When the fams have nothing else to do they surround someone and start over using that emote but in reality if they would do that in real life they would just look like clowns lol (not offending the clowns)
lol, clowns have feelings too ya know ^_~
I agree too many people over use that laughing emote. And it looks so sarcastic when they do it, that I wonder if they're really laughing at my joke or just trying to be insulting. Why can't they just use the standard lol or rotfl. Or just send in the rotflcopters if need be.
Ive witnessed a few times where its (Laugh emote) "u mad bro" (Laugh emote) "yeah he mad" Fun to see the semi-thought out things that others minds can think up.
I like the Laugh emote. I agree it's not a great emote - the abruptness of the onset and end CAN make it look like one is being sarcastic. But my friends & I use it when chatting with each other to emphasize the sense of amusement. We are mostly laughing with each other though sometimes at one another in a teasing way. All in good fun.
I'm thinking you took that as me saying "Seeing people using the laugh emote is good fun" When in reality my thoughts on the emote are the opposite. The emote has turned to a tool, Most use it when they run out of material or insults as a way to make the argument progress further without having to prolong it with more text. Basically using the laugh emote IMO in an argument is this ..... "The Child's Way Out" Granted some believe arguments in general are childish, There's a course in most Highschools called Debate...(Arguing Class) I mainly made this thread to see other peoples thoughts on the Olden-day Emote/Modern-Day Harassment Tool. My insights for the update or removal of it are....
1. Fights would most likely not be as harsh or as long due to the help of the emote
2. No more wrong meanings received, Ex.. (Laugh Emote in direction of another user) (Other users response "what you laughing at")
