What Does O7 Mean?

The emoticon O7 (usually typed as "o7") means "I Salute You."

In the emoticon O7, the letter O represents a head or face, and the number 7 represents an arm and a hand giving a military-style salute.

Of interest, the emoticon uses the left hand, which is the wrong hand. Saluting is typically done with the right hand. The purpose of a salute is to show that you are not concealing a weapon (like a knife) in your hand. As most people are right handed (i.e., it's the hand most people would stab you with), salutes are done with the right hand to reassure the person receiving the salute that you are unarmed.
