Posted:We (the undersigned) demand an end to the evil that is the "animated smiley".



I have noticed lately that these are multiplying at an alarming rate on these boards. I suspect they are breeding in little yellow love nests, buried deep in the PHP code of the HOP webservers.



soapbox



Reasons for our demands.

1. They are silly.

2. They are stupid

3. My boss can see them jumping up and down very easily over my shoulder and they are clearly not work related

4. (other reasons to follow later)



Come the revolution friends, all animated smileys will be shot after being forced to dig their own unmarked graves .



LET US PUT AN END TO THIS INSANITY TODAY

Posted:Save the smileys! biggrin

I access HOP from work too. If I'm doing it sneakily I minimize my browzer to half page and make sure I have another work-related file open. So if anyone comes near I can press alt tab and voila! work! ubbrollsmile
