Is Gone and [past participle] always used to convey disapproval, annoyance, surprise, silly etc. without exception?

Hi, Kuen,

One should be very careful before saying that something is "always and without exception" a certain way in English grammar. If you are looking for exceptions, think of cases where "gone" means "left":

A: Has she gone already?
B: Yes, she has gone and flown back to China.
