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....

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....
