The Ozy and Millie Code

Are you a fan of Ozy and Millie? Well, tell the world! Presented herein is the Ozy and Millie Code (abbr.: O&M). Void where prohibited. Simply add this convenient code to your sig. file, and all the net will know the truth of your love for Ozy, Millie, their parents, and even Felicia. At cons, add it to your badge! A million uses! The Ozy and Millie Code is a simple, powerful, and, hopefully, _silly_ tool for fan communication.
To distinguish our code from other, lesser codes, the code is always preceded by the identifier "O&M", and the version indicator "JJ1". These are _not_ optional! Follow this with codes from the categories below. You do not have to include every code; only those you think significant. In cases where degrees are indicated, feel free to expand the code in either direction as you see fit. White space between the codes is recommended but not required; "Ozy++ Mil++" and "Ozy++Mil++" are equally acceptable. Case is important! As yet there is little possibility of confusion if you use "dad++" instead of the correct "Dad++", but we are attempting to maintain forward compatibility.
The following modifiers may be applied to the codes. Most of them indicate a degree of indecision.
/    Use a slash when two different values apply. "Jer---^/++".
>    Use a bracket to show a range of feelings. "Fel->++"
~    Use a tilda to indicate waffling and indecision. "Ave~"
?    Use a question mark to denote true bafflement."Tim?"
{X}  Use curly brackets around a rating you hope to attain. "\\${+++}"
[X]  Use square brackets around a rating that once applied. "Dp[s]"
Characters We Love
You are not obliged to include a code for _every_ character; just the ones you want us to know about. Many groups and characters are listed below. The ratings are as follows:
XX---             I want to _get this character wet and sticky_.
XX--              I turn off the computer when this character is on.
XX-               I'd rather this character wasn't on so often.
XX or XX0   No feelings; ho-hum.
XX+              I'm fond of this character.
XX++            I love this character!
XX+++          I have written mash notes to this character; I have a tattoo.
Avery, wet and sticky Dad giving Ozy a tattoo
Here are examples of both extremes. ;-)

You may modify this rating by appending one of the following:

i     I see elements of myself in the character.
!     I think this character is cute.
^    I love the character for his or her mind.
"    I love the character for his or her ears.
t     I love the character for his or her tail(s).
