    Could anyone explain it to me? Hitler? Saying what?

    Your location says Israel, so I'm going to guess the gesture may not exist, or doesn't mean the same thing as it does here. The gesture itself is basically saying "F@#$ You". Though I'm not entirely certain, I always took the Hitler face to be a reference to Godwin's Law. I'm sure no offense is intended, though I can see why it might be at least a little off-putting for you.

    I look at it the way Ronald does, something along the lines of "F**k you, speech Nazi" or words to that effect.

    However, I can also see why you take offense to it, and we're going to have to figure something out as mods as far as what to do about the smiley. To be honest with you, I've never even seen that one before.
    If I've helped you out in any way, please pay it forward. My wife and I are walking for Autism Speaks. Please donate, and thanks.

    If someone helped you out, be sure to "Like" their post and/or help them in kind. The "Like" link is on the bottom right of each post, beside the "Share" link.
