The problem of the smileys is a political one. No matter how it looks like, this is a programming site where people are meant to be writing codes.
Smileys may start messing up codes, besides, do you put smileys inside your codes to make it readable? No.

Golang sample:
Code:
package main import ( "fmt" "github.com/golang/example/stringutil" ) func main() { fmt.Println(stringutil.Reverse("!selpmaxe oG ,olleH")) }

This is what the whole site is about. Yeah, it may have a social feature but its primary purpose remains the same.

Show expression on a programming board? That is unusual, programmers are nano-bots that just code and code and code. See time now, normal human beings are sleeping, while we are prowling the WWW like vampires.

The truth about smileys is that, it will conflict a programming site. Imagine now, I am writing a tutorial teaching people how to code smileys with PHP and the smileys start displaying instead of the code - that will cause a conflict.

And this I suspect is the reason why the great stackoverflow does not use smileys.
