    Is there a way, at all, to have a word in quotes -- or even a percent symbol -- inside parentheses without it being converted to a bloody emoticon?

    (Because the problem arises in parenthetical "quotations"😉

    (The percentage of times I encounter this in a post of mine is about 15😵

    Yes, a period will fix things, when it can be applied properly like in my examples above, but most times a period is inappropriate.

    Oh, the minutiae of modern living...

    Just put a space before the closing parenthesis.

    Yeah, that's what I do, but it looks like crap to me. Always has.

    Nowadays "emojis" are copy/pasted in directly, or you can just click on a limited selection available under the Post button. No need for text emojis. Just get rid of text emojis altogether, I say, so we can all use punctuation properly.

    If a fix is simple then please do it.
    (If not simple then I think we can live with it!)
