    It's a farting smiley, mate. It means the person who uses it was holding in some hot gas and thus the pressure moves toward the face resulting in blushing.

    Uhhh. No.

    In its various forms (usually akin to Japanese anime), it's supposed to denote the ultimate cuteness with an eyes closed smile. As opposed to :3 which would be with eyes open.

    but if I were to respond to someone with "haha x3" maybe they'll think I meant to laugh 3 times and think I'm lazy :eek:

    @James - agreed. It's not the most straightforward smiley.

    Hah. Yeah, jokes aside I really couldn't tell you, but I did think that a few years ago. Shelley's work is excellent and she manages to capture legitimate emotions through her work.

    I don't get the chance to do any animated smilies nowadays (such as the times have changed) unlike years ago when I used to design tons of animated smilies which convey that little bit more character. :)
