You'll have to forgive redsaber's rudeness in your introduction, Hashasheen. He really should tone it down a bit.
As for your question, were you trying to quote me or post a smiley? If not disabled, smileys automatically generate tiny images here on PC - which are, themselves, URLs. Just the same as images and links, they cannot be posted. A little annoying, but you'll forget all about it once you get 15 posts. ^^
