They aren't smiling anymore!

Smileys!!Since the dawn of H2G2 (and probably the net, too), Smileys have been accepted as accura147te forms of communication of feelings and/or ideas. We would like to expand on the idea of the smiley, just a little. We call ourselves CAVE [At the moment, The Campaign to Allow Violent Emoticons, a name which may be changing soon.]. Our mission is to make violent, explosive, destructive, or otherwise cruel and unusual smiley images a part of H2G2.

What started as a way to express feelings in a combination of letters, symbols, and numbers has developed into a beloved code, of sorts. Starting with :-), the smiley soon devoloped as smiley - smiley, :-D became smiley - biggrin, and :-P became smiley - tongueout. Now there are a lot more smileys, but still, the public craves more. We started our group in hope of bringing more violent, explosive, destructive, or otherwise cruel and unusual smileys to the mainstream. Please join us!

We know perfectly well that our goal is nearly impossible but we're going to campaign anyway!
