And what if I still want them in *intentional* parts of my post? This doesn't solve the problem.

Try making a new thread and look at the bottom; there's normally like 3-4 tick boxes... See what they say
If nothing there, maybe suggest it as an addition to the NulledBB 3.0 Theme!
Thanks and have a good day ^^.
The only problem with this is that the smilies are NOT based on a specific MyBB theme, it's a global set of icons for all themes. Point is you would be suggesting me to wait for the new theme for something that is going to be a global change anyways.
These suggestions don't solve the problem really. Additionally, even if I IMG tag emoticons in my post, now if a new image replaces an old image for a smiley with a new filename the image is broken. Tags associated with smilies are not affected by this because they are linked to an image path and parsed at page load.
Look at the majority of other MyBB forums and see what the replacement text is for smilies. They are probably more often than not, *unique*, and there's a reason for that; so that a member can decide where and when they want smilies in their post without it being an all or nothing option.
The checkbox is a bandaid fix.
