It's weird. At first, I'd use things like "lol" on occasion. Now I find it greatly annoying (at least in certain discussions).

I think you should include the < sign.

It makes anything look like... eyebrows.

What do I mean by eyebrows?

Look:

:3 + < = <:3

Cat with eyebrows.

With personality.

That is a charming cat.

If I could find that little horizontal squiggly line on my keyboard, it'd go before the : and thus giving us a chicken emoticon. No idea what to use it for, but tis funny.

Also, I find I can't simply go SMH: I have to go all Samuel L Jackson and say SMMFH (Shakin' Mah Mutha F***ing Head!)
