Messages for Mac should not auto replace "O(n)" with emoji "OğŸ‘Ž".

Software engineers often discuss runtime efficiency with the Big-O notation. This auto replacement is unexpected to users and often lead to confusion in conversations.

Users can already pick emojis with the Control + Command + Space key combination or through the Touch Bar. There's no good reason for this text replacement to be built into macOS.
