Webmaster have you thought about integrating emoticons into this forum.
Emoticons are easy, but....?
Emoticons are not particularly difficult to implement in the forums. They are currently turned off.

But I am willing to listen to other perspectives on this. What do forum members think about this?
The emoticons often help to convey the gist of a post that doesn't always come thru as intended when typed in stale text.
People often take a post literally and far too seriously ( which is easy to do, especially if the reader is already defensive to begin with). Some guys post with a little sarcasm, dark humor, just kidding, or totally tongue-in-cheek. The emoticons often help readers to not take the off-beat comments too literally or too seriously.
