You mean the document that says, " It has become conventional to
use the sequence ":-)", which (on most output devices) resembles a
rotated "smiley face" symbol, as a marker for text not meant to be
taken literally, especially when humor is intended. This practice aids
communication and averts unintended ill-will; posters are urged to use
it."?  

So what exactly are you doing with your MUA that chokes on "--" instead
of "-- "?
