Ha ha, I think Jack is WELL aware.

Actually, I'm not. That smilie was labeled "okay." If it means anything else to others, I hope they will understand that, being a U.S. American, that was the intended meaning. I was looking for a good "thumbs up" smilie and couldn't find one I liked. \:\(

I'd ask for an explanation of the other meaning(s), but I'm afraid of the answer(s) I'd get.

That's not a particularly nice gesture in a lot of parts of Europe.

Another gesture that mediterraneans don't like is our open hand salute for "hi" or "bye".

Actually the 'thumbs up' is pretty offensive too in some regions.
it basically means "upyours". jejeje
Dont remember excatly where or what regions... posibly eastern europe and/or middle east

I cant recall what the other meanings were. Although I do remember there were several and most of them were negative/offensive. I took an international business course at college where we talk about body-language and gestures and their meaning on different places. It was a loong time ago.

Since that's how I meant it, I'm relieved. \:\)

Well, since I'm neither in Europe, nor European, I can only hope that any Europeans coming across my post, understanding that no one can learn the meaning of every gesture and phrase in every culture, would take into account my intent. I know that if someone gave me the middle finger salute, and I learned that in their culture it meant "jeez, you are a wonderful person," I would not be offended in the least. I do not expect people from other parts of the world to be familiar with all our cultural symbolism. I don't think they should expect me to be familiar with everyone else's.
