I think the principle to keep in mind is that Ballet Talk for Dancers is not a chat forum - we are a message board where discussion about the study of ballet and first-hand information about our experiences are shared. This message board has a good reputation for sound advice and information. We have an international membership, and for many of our members, English is not our first language. So there's a need for us all to try to express ourselves in clear direct English. Emoticons are useful as a supplement to that, but aren't the way to convey solid information.
The thing that members try not to do is write in "text speak" with words abbreviated, no capital letters or punctuation. It's hard for native English speakers to read, let alone those for whom English is a second or third language
