A polite reminder from the moderators (alderz, expat, grey, lukerz, suz, wombat and me).
As you (hopefully) know, responding to someone's post with a ;lol smiley and no further comment is treated the same as if you said their post was laughable or ridiculous. It will be modded. (Unless the original post is very clearly a joke or otherwise meant to be humorous, perhaps indicated with a ;whistle or some other smiley to show the poster's intentions).
The problem that has been cropping up is that people can now use the new response buttons to - in effect - do the same thing by clicking the 'made me laugh' button. This is treated the same as if you just post a ;lol . From a modding point of view, though, these are easy to miss and difficult to fix.
So can we ask you to be aware of it, please, and not to do it. Thank you very much.
PS - also please note that the phrase 'do one' is treated as masked swearing, so can you use 'get lost' or some other toned-down phrase please.
