I've always found the lol smiley pretty stupid too, but I don't have the authority or the ability to change it. Sorry fellas.

The thing is, there really isn't enough people who are annoyed by it to go through the trouble to change it. Plus, as has been mentioned, there are several work-arounds if you really just can't stand it. The other mods would probably have me castrated if I tried to change it. That is the usual punishment for things like this.

Luke, no offense, I know you're trying to help, and we're on the same side, but that excuse sucks :P

It'd take what, 10 seconds to replace/remove the smiley? It'd take about a minute to replace the entire smiley set.

And yeah, why would I ever put :!: :?: instead of the actual symbols?

Come on......

:P <-- hannibal lecter :/

You can disable smileys when you post. I disable bbcode when I want to tell people to wrap their code in
Syntax: [ Download ] [ Hide ]
tags.

But then other, slightly less irritating smileys don't parse.
