I want to send someone a bbm and in that message I plan to be talking about the video game Counter Strike: Source. The short form for this game is CS. BBM always makes the the emoticon (smiley) face with the S shaped mouth.
I feel there should be a way to state that I do not wish that the recipient of this message view my message with the emoticon, but rather they view the raw ascii code.
I can not cite another example off the top of my head, but surely they exist and I am not alone.
To be clear. I do not wish to simply dissable the emoticons on my own phone, but rather wish there was a way to force the recipient of my bbm message to not view a specified emoticon.

There is also a space between the first 2 words... and C S: S just looks stupid.
I was bringing this up in hopes that a solution would be developed. Not to find a quick easy fix. I am not 8 years old, I can find ways around "rules" on my own. Again, surely I am not the only person who has ever run into this issue of the emoticons taking over... And with the world becoming more and more computer literate, Acronyms are starting to catch on more and more. I don't see this problem going away, but steadily becoming more and more persistent.
I simply wish to bring this to RIM's attention. Perhaps this is not the place to do it? Is there somewhere else I can submit a more formal bug report or requested update?
