Default Something I've noticed...

...and I'm sure you have too.

It seems there's been some excessive usage of the and smilies. While I don't normally complain about such trivial things, it's constant appearance is a bit of an annoyance.

Is life really that bad?

Yes, it is. If it isn't for you, then that's great. As for me, every time I've used the "" smiley, I've either been crying or felt like I should be.

People get sad from time to time. It probably bothers you subconsciously, because nobody really enjoys seeing others sad.

I noticed it too. I wouldn't say it bothers me, rather, it's a shame that people aren't happy for whatever reason.

Probably the better way to put it. I appreciate your views.

Is it such a chore to use and smilies sometimes though?

Well they should be genuine. It would be a waste if everyone posted ...if they were really upset. Being sad sometimes is normal, but the aim should be on genuine happiness.

Exactly... people ARE sad sometimes...

Doesn't mean we can't feel other ways though

yeah I don't really see the problem with using the smiley's, its hard to express emotion through words unless you can write well and even if you can how could you ever tell if someone was crying? I think its fine to express emotion and I'll be here to help anyone through anything
