    Default Who's dumb idea was it?

    ....to limit the amount of images in a post to 4?

    It counts smileys as images, and is extremely annoying having to redo a post because you have smiled too much!

    Is this a conspiracy against people showing emotions?

    **** you Vulcans!



    ....and that's all the emotion you get from me in this post!!

    Or maybe it's just a hint to grow up?

    And grownups don't have to smile or express lots of emotions? Is there some such universal rule against this that the cosmos imposes or is it human doctrine? I bet it's the latter

    How about using "language" for that?

    Ever noticed, that some of the greatest people in expressing emotions in written form never needed (or had) smilies?

    No, experience.

    Excessive use of smilies is found in kids or "mentally challenged" people (with a "prediction success rate" > 95%).

    A picture can say a thousand words... or in this case, a smiley



    No, experience.

    (I wanted to put more but it didn't allow)

    Am I mentally challenged now? Oh wait, your "prediction success rate" just FAILED

    Your experience is not a universal cosmological law, nor is how society dictates how one should behave or not wrt to emotions. Stop spewing *******s

    Then how about a technical aspect:

    Posting console output without CODE-Tags is very often hard to read.

    With large amounts of output it gets worse and the chances, that information gets garbled because of "false smilies", are also increased.

    This forces users to put their stuff into CODE-Tags.

    Am I mentally challenged now?
    I will give a polite answer by not answering that.

    (And here no smiley is needed, think of the one which you would like to see.)

    Oh woe tis trouble I see when one breakest thou smiley faces
    in rare occurrence. I bid thee adieu and takest thou limits
    in thine divine province.

    I can't think of a smiley which I would like to see since there's no way for me to catch your emotional mood at this time of writing, thus I can be very wrong when thinking about a smiley which matches or doesn't matches your feelings. I can think about or but there's no way for me to verify if you think or feel the same way. If you put a smiley next to your post, it has a better chance for others in catching your mood without writing long essays about how you feel the moment you posted

    Well, it's up to you if you want to put yourself into the 5 or the 95% group.

    So much about "FAILED".

    The question you asked can be compared with standing in the middle of a crowded place with wide-spread legs holding up a sign "please kick me".

    To push this paradigm a little further, people of the "95%-group" wonder why their groin hurts after they awake from a coma.

    *put smiley here*
