How can a coloured <3 distract people?

Out of interest? or take away from what the forum is for. What *removed*.

Yet ironically, you warn me in bright red? Makes me laugh.

If you are talking about the one in your signature, I would say that it is the thin end of a very thick wedge.

Does it really kill you to not have it there?
Its a forum rule. It's one that people have managed to adhere to since the dawn of FR. It is no personal vendetta against you.

Mod notes are always made in that colour, precisely because they will then stand out, and be noted.

I love FR's signature guidelines :hearts:
Loads of other forums give me a headache because of bright coloured texts (and not to mention the flashing, glittery ones that go on for half a page).

You could always use a :hearts: smiley :)

If one person uses a coloured word or symbol, and the next person wants a tiny animated gif, and then the next person wants a big sparkly glittery star... you see where I'm going with this, that's why the rule is there.

Agreed, its the thin end of the wedge! Use a hearts smiley instead.

I find it more ironic that you break a rule, complain about it, and break another rule in the process.

i'm pretty sure that a certain pet store has those in now...only problem is they are £5 more than normal rats and you can't mix them with FR else there will be death and stuff...
