    I keep seeing people make a list like this:

    A) blah blah blah
    B) blah blah blah
    C) blah blah blah
    D) blah blah blah

    I kept wondering why the B was a smilie face.

    Well, I just made a post using:

    blah blah blah (Part A)
    blah blah blah (Part B)

    I had to change it to (Part B ) with a space in between the B and the )

    When you type B ), without the space of course, it is the shortcut for the smilie face with the sunglasses.

    Can something be done about this, maybe changing B) to the shortcut of B-) or something

    maybe you could just post somethin like:

    A|
    B|
    C|
    D|

    or

    A>
    B>
    C>
    D>

    or

    A-
    B-
    C-
    D-

    or

    A*
    B*
    C*
    D*

    or anything...
    I just think this is a useless suggestion, really. B)

    I've noticed this before, it's an annoying little problem I guess. And can easily be resolved.

    I'll change the shortcut from...

    B)

    to..

    B-)

    That works. I always just disabled smileys if I was posting stuff like this, but it's helpful to know that you're changing it.

    I noticed that every time I posted one of my ABC posts... I get around it by putting a space after the B and before the )... It's just a funny little glitch...
