1. You forgot the wavy smilie.

Some members believe it is offensive.

Are we really going to promote drunken posting here?

Seriously? A autocrat emoji on a supposedly Democratic site?

+ Why two devil emojis? Do we really want to give the evangelicals more ammunition?

Do I need to fucking go into why the fuck this stupid fucking emoji is fucking reprehensible?

Unfortunately you weren't around for my 5,000th post when I posted a series of photos of orange cats with a bunch of puns about my catnip addiction.

The photos were put on Photobucket so I need to go back and edit the thread using my current photo sharing site. Here is the link: https://www.democraticunderground.com/1018462699

11. It's ganja

Nothing wrong with smoking ganja. It's completely legal in my state and has been for several years. But if I catch anyone from a state where it is still forbidden, I'm going to report that poster directly to J Beau.

You're excused this time because you were just bringing it to my attention.

26. Your second one depicts the violent tossing of a yellow thingy down a well....

which leads to a long, painful and protracted death.

At least mine is quick and humane.

Your first one depicts someone plucking their eyes out because they are offended, which can lead to car accidents, bumping into walls and inaccurate measuring cup usage

61. That next-to-last one is just a helpful reminder

that while it's usually okay to scratch your OWN butt -- you must never, ever scratch someone ELSE'S. Not even if you're leaving the grocery store and meet someone with both arms full who says to you, "Could you help? I can't put these bags down, and my butt really itches. Could you scratch it for me?" BEWARE! You're just one hangnail away from a lawsuit!

71. The fist bump emoji is particularly offensive.

first of all, the potential for violence is too high. What if one person hits the other too hard? Secondly, the fact that there's skin on skin contact could imply some form of sexual battery or unwanted touching.
