Elkslayer - In the online world of noise and signal, smilies beyond what we offer are considered noise by most around here. They are an aid to express emotion when words fail or could be misconstrued, not as window dressing.

Hope you understand.

Bravo. I dislike trying to read web pages with dancing, blinking distractions, that try to act as replacements for proper writing skills in the English language.

The Internet encourages far too much laziness with writing skills, spelling and grammar.

People who use that angry red emoticon look like deranged nuts with anger problems 90% of the time. It's like "The neighbors kitten walked over my lawn today :ANGERFACE: I'M GOING TO BEAT IT WITH A SHOVEL YEEEE-AARGH! :ANGERFACE: :ANGERFACE:"

I'm with Bluesman for his exact stated reasons, but I do vote for replacing the standard smiley with the clown smiley in the previous post.

It's just so much more... well... sinister.

It reminds me of the bumper sticker: "Keep smiling, they'll wonder what you're up to".

I do understand

I Know what your saying. I do not want to ruffle feathers out there,
I still think the elkgrin was a cool smilie.(go figure)
The drool and beer were also, as for the the scared and cursing. I added them for the reason stated ...guy waving a loaded gun around saying no worries its not loaded.....that sort of behavior make's me mad. I am sure im not alone on this subject.
Not that we need a icon to express our disapproval of such behavior.
So yes I understand they are noise and distracting, only thought the smilies with horns would be a nice addition. No moving,or flashing just a brown dude with a rack.
