Smileys are not annoying. Smilies are an exploration of a new medium of communication. And as always, there are those who just don't like them consarned new fangled horseless carriages. My favorite smiley is the one that does laundry, but it is not available here. Ok nuff trolling let's see what bites. :popcorn:

If a person does not like smileys he or she is a Luddite? Let me quote some Shakespeare concerning that jaundiced point of view: Image ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage. Such eloquence.

I miss the smiley face tipping his hat that the grey forum has.
Thats true, nothings THAT funny.
Which reminds me of the conversation between Mick Jagger and the Veteren Jazzer George Melly.
" Mick how did your face get so lined ?"
" They are laughter lines George"
" Mick... nothings that funny."

Soon, all we'll be doing is grunting and posting smileys.
It makes my blood run cold thinking that perhaps some of you are already there - beyond help...

The potato was a thing of beauty. Smilies are artless. Alas, we are stuck with these things.

"As Buddhists, we should aim to develop relationships that are not predominated by grasping and clinging. Our relationships should be characterised by the brahmaviharas of metta (loving kindness), mudita (sympathetic joy), karuna (compassion), and upekkha (equanimity)."
