It's become something of a meme for me to express my sadness in chat with messages that consist solely of ":(".

How much of a meme? I don't know, because it won't let me search messages for ":(". Even the RSS feed shares my dismay.

Please let me search for all-punctuation messages.

Also, the RSS link gives the "Oops! Something Bad Happened!" page.

Using ":(" messages to express sadness...that's quite the meme you've come up with – Michael Mrozek Feb 1 '12 at 2:54
@MichaelMrozek Ok, so it's more of a meme for Wipqozn to revel in my sadness. – John Feb 1 '12 at 2:57
Wha??? That... That looks like a guy frowning, if you turn your head sideways! Whoa! See, this is why I love memes. People are coming up with new and cute ways to interact over the innernets all the time. Awesome meme, great job! – Won't Feb 1 '12 at 15:37
Laugh out loud! Next you will come up with acronyms for common phrases that nobody else has thought to shorten yet! Just Kidding! Hope This Helps! Away From Keyboard! – JNK Feb 2 '12 at 15:55
@JNK Hey, I am not one of the people who stars this stuff. I don't make the memes. – John Feb 2 '12 at 17:02
