Also a useful way to communicate across factions in games like WoW where Alliance and Horde players speak different in-game languages such as Orcish, Darnassian, etc.
Night Elf Player #1: What the heck is this Tauren doing in Teldrassil?
Night Elf Player #2: Use the insult emote on the bitch, he can't touch you here. :P
