Remove smileys in messenger program (iChat for mac)

It has long annoyed me that there is no intuitive, straightforward way to disable smileys in chat programs.

Today I found that these two commands can do it for iChat for mac:

$ cd /Applications/iChat.app/Contents/Resources/English.lproj/
$ mv SmileyTable.plist SmileyTable.plist.bak

Restart iChat. (tip from MacOSXhints.com: Disable graphical smileys in iChat 3.0 but it works for me on Mac OS X 10.5.8 with iChat 4.0.8 (619).

Now my conversations look like this:
ichat-messenger-with-smileys-disabled

Which reminds me that I better soon write a short article on the problem of having the wrong and obtrusive defaults in your applications.

    Ok, I understand that in some instances they are just not required but there are those that genuinely love them and they can give a little levity to a boring day. But now there are ways to do it for those who can’t bear a smile! Don’t worry I wouldn’t even dream of trying to leave one here!

    I personally find the smileys a little annoying as well maybe because they are used so liberally. Now I know how to disable them on Yahoo and Ichat. How about on ICQ? Thanks for the useful information.
