I would rather him do that than the excessive similies. Also, thank you Chuck for toning those down lately.

in another vbulletin forum i was at, the smileys were limited to 4 per post, so it is possible to limit it like that, but when i think about really long posts it quite hinders you as well, but then again not every sarcastic comment needs a smiley just to show that it was meant sarcasticly, especially in a really long post.

I think a good limit would be 5-7

Edit: Horray for 666 likes!

No, It's completely different, they are 1700 km apart. Jeddah is on the red Sea, Doha and Dubai are on the Arabian Gulf. The weather in Jeddah is better.
