Default The Smiley Limit Institutional Act

The Smiley Limit Institutional Act, or simply to say is a proposal to limit the amount of smiley in one's post. The reasons why may be pathetic of taking up bandwidth space, but however I present numerous of reasons to limit the amount of smiley in a post:
  • Its annoying to have more than 3 - 5 smiley
  • Takes less bandwidth (mildly?)
  • *COUGH*Obsoletes Durandal's annoying birthday smiley usage*COUGH*
  • Smilies are overrated
  • Noobish jerks can't make a thread represented with all and only smilies (lets say 50 animated smiley) that will lag some of the viewers computer
  • etc...

So can't we just place a limit? As far as I know of it, it shouldn' t be too hard to place a limit for smilies.

-While it may be annoying, sometimes it is useful as well as humorous.
-The bandwidth smilies use is insignificant to the bandwidth used to upload/download attached files, post/read posts, and post/read threads. The effect on bandwidth will be, at best, unnoticable.
-Same as the first
-To YOU smilies are overrated, to others they're pretty cool. If they weren't used they wouldn't be here.
-Unless you have a really old computer with failing hardware this isn't an issue either. My 486, built in 1993, can display several hundred animated gifs at once and not show much lag. Also generally posts like that get edited/deleted by administrators, supermods, and moderators, especially if there's no content.
-etc... isn't a reason.

I never see a load of smilies, except when Durandal posts his Birhtday message. They don't bother me, so I really don't mind.

Dude, smiles are awesome. Why do you care so much about what Durandal does? Most times I see you bashing him for just having fun with the smilies. Suck it up.

I oppose this constitutional amendment as being unconstitutional and infringing on my right of free smiley speech.

Actually, the simlies are only loaded once, and then loaded from cache. Any bandwidth usage would be nil.

So we're not going to limit the amount of smilies?

Oh well. I can live. This can be closed now?
