I hate emoticons

...and someone thinks we should tax the people who use them. Choice quote:


While we're at it, let's tax emoticons, too. After all, we're decades into the Internet age, and emoticons, like the ;-) or the :-( punctuating so many thoughts in our e-mail, do not communicate anything except "I'm too lazy to find another way to tell you that I'm trying to be funny." As we say to small children, Use Your Words.

(with thanks to reader "HK," who passed me the above article and quote)
