You now have this awesome emoticon at your disposal:
However please note that if this is ever used as a direct response to another member it would be treated as if the literal meaning had been expressed in text.

I do get the irony though.

I think that cool new feature might eventually get people in trouble. 馃檭
Indeed.

But before anyone asks me/us why it's even there if it shouldn't be used (against people) then you are asking the wrong person as I have no control over the site features. You'd need to ask @VSadmin

So VS allows it and you required to babysit it's proper or improper use. You have no control over the features of the site. How nice VS doesn't honor the rules. ?

The feature of having emojis does not allow anyone (the site owners or staff) to pick and choose. You either have the standard emoji library or not. VS chose to have the standard emoji library - consistent with all their sites...(again)

Personally I don't find any use for them, but they have become ubiquitous (is that the right word?) and are everywhere. On all moderdern computers etc... even your granny's iPad has the finger icon. You just have to hope she doesn't use it on you.

Anyway they are now there instead of the huge raft of custom image smilies we used to have. And that's that. It is what it is. Take it or leave it.

I miss the old ones. The resurgents of hieroglyphics as communication was by youth Texting. A way to beat the cost of data on the phone bill. Well said. It is what it is. 馃お
