Yes, I see the "> <" as eye scrunched up, like when someone is laughing so hard their eyes are closed.It's simultaneously a really happy expression and a vulnerable one.</blockquote>It's really weird that everyone interprets this emoticon differently...I also see it as someone laughing really hard with their eyes scrunched up...but it doesn't look vulnerable or cruel to me at all...I really liked it because I thought it was a good response for when you think something is super funny, but now that I know people see negative emotions in it, I'm definitely not going to use it.James and Co., awesome job on the 2.3 update! Everything looks great! Thank you all for your hard work!
For me the > < laughter reminds me of South Park. I don't get a vulnerable vibe. But everyone reads it differently.Typical humans, though, that I get so hung up about this issue instead of expressing gratitude to James and the S-G team for keeping this site open for over a decade. It's the only "Vanilla"-site I use but I'm often impressed by it, thank you.Btw, anyone have any idea about the blockquote thing?
