  • Congratulations to you all for being 1 /140

    . . .th.

    Of what keeps TOL brimming with new content. I see there are 140 active members on TOL, that's something the old format didn't do, this one runs an algorithm and it says there are 140 users it considers active. So congratulations for being 1 /140th of what makes TOL a breathing anonymous internet discussion board, instead of a dead /extinct one.

    Keep up the good work.

      Yeah the smilie catastrophe is really hitting us hard. I just did the winking smile smilie with the semicolon and closed parenthesis, the forum automatically converted it to a smilie, and smilies doesn't show up, so I look like a

          Haha, Idolater.

          Speaking of the semicolon/closed parenthesis, several days ago (prior to the recent, big TOL changes) I was going to make a light-hearted little post to showcase some of the occurrences of it in the KJV. Some of them (to me, at least) are kind of funny in the inopportuneness of their being (illegitimately, of course) interpreted as winking smilies. One of my favorites was in Ezekiel 16:23 KJV, immediately after the words, "woe, woe unto thee! saith the Lord God". It won't do for me to try to display it on here, of course, because, as you noted, it won't show up anyway. 1 Timothy 2:7's instance was pretty funny to me, also, occurring as it does immediately after Paul's words, "I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not"--I mean, hadn't Paul read Proverbs 6:13 KJV? Also, the colon/closed parenthesis combo has a few awkward instances in the KJV, if you interpret it as a smiley. One of my favorites was the one immediately after Moses' words, "I exceedingly fear and quake", in Hebrews 12:21 KJV.
