Jitsi chat interface converts special characters to emoticons/emojis

Hello,

In the jtisi web interface, when code/command is shared/pasted in the chat, and if it contains (special characters ) like these - :confused: or :blush: or :@

It converts them to emoticons/emojis.

Is there a solution for this?

As this becomes quite troublesome when discussing/sharing code in the chat.

thanks
Ragini

even here the special characters are converted to emoticons.

I meant : / (without space in between)

thanks
Ragini
