Submission + - "Emoticons" In The Workplace -- :) or :( ?

The Living Fractal writes: "The situation: you work in an office, you're a professional, and you use e-mail extensively to correspond — both internally and externally. What is the accepted practice on emoticon use? Use them sparingly, not at all, or as much as you please? And what about the vast amounts of less-well-known emoticons? Should I tell my whining coworker to "QQ more"? Should I smile with :), :D or :-)? Or is it just best to avoid them altogether? I would be very ^_^ to see your answers."
