    It's supposed to trigger that very question.

    I'm the same. I don't like using emoticons as fillers, or to take an edge off a joke, because I'm 10 ways 'til Sunday interpreting if the person on the other end of a screen can catch the sarcasm.

    And, I used to be, all, fuck 'em, don't care....

    ...however....this V, is a good point:

    So, what's the happy medium?

    Now, I'm of the mind-set:

    (my fave TypeC emoticon)

    Least fave: also, just like the stupid gag-worthy pornstar, another one:

    Unless it's a serious advice thread I have my tongue firmly in cheek. Never used to use them but I hate being misunderstood or seeming cruel. So I went over to the dark side and now I really enjoy finding a use for some of the more outlandish ones. I think they are funny. And I liked going against the grain of the bias I had against using them.

    I love subtle humor but the reactions I've gotten at times online, (i.e. people thinking I am being mean to them), has left me more comfortable with others being in on a joke I make through the use of emoticons.

    I usually refer to the emoticon pop-up unless it's something run of the mill.

    Me too! And, finding proper context for execution! I even got to use the "spam" one correctly, once.

    It does water-down the humour, doesn't it? Esp. when one is going for the dry kind....
