I don't mind change. I really don't. Change can be good. Great, even. But sometimes change is bad. I think a case of "bad change" can be made for the new smileys. Aside from the fact that the size of every smiley's eyebrows have increased by a factor of 4, they're just way too big in general. I find them distracting from the text of posts. Before, they were managable. Now, not so much.
What do you think if them?
