IF you can't parse good understated British humor - what good are you?

Seriously, emojis are somewhat overdone and Adrian's comment was pretty 
much an in-joke for anyone who has ever a) been a nomcom member, b) been 
a candidate, c) been in any leadership position of the IETF, d) been 
around for 3 years or more, e) suffered through similar discussions on 
this list multiple times.   E.g. pretty much everyone.
