Re: Seriously... do people not appreciate emoticons, pictures and colors in a post?

I find your posts to be quite lengthy and very colorful. If people do not like your posts, they are free to simply skip past them or put you on ignore.

You are free to express yourself however you want. Use all the words, colors and emoticons that make you feel like you have gotten your point across.

I know right, I was amazed when I saw one for first time in her posts (and also got a good laugh), that is why I think she should remain loyal to her style.

As for if I'm viewing on my phone, I don't see images unless I click on them... umm... hello utility belt guy! I don't use the app though so maybe that's the difference?

Dear HB

It's driving me nuts.

Can I ask, who is the actress, from which film is she, in your avatar?

I could swear it looks a bit like a character out of bewitched.

Your words did paint an idiot judgement ...but that is your prerogative....that's how you view it.

Just saying...I am not new to computing.. even as a 14 yr old teen girl.. I was never "frivolous" in much of anything in my life ...least not money or how it was spent.... I do put a lot of careful thought into my posts... Even those who despise my layout, and disagree with my views....would likely vouch for this.....

So if I got a little carried away collecting various emoticons ... like to throw a google image Quote or pic in once in a while.. yeah, maybe it's a stupid pastime, I'll give you that...but not all books can be judged by their covers, I guess is what I am trying to say...
As a rule I would never comment on the structure of someones post or their spelling. You happened to ask a direct question about one of my pet peeves. Perhaps I mistakenly thought you were actually looking for alternative perspectives instead of some anonymous reaffirmation. In my world I would be laughed at for using an emoticon of any sort. It's not something Engineers do. I suspect that many people here would be massively offended by the hardcore comments and perspectives of my colleagues, but I happen to respect their bluntness. I have thicker skin then most and often forget many people have their identities wrapped up in their internet personas. That is something I'll never understand because when you are anonymous there really is nothing at stake and therefore it's just a game. I like to be challenged to the point I must reexamine my thoughts and statements. In this case I could have definitely used some softer language, but in reality I had no business injecting my world into yours. Lesson learned.

Where do you work that is so humorless?


I'm an engineering manager, I spend most of my time dealing with engineers or other engineering managers. I would never communicate with a vendor, customer or senior manager that way. But among colleges we use them all the time, particularly on IM.

I don't mind bluntness as much as others do, it does JOLT me however..and I will think under my breath "Hot damn is he a S O B... who pi$$ed in his or her cheerios this morning"!....but hey, that's honest, right ......(just as you lashed out at MEM, it's human nature to be offended & want to respond to the injustice said about us)....

But really...I don't run from it, put up a barrier or ignore someone (have never used that feature here nor plan to)... though I will remind myself what another finds obnoxious ...and do my best to stay out of their way.

I don't expect everyone in this world to be kind....and some of us NEED jolted and told what for ...There is a place for Constructive criticism...ever since I read this scripture in Proverbs a long long time ago... I understand it's value...



Though I feel this can be done in a manner that is helpful and not demeaning, or crushing ...another passage speaks on what we say as being like "a tree of life"...or crushing the spirit.. would anyone disagree ?? One doesn't have to be religious to understand this.. It's just something to strive for in our speech...Hey, I miss it sometimes too... believe me.

I like posting here, I had a life before I landed here and I'll have one when I move on to other things...I may not have a career..but we have a large family...I'd give my right arm for my kids...they keep us hopping... we have good friends..I am needed and loved...isn't this what we all want in life?

None of my friends in real life get into forums, they all Play games online.... now I personally think that is BORING BORING BORING...I would put a throwing up emoticon here ...but since I am replying to YOU Enginerd, I will control that urge.....so whatever...we all like what we like... so no sense me trying to apologize for my enjoying posting on a forum...it is what it is.

At least plenty others seem to enjoy it too!
