roboticon?

The problem is that people all-too-often misinterpret them.
:rolleyes: <-- Having perverted thoughts emoticon
:cool: <-- Feeling like a blind blues singer emoticon
;) <-- Even having a bug in my eye can't spoil my good mood.
:D <-- Facelift.
:( <-- I am purple and this displeases me.

I went to Roboti-con once. But all the metallo-porn fan comics kind of turned me off.

There is some sort of Quiet elegance in : ) and : (

The stupid little images cheapen them.

Turns out you're limited to no more than 10 images per post, including emoticons. This means the greatness of the INTERNET! thread is now impossible.

And that's worth a D:

For truly great levels of annoyance, we'll always have unicode.

(That was the first and last time, I promise.)

(Especially because philliam is going to murder me if he figures out that that's supposed to be Churuya.)

(Oh wait. Forget I said that!)

This was the oldest thread in this subforum that I could see, and I magically resurrect you without adding a damn thing to your content. Take that, intarweb!

I keep seeing this phrase a lot. People must have trouble coping with non-dreams.

I've always despised emoticons that converted text to image. And now I keep seeing banner ads for "the next generation of smileys" that have animation and sound, and it makes me so angry

I like to use emoticons that do not correspond to my actual emotions. They are actually decepticons!
