    I'm thinking of temporarily removing this one, given the penchant for a particular segment of users to spam it when their arguments (or lack thereof) get smacked down.
    I'm curious which one they'll latch onto in its place until it gets reinstated.

    In the meantime, I'd also like to add :brood: to the rep options.

    Rep is meaningless. Let the dildos spam, it only makes them look pathetic

    Personally, I think we have way too many rep icons. It's ridiculously cluttered.

    But I also don't see any reason to remove specific ones just because some people use them a lot.

    Troll Kingdom recently changed to icon rep. They have twice as many icons, but theirs does look a bit neater than ours. Then, I realize there's can be hidden from view until needed, so then it doesn't matter how many icons there are.

    I wouldn't mind a brood or angry rep option here.

    oh it's not because some people use them a lot... it's to see how they adapt (and to troll them a bit)

    When I originally set it up, I think it came with something like 12 icons. I didn't really want to go beyond that because I've felt that rep is a gut reaction, something you feel and act on right then. Too many options means slowing that reaction down. Of course, around here that might work out better, I don't know.

    I'm generally not fan of using the actual mechanics of the board to troll people.
