The "_|\_" emote, also known as the "TechCrunched" emote, is a symbol of frustration or disappointment often used in the tech industry. It originated from a TechCrunch article that featured the emote as a representation of the feeling of being "crunched" by the fast-paced and competitive nature of the industry. The emote consists of two vertical bars with an underscore between them, resembling a person who has collapsed in defeat.
