Am thinking, gonna adopt a messaging style sans emoji. Express via the rich heritage of human animal lang sans the debilitating faak of the pol ridden tracking plush tech of the weabo jargon emoji faak of the ignoramuses n technoheads.

though, to be sure, online instant messaging is a new way of human communication beginning in the year of our lord 1980s, and in this channel of expression, it seems to me, traditional writing system n style is lacking, and emoji feels a void.

to wit, a 😘 onscreen at the right moment, is more effective implicit than any explicit verbiage.
