^^ this is NOT okay to go to messages via rsyslog .. (and grep for unicode characters in systemd code, there are many of them on various places)
I understand that teenage devels with IQ > 150 and experience in IT industry < 2 yrs won't agree with me, but please, consult that with some older and more experienced colleague (or any other responsible adult you have avail around there) if you're in doubts .. I'm tired to explain, that logs should be ascii plaintext and that they are very often parsed in industry by stupid old tools that choke on your sexy (and cunning) unicode ..
Moreover, if you involve unicode, you have no right to discriminate emojis .. involve them too, it's unfair to them ..
ps. before (some of) you will curse me or even let your head explode from endless anger on how I could dare, just try answering for yourself the very simple question: why LITERALY none of opensource industry standards starting from kernel, going through apache and various *sql incarnations to system infrastructure tools like rsyslog or isc bind use unicode (or emojis - haha) in their log outputs ..
I assume you mean "other than syslog."
