Submission + - The Smiley-Free Day (wordpress.com)

jani writes: The Arthur Dent Appreciation Society started a new tradition on January 1st, the smiley-free Thursday.

The idea is that people should use the written word more, and emoticons less, and that Thursday is the day to do it every week. The movement is gaining ground internationally, even though Google and Wikipedia haven't caught up yet.

I've joined in, and I'm doing my best to not use smileys when sending e-mail, chatting, or sending SMS-es. Why don't you, too?
