  Icon Abuse?  (Doll Article)

(August 07, 2007 by SILLYx_LoveSongs Send DollMail )
My own personal opinion on the use of doll palace icons and animations.
Now of course we are all familiar with the icon. The little animations or emotions you can post in comments and in doll palace stories themselves.

Now, my opinion here is that they are completely uneccesary. I can understand smiles and sad faces, but guns, nooses, and swear? Come on!

Now I have seen some very immature behaviour with these, people saying that they hate a story and using little throw up icons or something similar.

Or when someone just feels the need to hate someone and uses a little noose icon with someone hanging by it. It's disgusting.

It really needs to stop. These icons (some having even boasted swears and the likes) are okay to some extent, like in chat and content edited ones in the comments. But in stories it's just stupid. They are called stories, not "Adventures of Icon-Man". Although sometimes people make fun of this and make an amusing story out of icons. That's not the same.

Now feel free to say whatever you want, but I will not have anybody arguing or calling me or my supporters stupid. Just think about it.

What does this pose to you?

I agree that some icons go too far (sperm and threesome for example) but some of them are cute and funny (hippy). And the flags are nice for someone who is very proud of where they or their family comes from. It's true that alot of people use them too much, or try to hurt others with them, but as long as the icons are there people will do whatever they want with them. So maybe Jessica or someone else who helps her should remove some of the more disgusting ones.

Aren't people allowed to do what they want though? I mean, really. Nobody takes them seriously anyways. Some of them, yes, are quite sick, but complain to the people who make the icons. People who run TDP. Or just don't say anything at all. Icons are lame anyways. They are hardly used. I agree with nikki_radcliffe wholeheartedly, I mean, it's true what she says. But political correctness and censorship have also gone too far. So I suppose people who can't handle the fact of being "abused by an icon" then THEY can wake up. Suck it up and ignore them, or delete the comment. It's not so bad, icons are just for people who are too stupid to write and need icons to explain what they have to say.

That's my opinion.

Some of the smilies are disgusting and wrong...Like the hump one. Some aren't bad. I use the swear ones when some one steals one of my dollehs. But I think that the sexualy related ones are wrong...cause I have seen six year olds on here. I don't think its right. But I like the violent ones!

I lean both ways, But I think that mostly if you dont like them dont use them, if you like them use them, its not like people purposely use them to affend others but most of them are just for fun. I say keep them up!

I dont get the sperm one..... or the noose one eather, I mean, I collect avvies, I don't like the little emotion things, they just don't make sence, I mean they are cute ONCE IN A WHILE!!!! but not in every sentence, see, it's like if you say the same word again & again, & again & again, It's obnoxius!!! It really needs to stop! ESPECIALLY IN STORIES!!!!!
