Hear, hear, Mr. Schaefer!  Blast those "ridiculous emoticannes."
 
From the CHICAGO MANUAL: "Skillfully prepared for, an ironic meaning seldom
eludes the reader even though quotation marks [or smilies] are not used"
(6.68).   An occasional deft touch--or moment of restraint--are preferable to
wanton encryption.  In Louis B Mayer's words, include me out.
 
P.S.
I'm slowly getting the knack of the Waterman I received last year as a gift.
Writing was never so delicious!

In reply to Michael Sharpston's comment on the thin transmission of masques, I
wonder whether we face thinness or blessed perspective.  The James Joyce
industry continues full-speed ahead despite the large amount of information we
have on Joyce and his world.  In dealing with Jonson, do we lack
information--or disinformation?  In other words, because we know less, can we
know more?
