I propose a monthly limit of, say, 2 each. They're really annoying when over used.

That is all.

They can take my royalty percentages, but they can't take my emoticons!

Haven't you seen the movie Major League? They will take EVERYTHING to get you to quit.  Pretty soon we will have to pay a subscription fee to use emoticons.

I'd agree. If Shakespeare, Twain and Hemmingway didn't need 'emoticons' to express themselves then neither should we.

If we're going to have a limit though it should be based on age rather than time. If you are 4 years old or younger then you can use them.

Don't give me any ideas.

Actually, they kind of can. SS has been cracking down on smiley images recently. Seems someone claimed trademark of some smiley designs and lots of images were pulled from the collection.

i'm in favor of a total internet-wide ban on smilies.

unfortunately i must admit often it's easy to misunderstand what someone is writing, is he angry ? is he ironic ? is it a joke ?

so they use smilies, just in case, but some people is really abusing this thing, and what about the invasion of the SMS slang ?

it's a tragedy and yes, not professional at all, if you can't write without smilies it means you can't write properly at all ! fact.
