When I said: "Why so serious?" I meant, why is no one else ever using emoticons here like and . Ever since I joined hubpages, I was the only one who used those emoticons. It's so rare to see them in the comments. It's like everyone's so serious. Hehe.
I want to use one emotion your question is really funny and yes it poses a very good issue-Why we are so serious? I guess our hectic work schedule has made us like that. Whatever would be the reason, I promise you I will try to inject some humor in my future writeup
I want MORE emoticons. I'm a multifaceted person. Do I smile with teeth? Do I frown sometimes? Yes, I do! But sometimes I give the thumbs up! Sometimes I put on a brave face! Where's the emoticon for that?! WHERE'S THE BRAVE FACE EMOTICON, CHEEKY KID?!!!
I use them all the time in the forums, Cheeky Kid, but not in comments. I don't think you can in comments. I will occasionally use this :-) in comments but I do think comments attached to someone's work should look more professional. (my favorite emoticon)
I'm not taking any names. I find it annoying at times. Our thoughts and messages can be given effectively without the use of smileys or emoticons.Your opinion and thoughts why you do or don't use them?
