And what should we do about emojis

For me, if we could opt to replace them with words that'd be something. I prefer on Slack to see :slightly-smiling-face: than I do to see a picture. This is because I don't know what half of them are supposed to mean. It's difficult for people with poor eyesight, devices with different emoji or who have trouble understanding emotional responses.
