    I'd much prefer it if skype just gave users the option of hiding emoticons altogether.

    The world has gone too PC! You can't say or do anything just in case it taken as an insult by someone! The world is turning very bland! TV comedy (bland)!

    Re: News - Potentially offensive Skype emoticons removed by Microsoft

    'Potentially' offensive...??!!

    So my ability to call someone a complete c-word is far more likely to be offensive, yet they haven't removed me?

    This is just ridiculous!!
