    Just curious, but did you guys ever consider maybe dropping the rolleyes smiley?
    You know, this one... [​IMG].
    I've had a couple put in my direction in the last few days, and it's amazing how, well, stupid, it can make you feel.
    Just inquiring. Thanks.

    Though I don't use that particular smiley much I do like it because it says so much without using words. Sometimes, people just need to think before posting certain questions or comments. There have been several times that I almost needed my tongue stitched up due to biting it after reading some postings. [​IMG]

    It does get a little overused, I agree. That said, like CD I think it can put over a point that can sometimes be difficult to put into words.

    As Rob stated, the smiley is overused by some members!

    C'mon Jon...don't take your anger out on the [​IMG] symbol.
    Some people can be jerks behind a keyboard and monitor at times...what ya gonna do?
    Removing a "smiley" won't solve this.
