    And if you get rid of images, none of those social media servers serving up "share with " icons gets a hit either. As an added bonus, no emojis.

      not true

      go ahead and try to remove them from a modern linux distribution. hell I can right click and insert emojis into config files for a text editor, and if I copy and paste actual config code IT GETS FUCKED UP because of the damn emojis!

      even the context menus let you insert emojis into a lot of shit

      i dont fucking care if they are catering to people that cant read in any or every language--if its a font, then let me choose it or delete it and error back to wingings or something everyone agrees was already useless so I know what to start ignoring again instead of having to clean up config files.

      i'd blame someone else but I think this is partially my fault for not killing everyone responsible when emojis as fonts were included in OSes and phones ... and not limited to just icons. encouraging the ignorance of the masses has a good result for the people in power, but i dont want to come out of my ivory tower and be inconvenienced with explaining to them to leave me alone since they couldnt read the sign

        Maybe you need software that can handle Unicode then.

    We could just get rid of unicode for that.
