The Unofficial Smilie Dictionary

:-)   Your basic smilie. This smilie is used to inflect a
      sarcastic or joking statement since we can't hear
      voice inflection over Unix.
;-)   Winky smilie. User just made a flirtatious and/or
      sarcastic remark. More of a "don't hit me for
      what I just said" smilie.
:-(   Frowning smilie. User did not like that last
      statement or is upset or depressed about something.
:-I   Indifferent smilie. Better than a Frowning smilie
      but not quite as good as a happy smilie
:->   User just made a really biting sarcastic remark.
      Worse than a :-).
>:->  User just made a really devilish remark.
>;->  Winky and devil combined. A very lewd remark
      was just made.
