Are you sure that product contains no spyware/adware/viruses? Because you can never believe the website.

Default Um...

Don't think that's gonna fly here. It's the same as having a custom sig. Eats up the bandwidth and slows things down. Looks messy for a computer forum.

Dont blame you for that, because I tried d/loading some from Smiley Central, DON'T go there! it landed me with a trojan, AVG locked it in their vault, but I didn't go there again.
No trouble with Get Smile though, I've had it for ages. but of course it's up to you.

I'd still not prefer to use them. As Setishock said, it slows down browsing for everybody, and it means that because a few people use them, it takes an age to browse the forums.

seti; the greetings were just examples suggested for members to use off-site for sending greetings by e-mail, obvously too messy on forums, see my last posting, above.

Don't want to upset the apple cart.
