Should smilies be used?

I never use smilies. In fact I hate the smug little fuckers. Adding a smiley to a joke is like putting on a red nose and going "WAKKA, WAKKA, WAKKA!!". It's slappable.

Am I laying myself open to misinterpretation/evil?

There's a time and a place for smilies. Your posts are neither.

Yes Laz. But some people like simple, bright and shiny things. And that's smilies, in the electronic text world.

What in hell are you doing here?
Don't you have better things to do like looking for a woman that has a great sense of humor, athletic prowess and red hair?
There are some things that you have to do by yourself.
Now get out there boy and circulate.
You ain't gun'na find anyone like that here.
Sheeeeeeeeesh.

Everytime I post something on that incredibly nerdy civ site without using a smilie, they think that I'm serious.

So I like to add smilies that make no sense with my post.

I've seen this complaint about you in the past, Laz.

Sometimes dry humor is lost on people without some smiley.

I use them on poly because of all the whiny tight asses who bitch about every little thing, but for real humor they aern't needed.

What was this thread about again?

I'm not picky. I just want a natural redhead with a great sence of humor. She doesn't have to be athletic.
