Do we need the so called " jerkoff" emoticon ?

It's just a Forum and so much must be taken with a pinch of salt but.........

What do you guys think ?

They don't have one on the BMW forum :smoking:

and They don't have one on the Laverda Forum :angel:

So what purpose does it serve apart from to upset the recipient :jsm:
I would not know... I dont have a BMW or Laverda hahaha!!!

Anyway, just dont take it so serious. If someone gives me that emoticon I would not think much of that :)

what's the relevancy of what the other Forums have?????

and Joe the connotation of the emoticon is different here than in Europe

I see it as mental masturbation, as in idiotic idea

you folks see it as calling someone a wanker, totally different


keep it!

Don't I know? :jsm: I happen to agree with Noel.

To me the "jerkoff" emoticon, as it's officially denoted is just as Noel describes.......something akin to saying, "suuuure" or "whatever......".

Unbeknownst to me, this emoticon is supposedly "universally" known as a major putdown in the UK, and possibly Western Europe describing one as a "wanker".......a term that I've only just recently been exposed to as an extremely insulting inference. I regret the lack of universal understanding amongst fellow forum members, but because some perceive it so insulting, I've quit using it.

Personally, I've never been at all thin skinned over a stupid emoticon. I use them frequently in hopes of adding mostly humor or emphasis to my comments. I do occasionally use them to signify disagreement or disgust when I feel moved.

On the contrary, I'd like to have more different and fresher emoticons to use. Their use is akin to adding salt and/or pepper to a good meal.......nothing to focus on, but a little spice to the conversation.

Well said Randy...

My take on it is ok if it is a joke. The skin can thin tangibly if a person is called a wanker as an affront.

Then you need to have an understanding with that person.As we say "need to have been to school with them."

I totally disagree Col. BMW have inline fours just like MV Agusta :naughty:

and as for the emoticon...Hmmm its like giving bad feedback on eBay..It often looks worse on the giver than the recipient...so absolutely agree in no need for censorship overall...:)

That's because it a given that all BMW drivers/riders are :jerkoff:

:)
Reminds me of that old joke: "The difference between porcupines and BMW drivers? Porcupines have their pricks on the outside......" :laughing:
