And it could put across the wrong message

Great Thread! [rep]

Also, a bunch of people capitalize their letters for no reason. Example:


SO, WHAT ARE WE TALKING ABOUT?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?


There is no reason for this, either. It's okay to capitalize when you are really excited, but don't do it for no reason.


Thanks for viewing.
great post! I know, let me tell you some people can go wild!! Especially with smilies. Your right
One or two is great! I actually like posts to have some smilies, but 7 and Up is just to many!
I also agree with backflip15!

SOmetimes, it gets too carried away.

I agree. I lot of people like to try all the smilies on your first day. I did, but ya that was a long time ago.
I believe all Caps is not aloud. Because it appears that the person is "screaming" or "mad". But it's okay if hey say like "Sorry, my caps key was on."

XOXO

I actually love seeing smilies! Spread the joy! Why be glum when you can be happy?
They add much needed emphasis and pep to a plain boring post.... as long as they aren't a ton of smilies that are furiously "" head bashing to show outrage over a post.

but that just my opinion

Sometimes, they use them a bit too much, though.

I used to have a friend and whenever she would email me she would go "Hey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!What's up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!You will never guess who I saw at this place. Bob John!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Have you seen him lately?"

I really don't know a Bob John, it was just a random name. And she is also a member here, and she PM me a few months ago. Here-

I'm not trying to be rude, but it is so annoying when she does that! I blocked out names of people and stuff so don't worry. And I know this person in real life.

PS- I took out some smiles because there was 53 in there! I am glad WI has that 20 pictures rule.

True! I remember when I was new... I would use so many smileys. I think they are under-used, actually. 10 or 20 is too much I agree but...
