    OK, this is new. If I type a word that can be made into a smiley, the BB software automatically inserts the smiley into my text. This is not cool.

    Strange, but it didn't do it just now. If BB software would have behaved as it has elsewhere today we should have seen the word "made" look like the MAD smiley, and the word cool would have looked like the COOL smiley. Apparently it doesn't do it in this forum.

    Bonus: Once again, I notice that no editing is allowed in this forum.

    If the code for the smilie is the same as a normal word it will present a smilie in its place. That is not new it has always been that way even with the former software. The trick is not to give smilies codes that resemble everyday words. That is what is new. Since we have yet another absentee owner this will not likely get fixed.
