Oh that's odd lol

Anyway the apology was to do with smileys that I use now and again :blush:  Apparently (as told on another forum) my winky smileys are annoying and seen as sarcasm. I never knew that and thought they were just like a wink in any other concept, a sort of friendly aside. Well, just to say that if I have winked at anyone, it's certainly not been meant sarcastically or cockily, I would never do that. Seems that getting older is not always a case of getting wiser :rolleyes:  Hope my other smileys are OK.

That's OK then. I thought the whistling sign was a sign of sarcasm. I will be careful though in future, just in case lol thanks for the thumbs up :D

I am the same Sue, I take them in a friendly way, and don't see a problem with them, maybe on the other forum there just reading too much into it. ;)

Me too, Sue. I always thought the wink smiley was a friendly aside that meant something along the lines of "you know what I mean?".

Not to worry... ;)

Kind Regards

Freddy :D

People's insecurities Sue!,, wink away....... Those people who live to criticise will always find fault.........and discover far too late their facial features will age them!!!!!!!
There are far too many things in life to worry about than 'out of place winks'
