Dear Pit, I am here to share with you of a condition I have. It's a crippling condition that affects my every day life and it's becoming a real problem.

I ****ing hate the :') smiley. I detest it with every morsel of my being. I don't know what it is about it, but every time I see it on Facebook or Twitter, I (quite ironically) become angry. I sometimes physically flinch when I see it because I really just can't stand it. I know this sounds irrational, and it is, but I really wish people would stop using it

So, what are your opinions on this infernal emoticon?


This thread is brought to you by a few acceptable portrayals of emotion through smilie:

It's a little annoying, especially when you see stuff like 'Waiting for the bus xox :')'.

The :') smiley is actually a representation of TS's mom on completion of the non-steak part of steak and blowjob day.

Yea, I went there.

Hugging Thread; I'm here to help


Oh you wouldn’t want an angel watching over
Surprise, surprise they wouldn’t wannna watch
Another uninnocent, elegant fall
Into the unmagnificent lives of adults


It's Tessa, not Tesse please.

:') to me is a beautiful symbol, representing many aspects of life.

:') as in a tearful smile, when one realizes their past and decides to move on.
:') as in laughter shared with friends to the point of tears.
:') as in crying and celebrating the birth of new life.
:') as in sobbing quietly as you finally pass that log of shit that's been stuck in your colon for 2 days.

Because he's the hero The Pit deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Dark Anus.

I don't like any smilies, but a lot of things people write would be misinterpreted if we stopped using them. And I use them myself, since I can't seem to get out of the habit.

I hope this is just some social experiment to prove the obvious, otherwise

Didnt you see this thread being spammed with :') coming? I mean come on, people on the internet are so repetitive and dull that any idiot could have predicted this.

Those uses are all fine. But when used on social networking for the most menial, disproportionate messages, the usage is what annoys me.

Things that restored my faith in humanity this year: 26
Things that removed all faith in humanity this year: 1,563,745,234 (estimated)

so that's a result of -1,563,745,208 faith points in humanity lost, which is actually up from last year!

Case in point, internet citizens, or netizens, use these kinds more often than not, which are the ones i like to use. People who use the internet but aren't really 'citizens' of the internet use crap like :') or :-) etc..
