    I've grown weary of their presence on my screen.

    Haha. I figured I'd see that comment. But seriously, if there is a way I can disable them that would be cool. I was going to just PM Ringel because he seems to know about this stuff, but I think an open thread would draw from a larger cesspool of knowledge.

    If you use Firefox you could do it via AdBlockPlus.

    Or you could just stop reading this messageboard. :lol:

    I think I have that in my Firefox, but I still see the emoticons.

    Maybe I'm doing something wrong in FF, though.

    You have to tell it what to block. Right click on the emoticon and you'll get a little pop up with choices. I think the default choice would do the trick.

    Shoot. Just tried that with the LOL emoticon above, and I didn't get that option.

    Hmmm. Maybe I really don't have the adblock plug-in. Thought I did.

    Thanks.

    To do so would censor those unable to compose a simple sentence. CrusaderFrank would be made mute ... ah, how do we eliminate them?
