Common Emoticons Activate Slack Emoji Picker

The :something: emoji picker is “working as intended” here, but I’d advocate a custom behaviour

  • some users prefer :) for them, this interaction is a distraction
  • if one prefers :grinning::smiley::smile::grin:, this isn’t matching that set

Consider filtering ASCII / Unicode punctuation from emoji search, since it’s unlikely that people searching for :emoji description: will employ punctuation in that search.
