Lately, there has been a rash of using the and pukey: emoticons in a manner that directly attacks the person and not the persons argument.

It was decided this was not taking the high road, something for which TFL has always stood for. Therefore, those emoticons have been disabled.

Sorry if this inconveniences anyone.

"Sorry if this inconveniences anyone."

Eh, not really, to my way of thinking.

Their very existence was inconveniencing staff.

Darn. This will force people to use clever verbal invective such as ":barf:" when they want to be insulting. Unless such things are added to the language filter...

Where will it end?

:wink:

Be careful what you wish for.

Al has answered the OP's question and the silly remarks aren't adding anything to the content....which, in part is why these emoticons are no longer with us.
