The Campaign for Real Conversation

2 Conversations

Every time you use a smiley, it means: "Either I am so illiterate that I am unable to communicate this particular aspect/element of my message using mere words, or I am merely too lazy to do so."

Every time you use three or more smileys, it means: "I really have nothing to say here at all, but I want to make some kind of noise, so I'm going to throw a bunch of little pictures at you that you've already seen many times before."

Every time you badger the h2g2 team for a new smiley, it means: "Please give me another brightly-coloured cudgel with which to bludgeon the subtle art of communication to death."

Every single time.

Please bear this in mind and converse responsibly. Thank you.
