Possible Duplicates:
Rep Repo Man is mocking us!
The Stack Overflow Conspiracy - don’t tell Jeff I’m on to him.

I was looking at my reputation report (nice feature by the way!).

It appears to be fairly clear and obvious, especially with the FAQ/legend kindly provided by Jeff.

However, I am somewhat unclear about a minor detail. The last line of my report shows:

** total rep 9434 :)

Now I'm sitting there trying to imagine what ":)" means - somehow I suspect that the obvious explanation (it's a smiley face because Jeff just felt like putting it there) is wrong.

Am I just being paranoid or overthinking it?

It's the SO team taunting you and your new lower rep levels. – Ether Mar 24 '10 at 15:22
