Question What does this smilie mean?


I'm curious because I like this particular smilie and I've used it a couple of times. I think it's not quite as bad as I remember using it once in the context of using a spoiler tag and I thought I was inferring a little "look if you dare" sentiment. I ask what means though because I happened to notice today when I put my mouse cursor over and it popped up as pervert Suffice it to say that I did not want my statement to come off as perverted or that my spoilers contained perverse content.

Err. What do you mean by "popped up as pervert"? And seriously, does this smilie looks to you like something 'perverse'? Firstly it's called :brow: and I also doubt anybody would put a post in a 'perverted' context just because of that smilie. Hm. Plus perversion itself is nothing negative, but that's another story..

Huh? I talk too much?? Yeah, I know, it's kinda perverse.

If you mouseover the smilie... the word "pervert" appears in a popup

Doesn't matter what VBcode text you use to get it, some smilies have 'different' mouseover popup descriptions

Yeah, that's what I'm asking. Do people think this smilie really means pervert? I know I didn't. I guess it would depend on the context one used it in.

Really, this isn't a big deal. I just won't use this smilie (even though I like it better than ) but I just didn't think it was meant to connote perversion.

I thought he kind of looked like a little deviant when I uploaded him so I slapped the pervert on to there. It's only what I was thinking of when I uploaded the lil' guy. That's just a sampling of the macabre way my brain works, I guess. I've used him for plenty of things besides the perverse though.

Ah. You again. I should've known .. ^^;; However, sounds like a complete rational and reasonable explanation for the 'pervert' to me. *nods*

Uuuh. Uh-Oh. Now look at this!! WHO THE HECK THREW THE POOR PERVERT POPUP THING INTO THIS HANDMADE(TM) FIRE???

>_>;
<_<;

There. *points to the right* He did it.

*runs to the left*

I'll throw in my two cents: green is a horny color.

I thought green was more of an empathetic reviving color, "earthly" (or envy/greed)
while red was.. "inflated libido" or stimulation, "stronger emotions"
