Add Sarcasm Smiley To AIM sign now

We feel that there is a striking and blatent need for an AIM smiley icon that can denote sarcasm. As any netizen will tell you, one of the leading causes for online arguments (aka "flame wars") is not knowing whether or not to take someone seriously or in jest. Therefore, the addition of a sarcasm icon is vital for the health and stability of the AIM community.

In other mediums, we might be able to denote sarcasm using a clever sequence of ASCII characters that represented a face when viewed sideways. However, the convenience and effectiveness of the built-in AIM smiley icons has caused these graphical symbols to become the "lingua franca", or established language of online non-verbal communication. To use a differing method to express these non-verbal cues (whether by ASCII or otherwise) would be hazardous at best.

Possible graphics for the sarcasm icon could be a yellow-headed face with his eyes rolling back, or his tongue pushing against his cheek, or making a straight face with one eyebrow raised really high.

Our voice will not be ignored.

    Since AIM is so awesome that many of us use it as our most used form of communication (besides face to face talking), "little" annoyances like this really add up until it gets really irritating to be missing a much-needed expressicon
