    Slight parsing / order of operations error?

    Not sure if this is really a "bug" or caveat... but, it defies regular expressions,
    so I am assuming it's an "order of operations" thing or possibly poor tokenizer
    associated with the board itself.

    In an earlier post (sorry, haven't found the thread yet - new DSL line isn't
    in and I'm still suffering on dial-up again), I typed:

    colon rofl colon close-paren

    ...lex or yacc or something might have noticed the close-paren as matching
    to something earlier in the sentence and thusly "cancelled it out." But, what
    seems to have happened is the colon close-paren were matched first
    as a smiley face and the colon rofl colon were hung out to dry.


    There's probably a few of them though...

    (Yes I realize there's a "disable smilies" button... but that also kills as far as I know)
