    It's a well-established GNG technique to ignore completely the argument you are supposedly refuting or, better, to utterly and obtusely misstate it, then post a brief reply that usually amounts to the rhetorical equivalent of "whatEVer."

    Such posts almost universally end with a smiley, and are considered by the poster to have resolved the argument resoundingly in their favor.

    So, which smiley/emoticon makes you want (at least metaphorically) to punch your monitor?

    Whatever. :wavey:

    Whatever. :whistling:

    Whatever. :supergrin:

    Whatever. :upeyes:

    Whatever. :rofl:

    This one pisses me off the most: :upeyes:

    Of course, it angers me even more when done in person.

    This one, because it is usually preceded by the most inept understanding of the topic at hand imaginable. Typically an argument founded completely on emotion and closely held beliefs rather than facts and evidence.
