People Who Put Roll-Eyes Smilies On All Their Posts

55 posts in this topic

Curious to know if I'm the only person irritated by this.
To me, it makes them come across as smug and ultimately very stupid.
Or am I just bad-tempered today?

:rolleyes:

If anyone who does it answers, perhaps knowing why you do it might help.... Edited by swissy_fit

Exactly.
Thankyou for that link, I think I'm going to post it on all my replies to people who use that smilie all the time.
It uses long words though....

I think it's used to express non-specific "here we go again" - not particularly offensive, IMO.

I find <_< to be more grating, as favoured by those who think you have an agenda when the sad truth is you're just killing time or yanking their chain.

I use :blink: :unsure: :o :lol: and :P

Nothing wrong with emoticons in moderation, it's friendly. MrPin ends every sentence with an explanation mark! [i]That's [/i]nutty.

Smileys are like sarcasm. Crutches for the inerudite; for those who cannot be bothered to communicate clearly in a written form and require pictograms to clarify meaning - and for the obtuse, who cannot get by without a cartoon to explain the words....

no. winkie was merely pointing out that s/he loves a band called 'you to', which is quite famous round these parts.

you may wonder why s/he chose to express this in a reply to your considered post.

this was because it's something that s/he has been wanting to declare to the world for some time and finally got round to doing at that particular moment in time.

well done winkie!!! bravo!

Believe it or not, it wasn't Bruce I had in mind, as I skim his posts anyway I'd stopped noticing.

it's possible to take this place too seriously.
like worrying about post-counts
might be a sign for you to knock forums on the head for a while.
