    I feel like a liar when i put my vacation symbol up because it has an airplane on it. On my last vacation i drove, so it should have been a car. what if i'm going on a cruise, it should be a boat. i would like to see different options for the vacation symbol. even if your sick, maybe a red cross or something. my mother taught me to be honest, i wish my vacation symbols could reflect that.

    Hm, which part? In all seriousness, having only one symbol makes it easier to recognize it instantly as the vacation symbol. More symbols might be fun for playing around, but they wouldn't add any functionality.

    thats why aol away symbols are so popular, they are FUN. but my idea does have some functionality. and if you cant tell what the diamond shaped yellow sign is than you have problems, no matter what the symbol is. your comments sucked, i thought you were nice. i am shocked and appalled. you see that, shocked AND appalled

    Me, nice? How could you be so mistaken? Don't you know I am a man-hater? Just ask arrakis. So what functionality does your idea have?

    I wouldn't call that "functionality"... And it's not true either, I wouldn't know if you were driving, flying, boating or riding a camel, because you might have chosen the camel just because it looks cool, or because you were riding an elephant, but there was no symbol provided for this case. It would be kind of funny to read things like "will time out opponents unless they are riding a camel" in the profiles, though.
