Which one of the following best describes your smiley usage?
- I have never used a smiley in my life! I’m a total abstainer.
- I admit that I once used smileys, but I’ve been clean for more than a year.
- I occasionally use smileys, but no more than once every ten posts. Honest!
- Sure, I use smileys once every post of two, but I’ve got it under control.
- I’m a heavy smiley user. I use them in almost every post. But hey, it’s not like I’m on crack or something!
- I’m a binge smiley-er. I sometimes post a row of three or four of the same smiley.
- You only live once! Sex, drugs and smileys, I say! My typical post has no words, only smileys.
I have never used a smiley. I’m not talking about the fancy ones with horns and stuff, but any smiley at all. Am I weird? Am I alone? Have I missed out an important ritual leading to Internet maturity? Or have I saved myself a life of sneaking smileys into messages while my boss isn’t looking?
