The majority of the times I've seen it used, it's used as merely a way of agreeing with what someone else has said.


Why don't we get rid of all of similies, since someone will be bound to not like a certain one of them eventually? Heck, why not ban the posting of images lest someone gets their shorts in a bunch over one?  sarcastic

Don't see any need for any of the smileys to be removed, if anything they need updating, but thats probably something Johan will look at when everything else ongoing with the website is finished.

If someone posts just that smily in response to a post, you can probably suggest deletion just for it being a low quality post.

Don't worry, I've just hosted it myself so that I can still use it if it is removed.  Wink

To answer the above question...

No.
