    Ok, I'll keep this brief, if someone doesn't understand, then ask:

    Some few months ago, I suggested to TF that the :o would be replaced with the :blush: -smiley,
    and :o -smiley would be eliminated. IIRC, Starlifter and few agreed with this one,
    and TF said he'll change it. So, what's the...?

    I say we keep them. Sometimes you make a mistake :o and sometimes you blush about things. :blush:

    Well, maybe we should just have one. But I like :blush: better.

    To me, both smilies denote slightly different expressions..... So I say we shld keep them both. Besides, the more the merrier. :)

    To me, :O should still be :o.

    If I'm "embarassed" I can type : blush : :blush:

    The real problem is, :o.

    What the dell is that? I always have wondered, what emotion it is
    when you're mouth is round and you're red. Blowjob?

    :lol:

    Embarassment- red for being embarassed, and a round mouth for, er, well embarassment. Kind of like saying "oh".

    I think each smiley meant embarassment of a slightly different nature. But then of course, it's all up to individual intepretation. ;) Or somewhat lack of...

    We should keep both. You don't blush every time you feel embarassed, do you? :blush:

    This one is certainly not on top of my priority list. :o

    How on earth the round mouth does stand for embarrassment?

    Well... My new suggestion is that we place :o for :o, as usual, but replace :blush: with :O,
    for the smiley :blush: .

    Of course not, but guys like me who have way too much time on their hands,
    afford to be perfeonisticals (sp?). :D

    *said in a whispered game-show host voice*

    The word is "perfectionist"


    On topic, I don't think there is an issue here. Having both is fine, and TF shouldn't worry about this because he has more important things to do.

    Edited for topicality

    In a similar manner to :o, when the heck would you ever use the smily? It has comedy value, I agree, but there is no emotion whatsoever being expressed here.

    I prefer the :blush: over the :o .

    Off-topic: I'm impressed that you can get smilies to appear in a poll! I didn't think that was possible.

    I disagree; it would be extremely useful to try to move a succession or maybe a PBEM game along. Whenever it appears to be dying (no one playing), the 'poking to if see if dead' smiley will be perfect for it! :D
