Smileys as punctuation?

p.s. why does {'L', 'O', 'L'} automagically turn into a smiley face? You are creative, sir Matthew.

It doesn't turn into, "I'm dumb!" anymore?

The other way was funnier though. >:) Also, why has the evil grin smiley that somebody created a couple of years ago not been adopted? It's just so perfectly awesome.

Err, is it random?

I've come to like >:-E~~~ as a good smiley for many rage-ful situations.

I belive l o l (;D) and R O F L (;D) are different.

We really need the evil grin smiley. It's too convenient for some situations.

Sorry, just gotta try this random smiley stuff, ;D(lol), ;D(rofl). Come on, these should be replaced by I'm dumb! (I fell for that one in my first posts).

Also, I've seen in another forum "plz" replaced by "Plz bitch, slap me!".


BTW a true grammar Nazi doesn't use smiley's.
