Emoticons have made me dumber.
I'm so used to writing =) to convey positive and friendly feeling quickly, or to take the edge off of what might otherwise sound snarky.
When writing to one's professors or associates, however, one simply does not rely on pictures. One writes words that convey a tone in order to effectively communicate through text. When one has become accustomed to grinning like a fool with = and ) or even D, one might suddenly realize that one has misplaced a few IQ points when one attempts to convey a tone without the crutch of a smiley.
