If words can't express what you are feeling, try these commonly used symbolic gestures to express yourself:

:-)   Basic smiley, used with a sarcastic or joking statement since we can't hear voice inflection over e-mail.

;-)   Winky smiley. User just made a flirtatious and/or sarcastic remark. More of a "don't hit me for what I just said" smiley.

:-(   Frowning smiley. User did not like that last statement or is upset or depressed about something.

:-I   Indifferent smiley. Better than a :-( but not quite as good as a :-)

:->   User just made a really biting sarcastic remark. Worse than a ;-)
