I would like so much to try explaining you what is an emoji, but I
definitelly don't have the proper words.
An emoji is, let's say, theorically, the same as an emoticon, except
by some differences.
And, to understand these differences, you can check

Brian, I don't think I even know what an emogee is so I look
forward to an explanation. Probably when the explanation comes, I
might be able to imagine how to use Emogees but, at the moment,
I'm in the dark
so to speak.

Hi folks, as somebody who has been around
text based messages for more years than I care to admit to,
there is one basic truism which still can cause issues.
The statement of facts or giving of advice can appear very
abrupt and direct when it was not meant to be.
Most of us when speaking to each other use inflection and such
like to create the spirit of what is being said and how it is to
Sadly many of us cannot see body language, so even that is no
good in person. However apart from what I still consider as
these new fangled emogees, many do not know what they mean nor
in fact use them.
Thus when you see an apparently abrupt response or interpret
something as a castigation or a reprimand, please go away, have
a drink, think about it and realise it was just the facts being
wrong with anything you said.
Even a simple comment like:
If you go back a day you will see this answered is often seen as
sarcasm, when its really not meant that way. If you cannot go
back or do not know how to view the archive, merely state this
and somebody will help, I'm sure.
OK I'll go back to sleep now!
