Do you really not care what they represent ?

Do you really not care that many things (possibly some opinions you may 
not like) may be represented ?

Disagree strongly.  Show me a swastika and I have an emotion.  Don't 
care if it is new amerika Trump supporters or not ... and I'm not from a 
jewish background.

Why can you not see that these emoticons / glyphs / whatever have meaning ?

What is there to be denied ?

Why is "I hate women" OK in an emoticon but not in an account description ?

Really not getting your view on this, JohnR

Maybe you support him :(

I can assure you there are any number of non complimentary 
representations of Trump on line.  The thing I am struggling with is why 
you are attempting to support the idiot!

FFS this shouldn't be about you being a fuckwit supporter!

This is mean to be about accounting software.
