+seneca Posted September 17, 2003 Share Posted September 17, 2003 Am I the only one that finds the following emoticon rather insulting? “ ”. Whenever I see this symbol, I interpret it as a condescending, sneering, “Oh brother, what an idiot, here we go again” gesture. I cannot recall ever using this little gremlin, and I apologize if I ever have. In normal, polite conversation, I would never actually roll my eyes at the person I am talking to (although I might feel like doing so). I do admit that it is a gesture often given to me by my teenage daughters - but heh - they’re teenage daughters, right!? In view of the newly stated written forum posting policy, I think the “ ” emoticon should be eliminated. Accordingly I have made the following poll to see if there is any support for my position. (I do anticipate that some of you will be compelled to respond with a , so here is my laughter in advance .) I have never in my life learned anything from any man who agreed with me.
