Can we have an option that I can disable those emo-icons (smiley/vomit icons, etc), somewhere in my profile? although they are funny, good-lookings, I hate to see they mess around everywhere on the pages, I saw one single post has 15 vomit icons! It's amazing that some people simply can abuse anything.

I am not a big fan of these icons, they are almost always misused anyway.

I agree. Surely there should be some way to spare us.

I agree, it would be nice to be able to disable the emo-icons. Also, maybe a ban on the using emo-icons without any text (just posting a "vomit" icon by itself, for example).

Whoa! No need to exaggerate. 15? The forum software only allows you to put 10 smilies per post.

You could disable all graphics if you really don't wanna see any smilies.

There you go with the logic again, namja. What'd I tell you about that??

Seriously, I don't see a problem with the smilies. They are there to be inserted into posts. I'd rather see somebody post either or instead of saying "That's funny" in response to a joke someone made. After all, a picture is worth 1000 words. So 10 smilies would be worth a whole lot of words.

I said EITHER, not both.
