I use way too many emotes. :dummy:

But you know, I think its more in the overall tone and context.


I feel like emotes make it slightly more playful, but not always.

Oh, I agree there! It's why I use fewer when having a serious conversation. :iconrobotwalkplz:

I generally assume it is best to ask if you think the tone was snippety or cannot tell their tone. Since so much can be lost in translation, lost in type and lost in grammar... ;P I am in such the habit of emoting, almost impossible to not.... Oh, and I need an example, bitch! :rage:

Right?!

Haha, I don't like doing it too much but hell, I have to push facial expressions in reality too.

Eh, the only one I've got right now is something I said.

I'm fairly expressive, I've had deaf friends and have learned to exaggerate some times. Body gestures and facial expressions in deaf humor... I always thought it was so cute when Pat & Rebecca (she was deaf) would argue and she would close her eyes and sign "I can't hear you!", it would make him so mad. And she said she hated the dumb expressions he would make. I'll give her that, he made very dumb faces. Amazingly enough, more than a decade later, they are still a couple.

I just assume they're not the emoticony type, and I won't put lots of plz emoticons in my reply to them. ;)

It does make me think that they are 'serious' but serious doesn't mean grumpy or mean to me, just that they're not joking. I tend to try not to assume people's tone on here, cos it's so hard to judge.

Depends on how they phrase the words, I think... I don't know. There is something in between it all that suggests a certain type of tone, but.. that's just me. :O_o:

Nah, I think it's pretty common ;p

I don't assume because people assume about me and it's annoying, but I had to learn not to.

If I am confused by a message, then I'll try to read it from a few different angles to see whether they're being sarcastic, or serious or.. yeah.

Sometimes I get it wrong, but I think it's pretty understandable here? :shrug:

What do they mostly assume about you?

I just ask. Whatever, I'm not a genius.

They assume sarcasm or 'meanness'...I am blunt, but really, do you have to take compliments with a pillar of salt :ohnoes:

People shouldn't expect others to be, though I guess it's not an insult if you're held to be one? :O_o:

Ah, I see. :hmm:

I never thought you were like that, but then that's just me.

Even the cake could not deter them. :(
