The "Ian" part was very funny, you're not a Douglas Adams fan I see.

Alright then, I'll call you Iona....

The same half dozen posters repeatedly deposit negative emoticons and yes they do follow other posters around spreading their negativity...

 

I just block everything I post from their view...😊

And how do you do that?

Thin Skinned Member. Sad to me is like a Purple Heart, a breath of fresh air. TVs for Fun, not boosting ones ego.😁.

Part of the problem is that emoticons don't add anything to the subject, who really cares what readers like or don't like when a subject is being discussed, their feelings about what was said don't add anything to the debate. If people want to debate, what's wrong with using the written word?

 

If you think that receiving a sad emoticon is like getting a purple heart you have a peculiar idea of debate, discussion and education. If someone posts something that is truly a very sad post then perhaps a sad emoticon is warranted. But to post a sad emoticon just because someone has just woken up and to blindly post three of them regardless of the material, is in itself very sad.

I would vote to change to either "agree/like or don't agree/dislike" with no sub categories to simplify things...

Never knew it <deleted> folks off so much to use sad and confused. This is going to be fun.

It's akin to that nagging little gnat that flies around your head when you walk through the garden, it's not exactly a fighter bomber type of thing.

Sad and confused emojis look like the little fella is constipated. I vote we keep the like and thank you, substitute the sad and confused with a middle finger salute. 

That gives the impression you've been reading the posts. Careful - you'll let the side down!

Its quiet easy, just use the sad emoticon for things that are sad, a death, an injury, etc

Use the confused emoticon for the latest stupid immigration decision.

 

The sad emoticon isnt there to show disappointment if someone isnt participating in a Thai bashing thread or buying into a "we are the great white benefactor" thread.

I clik Sad for Lefty n PC type opinions because the are Sad Sacks to me.

And therein lays part of the problem, there is no single agreed definition of what the emoticons mean, lots of people have different definitions. I personally would not relate your definitions to the emoticons, it's much better to explain a point of view in English.
