I know it is not permitted to use words that might insult others or might offend them, but is it then right to use smilies that do just that?
I think it's a good idea to remove these two from the list :ass: :finger:

Im totally against this idea....i mean those smileys are hilarious....i crack up everytime i see them!

I vote for keeping those smileys.....

Because you have a choice to ignore them and not use them I guess...

Plus they seem decent smilies but I agree with you on having icons that are worded rather then faces etc.

I'm definitely one of the people who'd never (even under gun threat ;)) use those 2 smilies, or even to type out or say those words anyway. But those 2 smilies may not be necessarily offensive after all. Some people use them in a fun manner, and well, when there's someone who use those smilies meant to insult you, well, just ignore it.

Can you imagine how much time the smiley-designer spent to create those smilies? ;)

But hey, if those 2 smilies get removed I request for the rolleyes smiley to be removed too! I mean, that smiley face makes me want to punch the green guy whenever he pops up! :dielaugh:
And the kiss smiley is also very scary! And sleazy :eek:

Not that anyone has used them at me before, but if somebody used the finger smiley, then I know what he's saying, and I wouldn't like it very much, the same when someone calls me ass but uses the smiley instead.
The roll eyes like to stir things too, but it's more of a whatever type of smiley, and if people don't agree me, and think whatever, yeah, then that's their choice, but I still don't like the finger and the ass smiley. :yuck:

Anyway, I take it seriously Bazman. I see what you mean, but it is just that I don't agree with you on this one. I think that the two smilies are not necessarily offensive, since they are also often used in a friendly/funny way. Therefore, I am against taking out these two smilies. :)

Hey, I love the :ass: and :finger: smilies, I thought they were hilarious. Perhaps the members of XT wouldn't find it so offensive if it were a buxomy female derriere. :D

Actually, I think the :kiss: smiley looks sort of like that one female muppet that played in the band...without the blonde braids.
