funny? Don't see anything funny here. Ah people don't know when it's appropriate and when it's inappropriate to send an emoticon. Yes, these are called emoticons, not smiley faces or something other.

I usually wait until the person I'm chatting with uses smileys too, then I chime in. The friendly ":)" can go a long way of conveying the right intent

This response is uncalled for, but I also think smileys do not belong in formal conversations. Its not only about professionalism, but also about class. E.g. you do not wear slippers to the casino.
