Interesting that you brought it up. I REMEMBER THAT. Every other thread was "Man, these smilies make this place look stupid. They chould keep the old ones." Now, it's just te opposite. Funny thing is, when we got the new smilies, (the hand-drawn ones) I remember thinking they were stupid, and wanting the old ones back. Now I feel differently. I think these we have now suck and want the hand-drawn ones back. Just goes to show how things can grow on you. In a couple of months, if we switched back to the drawn ones, everyone would be bitching again. Just let it go, people. How much does it REALLY affect your life? AT LEAST we don't have those damn tongue-wagging spinning, flipping ones that some places have!
P.S.-- Wen I work on this computer (one of the workstations at my job) I have the old hand-drawn smilies.
