How do I remove / block emoticons?

I work in a health organisation. We like HipChat but the (fuckyeah) and (sweetjesus) emoticons are causing problems and I'd like to know how to disable those 2 specifically. 

How can I do this? With thanks,

Unfortunately, there isn't way to disable specific emoticons globally. You can upload a group-specific emoticon on top of the global version by going to which helps resolve issues with the images, but there's no way to remove the shortcuts themselves.

We do have plans to revamp the emoticon options in general, which will offer a greater amount of customization. Those changes are still in design, though, so won't be out particularly soon.

I completely agree. I am having a hard enough time getting our company off of lync, and questionable emoticons like this will give HR plenty of reason to simply say no. Why can't you Atlassian simply remove these two emoticons from global and people who want them can add them manually later.
