  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?

it is so annoying when people use icons to sub words in their stories. it might entertain someone to do that and not publish it, but its aggravating to see them everywhere. and if tdp doesnt want us to write "sexually related" stories, they shouldnt give us "sexually related" icons to use in our stories. some of them dont show up on the av chat list of icons, or on here but on the profile comments they will.

guys! Come on! Its fun, don't take it seriously! What is wrong with the hanging one? It doesn't have to stand for something mean. You could say you died laughing (if appropriate) and use the icon !!! Ok, its not so easy to come up with excuses. But seriously, whats the big deal?

ps my fave is lol

Great article. Keep posting controversial stuff, girl! Instead of the norm: 'Beauty and Fashion Ideas'

I agree. There are even worse ones you can use if you know the code.

Oh, and umm, why does the sperm icon look so sad? Shouldn't sperm be, well, happy?

*is not a p3rv3rt* XD
