Symbols Next to Posts / Posters ?

What do they mean ?

You'll sometimes see a thumbs down, a thumbs up, an angry face that looks kind of like this >  >:( but a tad bit different, etc. I just want to know the meanings of them and why they're there ?

Sorry if there's a threat on this elsewhere, I tried looking but found nothing.  :)

You know, i only ever have used them when starting a thread; but i am trying to add a cheezy smile on this one.

Edited to say it worked

... and to correct the word that changes to "bacon-fed knave" to add  :P I was adding a smiley, no mooning was involved.

To tell you the truth, i only ever noticed it when starting a thread and would have remained oblivious if you hadn't pointed out that you can do it on any post.

...and now i want to play with it, of course.  :)

Don't feel bad, NB.  I didn't know where those came from either  :-[.  Glad I don't have to ask on the "stupid question" thread.

But I wouldn't imagine anyone actually pays much attention to these 'internal' icons.
