    There are certain emoticon that come up, I can't help thinking what the person is thinking.

    :)-Normal, friendly person.
    :(-My cat died
    :confused:-Foreign
    :mad:-Complete irrational anger
    :rolleyes:-Trying to look sarcastic and cool, but actually looks like a douchebag
    :apple:-I think about Apple so much I have to put this emoticon in my posts.

    Oh no! :eek:

    I've been using the roll eyes smiley to indicate skepticism but it really means something else! :eek:

    And I use the :apple: a bunch too.
    Not because I think about Apple products all the time but because I DON'T HAVE TO

    Massive embarrassment smiley time :eek:

    Whenever I see a emoticon I think why isn't there a trollface pic instead of an Apple one.

    Me too. The post may be vague, so the smilie helps.

    Except for posts by the OP, who has a strange vision of what the smilies actually mean.

    It's all in the context of the person using the smilies.

    The :rolleyes: is the most versatile of all. It can be self-depreciating, ironic, rude, funny, thoughtful and even neutral when applied non-accusingly. As I said - context.
