:-)   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.
