From here and on we propose to be more docile, kind, pleasant, considerate of others and their feelings. To use our talents & efforts towards the benefit of others. To see the good, bright side of another. To post with a smile.
And to this we affix our signatures, we the people. (by the people, for the people)

zk – you should be number ONE not ten.
you said we should post with a smile. what if someone posts something really nasty and then puts a smile at the end? will that negate the negative and fit in with your requirements? 🙂
just asking…. cuz ya know…. some ppl around here can’t always be so nice 🙁December 18, 2011 6:48 pm at 6:48 pm #835849
I’d rather people direct their pent up negative emotions here than elsewhere. And Gefen, I’d respectfully disagree, everyone CAN be nice. (also how could someone post something nasty and then smile?)December 18, 2011 7:04 pm at 7:04 pm #835850oomisParticipant
I second that request.December 18, 2011 7:59 pm at 7:59 pm #835851I can only tryMember

High Court Refuses to Consider Appeal of Death Row Inmate
March 01, 1994 Associated Press
Lower courts previously had rejected the challenge of Robert Drew, who was convicted of fatally stabbing an Alabama teen-ager in 1983 and sentenced to die by lethal injection.
Drew’s attorney, Ronald Kuby, said lower courts dismissed the case on a technicality and never ruled on whether District Judge Charles Hearn should be allowed to use the smiley face as part of his signature.
Hearn has insisted that he had used the smiley face for years as a symbol of his faith in God. “The ruling speaks for itself,” he said Monday. “It’s part of my signature.”
Drew, 34, came within hours of execution in October before being granted a reprieve by a Texas civil appeals court. No new execution date has been set. He maintains he is innocent.
(Drew was executed later in 1994 – icot)
Serial killer extradited to Calif. to face charges
December 10, 2009 The Associated Press
RIVERSIDE, Calif. – A serial killer has been extradited to Riverside County to face charges in the killing of a woman whose body was found in the desert near Blythe in 1992.
Sheriff’s officials say Keith Hunter Jesperson, known as “The Happy Face Killer,” arrived in Riverside County on Tuesday from Oregon, where he was serving a life sentence for a November 1995 murder.
Sgt. Michael Lujan says Jesperson has also admitted to killings in Washington, Wyoming, Oregon and Northern California.
Jesperson is known as the “Happy Face Killer” for drawing happy faces in letters in which he boasted of his crimes to prosecutors and an Oregon newspaper.
Jesperson was charged with the latest felony murder in September and is scheduled to be arraigned on Friday.
(I couldn’t resist the juxtaposition of the above two cases with that comment. I also couldn’t resist the chance to use the word “juxtaposition” in a post.)

Too many syllables in that word (juxt…), my processor syllables out upon encountering such words.
Anyway, they weren’t posting, were they? (maybe that’s what juxt.. means)December 19, 2011 12:50 am at 12:50 am #835853JotharMember

That’s worth a +1 to your original post.
