Dude, you ARE the newbie. By some people's standards, I'm a newbie. Jesus, stop giving people a hard time for signing up later that you. I don't think we really need an emoticon that encourages people to insinuate stupidity in other members, we already have image macros for that.hasteroth wrote:But my point is, it likely wouldn't cause problems.

Much different to a facepalm, which would generally imply great disbelieve/shock at how stupid someone is.
Seriously, if you want to go around facepalming at people, just use an image macro. I don't really see the need for it to become a common emote (which in effect would only fuel an already increasing contempt for other users)
