Default Emoticons

I've never seen a forum that doesn't have smilies and won't allow members to post them.

Is there a reason why?

Please don't say "it's the rule."

Why is it a rule?

Every couple of years this pops up. The answer is always the same. Bernhard feels that language is still the best form of communication. It's a discussion forum and what better way to promote it than the written word.

It is a rule purely because it's his forum, contained within his website and that's the way he wants it. He's never bent on it in my time here, so I guess he wants it to stand firm.

Default Thank you, sir!

I can totally understand his thinking.

I have a thing about people quoting the previous post, so I don't allow that at my forum.

Again, thanks!

I was told by a mod that you couldn't even embed them.

Default HuH?

Wut is an asscii emoticon?

Back in the days of dial-up, I could understand the embedding thing.

Nowadays?

I'm like... 'derp?' Does dial-up still exist?

Truth is, while language is the best form of communication - at least until I perfect telepathy - written language has a number of pitfalls. The largest of which is that so much of what is written can be read in a number of ways.
