                That particular "smiley" icon is so seldom applicable. Glad you found a use for it.

                  But none are as unique as our beloved The Sheriff.
                  To the right of The Sheriff. Isn't everyone?

                        This is the first time I've seen it (or noticed it). It's kind of appalling and hilarious at the same time.

                              Huge in China, apparently.

                              EDIT: OK so I've been thinking about these traffic stats, specifically the popularity in China.

                              I work at an online media company whose reputation rides on separating bogus from legit traffic. There are many ways to do this, but one is to filter out traffic that fits certain criteria. Examples include:

                              -Visits from a large group of very closely related IP addresses
                              -Server calls that are far too frequent for any human to be clicking
                              -Visits from Ukraine

                              What caught my eye was that traffic from some of the notoriously shady geos (China, Poland, Ukraine) have a nearly 1/1 relationship between Hits and Page Views. This means the "visitor" is calling a page and then almost immediately closing it -- before most of the page elements can load. HTML, graphics, css, ads, avatars, etc., each of these is a hit. Why would so many visitors close the page before any of these elements loaded? Not normal human behavior. Can't speak for everyone, but I know I'm here for the zany emoticons.

                              Look at the stats from English-speaking geos like US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, even Germany. Hits/PV ratio is anywhere from 5/1 to 10/1 or more. Not sure what's up with Finland (those guys are crazy) and the French are beyond explanation.

                              Anyway, this leads me to believe the majority of traffic from China and Ukraine, specifically, is bots. They may be calling only the basic HTML looking for email addresses, phone numbers, SSN, addresses, things of that nature ... then immediately closing the page and moving on to the next.

                              Now, I don't bring this up to be a killjoy. There's no avoiding shady traffic altogether, but it's worth investigating. There are many solutions for site security and integrity. And -- hey -- why pay for bots' bandwidth?

                              I don't claim to be an expert in the ways of the Web. Far from it. If I were, I'd be driving Lamborghinis in Monte Carlo instead of tapping away at a keyboard in Pasadena. Would love for someone who knows more than I to explain how I'm wrong.
