what is your stance on emoticons, and are there ones you favor? What about emojis? I prefer emoticons, for the record, but maybe it’s because I like to kick it old school.
#1: Gchat used to have these super cool emoticons that would move and turn around after you made them. So the less than 3 would rotate and fill into a pink heart. The winky face would wink at you. And so on. (Especially the secret hidden ones like the monkey and rock on and stuff.) Those were the best.
#2: Emojis are silly and sometimes fun. I use them sometimes for ridiculousness. I prefer emoticons like you, as I am what you might call ancient school.

Raise your hand if you used to do CALKULASHUNZ on your red led calculator display to make it say swear words. WHO’S OLD SCHOOL NOW? HUH!? 😹😹😹

Yeah. I learned on slide rule and trig tables—getting a scientific calculator as a graduation present from college was a big deal! It was the HP-45, so not the first model, but still very expensive: “It was introduced in 1973 with an MSRP of $395 (equivalent to $2,178 in 2017).” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HP-45]
I use neither emoticons nor emoji—words and standard punctuation are enough for me.
