It's rather classy, actually. Just not the most appropriate (sic?).

XD is one of those text smilies. It represents a ig cheesey grin and screwed-up eyes thus resulting.
Sic is latin, I think it means 'mistake' or 'spelling'. It's common to include it in brackets after a word about which you aren't sure of the spelling.

Man, I've been working like a dog this week, but I'm about to do some more on it now. I've all day off tomorrow, so I should be able to make some progress then.

i learned this not too long ago: 'sic' is latin for 'thus' or 'like so.'

it's used to indicate that a text quotation is being represented as it was originally, for example when someone's quote contains a misspelling.

the state motto of virginia is 'sic semper tyrannis,' meaning 'thus always to tyrants' (a revolutionary reference).

no, i don't speak latin, and can't be expected to have many answers. it's just a coincidence that i picked up this fact somewhere.

Well, I don't know what the solution is to getting more member here but I mention this place nearly everywhere I go.

I try my best. I love this place and I hope others will see the light and join us.

And it should appear either after a single misspelling or at the end of a passage with multiple errors, not numerous times within the same passage.

I failed Latin.
