[Roll Eyes] I don't have to say how much contempt I have for what you just said, or give reasons why I think it is wrong, I can just put this little icon up and everyone knows instantly that I think you are talking out of your ass. [Roll Eyes]

This after all a discussion board, and this --> [Roll Eyes] doesn't encourage discussion, it just shows disdain and condemnation.

I hate rolly eyes.

In the Ornery forum, what never fails to piss me off is when someone includes the "forehead-slapping" icon in his reply to me.

If someone gives you this [Roll Eyes]

you can respond with this [Confused] they may feel guilty?

Sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo hilarious, how ever did you come up with that gut-bustingly witty comment Geraine? I mean seriously, you must have a staff of writers to come up with a gem like that, you take my breath away! [Wink]

Given the originality and cleverness, I'm assuming he rented out the writing staff at the Tonight Show.

You're right, that is MUCH more conducive to discussion, and not NEARLY as disdainful!

(I actually kinda hate the rolly eye emoticon. I sometimes see people use it on people I genuinely think are being silly, but I never think it improves the quality of the conversations, and the few times I've had it used on me I wanted to punch someone through the internet)

I hate the winky emoticon. I can show contempt for what you just said, give reasons for why I think it is wrong, but then I can just put this little icon up and everyone instantly knows it's a joke and that any response is unnecessary since I already showed I was kidding. [Wink]

I was commenting on your words, not the alternate emoticon you used.

I note that you have no response to my actual point.

There should be a *yeah but still* emoticons on hatrack. It would cut conversations by 80%.

Had you a decent point, I might have commented. As it is, your "point" is nitpicky and not applicable as the "comment" that I was responding to hardly counts as discussion AND my (sarcastically humorous) comment helped generate further comments (such as your own), where as if I had simply put up a rolleye emoticon, we would not be having this discussion right now.

I know rolleyes is your fave, as you use it all the time, but your contempt for the people here just makes me think less of you, and what you have to say. Feel free to keep using it, as I doubt my opinion matters much to you at all. [Smile]

Just [Laugh] [Roll Eyes] right back at 'em. Better'n gettin' all [Mad] , and more effective than [No No] . Then again, there's the

It's not all the people here. Most days it's not even most.

And this is just hilarious, given the context:
