I don’t object to the textual smilies people use. However, I utterly butterly loathe the yellow graphics 🙁
spawn of satans animated versions.
My email client tends to convert text smilies into the graphic versions – yeuk.
Except, when it goes wrong. In the example below, the silly program interpreted part of a UK postal code as being a smilie. It should read as EH8 8DP
