To think MN would be better off without that stupid quirked eyebrow face

For want of a better title and semi 'lighthearted' (boak). AIBU to be totally hmm at hmm? It's just so bloody snarky seeming. I see it all the time on threads where posters can't be bothered to actually articulate their problem with the poster / thread so just leave that passive aggressive hmm instead. I'm sure it does have its place but it just seems so over-used at the moment and seems to add a confrontational edge to threads where that's just not needed.

That's it really! Fully expecting all the inevitable hmm faces in reply... grin

I really like it and wish I could use it elsewhere.
I do that face in real life when someone says/does something stupid.

It's my actual face when I read a lot of the stuff about lately hmm

I like it too, I'm still holding out for an eyeroll face, but raised eyebrow will do in the meantime.

Haha - maybe I just have quirked eyebrow envy as I can't do it in real life...

JenLindleyShitMom Wed 19-Oct-16 09:34:49

YABU! That face is the best thing about MN! grin

EdmundCleverClogs Wed 19-Oct-16 09:35:15

It's better than a full on eye-roll!

HTH smile <<wayyyy more PA IMHO

YANBU - Using that is how people try to shut down any debate on here

Sandsnake Wed 19-Oct-16 09:36:59

Oh no, I've been HTH'd, the definite nuclear option...!

I love thehmm face it's eye rolling though IMO.

It's the best emoticon on here! I find myself needing to use it in emails all the time hmm

SleepFreeZone Wed 19-Oct-16 09:40:44

It's only because of the way it is used. I quite like the word cunt used on here to describe an absolute arsehole or something that's gone spectacularly wrong. But if someone hollered CUNT at me in the street I would be OUTRAGED 🙊

So don't blame the hmm blame the people man ✌️

If a hmm face stops you debating you should maybe grow a thicker skin,

Thanks, very helpful advice hmm

wtf ? an emoticon is causing this reaction ?? does noone have more important thinks to think about anymore than their online fuckoff book status and emoticons ??? i'm totally confused now.

It's one of those emoticons where it's really annoying if it's used against you and really satisfying to use against someone else.
