Possibly offensive emoticon? Can't Post

There's been some concern that an emoticon I used in this thread here was offensive. Offence was not my intent, and I don't want things to get worse. Can a mod clarify, and if needed, remove it? Thanks.

Hmm... [In reply to] Can't Post

I didn't see anything in your post which stepped over the line, so this is a matter of personal interpretation/misunderstanding. I think all you can do from here is try to clarify what you actually did mean and leave it at that. I've made a comment as well so let's see how it goes.

Oh dear! [In reply to] Can't Post

I've used that one a lot. I intend it to indicate self deprecation. I hope I haven't offended anyone.

No worries. [In reply to] Can't Post

You're using it the way everyone else here also uses it. It was just a misunderstanding and it's been settled now. Smile
