    I'm a fan...

    As a general rule, I don't care much for smileys. I have a special fondness for the SP shifty smiley though. It's an expressive little face. Highly emotive; an emoticon if you will!

    So, I was wondering, what is your favourite thing here?
    I like the smiley of course but I also appreciate both the breadth and quality of coverage/resources presented.

    And the smiley. Did I mention that?

    Haha, great thread.

    I am not a big smiley person either - I use and to take the sting out of things, but that's it.

    I do quite like this one though There is something precocious about it.

    And anyone that has been around here for a while knows that I have a special hate for this one

    I like this - typically my sarcastic mood!

    I love using smilies but I do have a problem because I really over use them (i like that one too)

    - that's another favourite - I used to see Datura use that one all the time it's cute!

    I've checked the qualities of many other shifty smileys. Kind of mean, untrustworthy little guys.

    The SP one can say:
    "Uh; yes? I gotta go"
    "WTF are you talking about, oh crazy one?"
    "I'm not serious...except when I'm serious"
    "Did I say that out loud? My bad."

    instead of
    "Give me your wallet and I won't hurt you"

    Okay, the weee is pretty damn sweet.

    All the cool smileys are secret.

    It's like memorizing DOS commands! SP should have a secret page where all the cool smileys are laid out for us.

    SP'd need, of course, to implement a humiliating and byzantine hazing ritual to get the address of the page. Rife with subjugation, abject cruelty and senseless brutality.

    I mean
    "That.is.a.terrible.idea...?"
