I believe emoticons tell a lot about the person who uses them to respond to threads and posts

My thought is they are a measure of courage, intelligence, positivity, imagination and command of the English language.

What do you think?

 

 

 

Absorb the good, ignore the bad, weigh the ugly.

It's about number behavior.

Egos don't count.

    I discarded my own vote so's to be able to see the results without expressing a preference for any of them. 

    However, It's good to see there's one person already who wasn't ashamed to admit (anonymously [see courage, above]) what that preference says about him/her. 

    Run ya about as you'd figure.

            Yeah, I do.

            But you fit right in with the other voters and you're the only one who's admitting to anything.  Courage counts for a lot whatever else might be missing.

                I certainly carry that hope. 

                It's managed to do it enough times in the past to keep me trusting in it.

                And the Powerball draw's only a couple of hours away.

                Good luck on the pick 3 system you're working on.

                    I don't know how this topic got back on the home page but, since I just saw it, I decided to answer you.  The first time, I skipped it because I didn't have a reasonable reply. I still don't, but that doesn't usually stop others from posting on the board, so why be shy?

                    Some emoticons to me say "I'm not totally serious about this post, so don't be angry." They are more colorful versions of the plain text  :)  used to communicate a funny, inoffensive or innocuous remark. I've found that, by simply adding an emoticon to a post or email, the reader often has a different reaction.

                    Emoticons are also tools for those of us who aren't computer savvy and want to "fit in" by animating posts to join the growing cyberworld of geeks. It's a way of saying "look what I can do!" even though it takes little effort. It's like reinforcing a child's self-esteem when he points and says "doggy." Sometimes bigger, more unique emoticons show that the child has advanced to the heuristic level of discovery.

                    On the other hand, emoticons take an extra few seconds (more with dialup) to post, so one or many on a post could also mean "I have extra time on my hands and nothing more to say." Proper selection is critical. For example, saying "Happy Birthday" and sending "the hurl" shows little thought was put into your greeting.

                    That being said, many people don't use words to express their thoughts and feelings in the real world. They use facial expressions, hand & body movement a lot and aren't often long-winded. An emoticon is a way for these people to acknowledge a post without composing a sentence. 

                    Regarding which emoticon has the greatest effect - since they are all "cutesy" it is difficult to rate each one.  I think most emoticons are harmless graphics and, at this point, see no reason to suspect terrorist activity using a lottery forum, although they might be used for covert operations.

                    Example: PukeThis would be to express dislike of Americans.    Conehead could represent American Intelligence. Smash  This could be sending orders to knock out all communications.  Banana This one speaks for itself.ThudA Hezbollah bomber dropping to his knees in thankful prayer.

                      Nancy, that was hysterical! 

                      You've just introduced a whole new level of communication.  This reminds me of the old Highlights magazine.  They always had a story interspersed with little pictures. 

                      You can be in charge of developing the dictionary.  Are there any doggie emoticons available?  We won't be able to talk about the chihuahua racing project without it.  What?  Evil Looking

                            By the way, for those who did not realize it, "Dupe" with the spinning alert hat means "DUPLICATE POST", not some kind of insult.  Someone receiving a "Dupe" Dupe Alert should have researched their topic on the Search page before posting.

                              I'm  Dead today.  Couldn't Bed last night and woke up Puke.  Maybe it was too much Cheers  last night and my neighbor's Party.  Their  Razz woke up Crying and all they did was No No the little child.  The Sun Smiley was shining brightly in my window.  Then I heard  Bang Head  and  Argue .  I thought they were going to Poke each other so I put on my  Cool  and went next door.

                              I said, "Can't  Group Hug  just  Love  ?"
