Got an idea that technically works much better as a metaphor, but I can reword the title as a simile if I must. Are all the grammar police going to ding me if I don't use "like" or "as" in the title?

96% of the voters won't know the difference. I promise that I won't discriminate against metaphors.

for shame... what if the the next challenge is "metaphor"? ;-)

i think you should keep with the actual definition and required content/form of the word "simile"

Was it just me or did anyone else first read the challenge as a SMILEY FACE challenge...thinking that smiley was just spelled incorrectly maybe.
