    But what do the smileys MEAN???

    I don't think the basic BF smileys/emoticons have ever been clearly defined... and in my current state of procrastination, that seems like a terrible oversight.

    -- General contentedness? Warm fuzzies?
    -- Cheekier happiness?
    -- Embarrassment? Melancholy? "Awwwwwwww...."?
    -- Poking fun or actually mocking? A plain-text ": p" seems to be more mocking, but seems to be used here in a more innocent way.

    Of the basic smileys, and seem to me to have the clearest meanings. As for the rest, I demand rigidly defined standards! Just think how many hours are wasted every year by members trying to decode the mysteries of ambiguously used smileys!

    But the beauty of the smilies lies in the mysteries of their ambiguity.. Do not attempt to decode the smiley, that is a road to ruins for many.

    I agree with your observation that is more good natured here than other places I have seen.
    "Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."

    I am always confused by the one.


    While we are on the topic, I need a shrug and a "how you doin?" smilie, given the number of good looking women on foo.
