I stand corrected VoG™. I never use them myself, same as textspeak it confuses me. Thinking about it smileys are the little coloured symbols aren't they.

I was being facetious.

They don't turn into coloured symbols on here but they do on some forums.

I think that they can be useful but not when used to excess. We've been told before that the coloured symbols will not be enabled on this forum. Fair enough.

Thats a shame....can just imagine all those bouncy, grinning, winking round yellow circles on here ha ha

Shame?

One of the biggest delights of this forum is the lack of bouncing emoticons and avatars.
