Control of Comment Icons

Control of Comment Icons

Short, concise description of the idea
Ability to disable individual icons from appearing in comments, preferably for all viewers.

Full description of the idea
It bugs the heck out of me when people comment on my site using sexually explicit or crude icons. I's like to have some control of this, in terms of what visitors to my site see. I keep my LJ PG and some of these icons really undo my efforts.

An ordered list of benefits
  • I have an entirely PG LJ and I would like every reader to be able to come to my LJ without being made to feel uncomfortable by images they see in the comments.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • This may be difficult to implement Another possibility would be to give individuals the option of hiding certain icons as they browse. That would take control away from the LJ owner, and would be an unknown function to new users, but would be better than nothing.
  • Thing is, one wants people to comment, and the one time I've asked someone to change their icon suggests that the possibility of offending them is high. I'm not sure how to deal with that. I just know that I don't want certain kinds of icons on my LJ.
