Any chance of the old, jolly emoticons coming back?
Posts are getting awfully dry and dour without them - mine own included. They managed to express a range of nuanced emotions. I'll admit I don't know how to insert emoticons using the keyboard - but those I see come across as fiddly and charmless, like something that falls out of a fortune cookie. I can't even figure out what they mean sometimes - the one of a monkey? Does that mean, I'm a monkey? Or you're a monkey - an insult? Should that kind of crap Twitter-style emoticon, open to misinterpretation, be available anyway?
I've been on Twitter for a year and it strikes me that if the same emoticons that were available to AJB only a few months ago were available on Twitter it would be a funnier, more forgiving place.
