We're frequently being reminded that MN is a 'forum for support' and there is nothing supportive about this face hmm

They don't mean you should be mindlessly supportive of everything you read.

There's nothing supportive about 99% of the site.

I think it's needed sometimes. There's no need to be supportive if someone is being a total dick.

Not all threads are about asking for suppirt though, are they?

aibu is not about support- often people are wrong and making up stories

many of the other sections are for support

Ok so it's not just unsupportive - it's the most annoying face I've ever seen and makes me want to punch something.

But it's my favourite face! It's good for so many things.

Punching someone isn't supportive.

What's happened now?

Not everyone directs their hmmat other members though, often it's a part of the point you're trying to make or the story you are relating, i.e. My MIL said this... hmm
I find it very useful and miss it in regular emoticons tbh.

hmm is my all-time favourite emoji and I'm sad my phone doesn't do it. It is perfect for so many occasions.

BadTasteFlump Thu 25-May-17 20:29:39

I said punching something, not someone hmm

Sionella Thu 25-May-17 20:29:55

YABU. I love it. Wish I had it on my phone!! hmm

Punching something is not supportive.

In fact if you punch away the supports of something like a seaside pier it woudl collaps.
