for ams288, and for general information :

As part of the "no politics rule", we have asked via PM, all those whose avatars are based in political themes, to change them. However, ams288 has his PM receipts turned off, so I don't know of any other way to notify him than to do it publicly.

ams288 has been on the board each of the last several days, including today, so I expect he will see this. I hope that he will acknowledge with a thank you or a post in return, but I'm starting the 48 hour clock for him (which the others are also under) at the time of this post.

The "no politics rule" includes signatures, avatars, headings, and posts. Thank you ams288, and all of you, for respecting and complying with the policy.

I think if this board also does not allow profanity in words like use of the word "@$$" then it should also be off limits for an Avatar to actually be a person's physical "@$$"

If I can't say it, I certainly should not be physically exposed to the images

So I assume EB was one of those asked to remove political content from his Avatar.

When I was young (and this is after EB was young so he is aware I am sure) when authority asked you to do something you didn't want you did it while turning your ass to them and slapping it. A way of saying I did comply but I still don't respect you and you can kiss my ass.

EB has basically chosen to replace his Avatar with a naked image of an ass pointing at all the forum members. This can't be mistaken as anything other than an insult to the forum and the mods in particular

The change came directly after the request the mods have now been told to kiss his ass

If an image is worth a thousand words then this is basically a thousand insults

I think you can use the word ass because it's used in the Bible, that's per Mike's rules.

It looks like a close-up of some kind of nut or piece of barley or something I cannot make out acting like it is something else.

Can we rename this thread to “New avatar guidelines” or something? It’s creeping me out.

Heh. With your new Pennywise avatar staring at me, I have to wonder if you're being ironic.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.
