removing smiley galore on the right while writing or editing

Postby mirco » Thu Jan 26, 2012 8:15 am

Hi Friends,


if you want that smiley galore on the right not to be there, here is one method.
Of course, mental methods are welcome. But for the moment it would be

With Firefox: use adblock plus, hit left mouse button and add it to the filter list.
With Opera: hit left mouse button and block content.

Now you can enjoy writing and editing your posts without all that flashing & twinkling.


Regards, :-)

"An important term for meditative absorption is samadhi. We often translate that as concentration, but that can suggest a certain stiffness. Perhaps unification is a better rendition, as samadhi means to bring together. Deep samadhi isn't at all stiff. It's a process of letting go of other things and coming to a unified experience." -

Took me a while until I knew what you meant with "smiley galore".
And: Can it be that you live in a mirror world? Left <-> right?

To stop the smileys flashing and twinkling while editing a post I usually just hit "Esc".

What is wrong with just not paying attention to them?
but just tried that esc suggestion and i was surprised it worked :)

yes I am a techno wiz :)

What Makes an Elder? :
A head of gray hairs doesn't mean one's an elder. Advanced in years, one's called an old fool.
But one in whom there is truth, restraint, rectitude, gentleness,self-control, he's called an elder, his impurities disgorged, enlightened.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …

I find the box on the right very convenient on mobile devices. If you want to post with minimal exposure to the box type your post in an external editor (like notepad++) and paste it.

And if you see yellow gremlins: it sometimes happens when you pour water over them on your screen ;)
