    I added the ability to turn off avatars, smilies, thumbnails, and/or signatures.

    Click on your username link (upper right), select Preferences, and select the features you want.

    Testing to see if smilies are going to mess with code. :D :p

    Note: that's a colon-D and a colon-p

    Again, colon-D and colon-p

    Triple post time! I still see the cute little faces even though I've got "Hide smilies (display as text)" checked in my preferences.

    I see the little graphical faces. How about in [CODE] tags?

    Colon-D and colon-p :

    Aha -- now I see. Those tick boxes work if you select the radio button labelled "All the time," under "NSFW Options." (Another acronym I can't decipher.)

    "Not Safe For Work," I guess. The smileys don't look particularly ribald to me, but I guess you could put salacious stuff in the avatar pictures if you wanted to.

    In that case, it should be PNSFW ("potentially not safe for work").

    ... Or the other way, if you type the NetBIOS computer name in the field labelled "(this machine)".
