I received a complaint about MaxPen's avatar as being violation of the rule against political statements. In channels outside the forum, Max said he does not intend to log in to change it and doesn't care what I do. Lacking other options, he is suspended until he requests to come back and then shortly after changes it.

would a picture of a snowflake be a violation of the rules?

For awhile there I thought yours was two partial human skulls facing away from each other.

It's apparently the ass of a plastic garden gnome.



I happen to have a mooning gnome in my backyard. Personally, I'm okay with it. I believe they have shown Bart mooning people on the Simpsons before. If others feel strongly against EB's avatar, let me know.

I could give a gnomes rear about the avatar in the abstract. But context matters. Management demanded that political avatars be removed. When he changed his image, Bob selected a picture of a mooning figure. It's hard to see how that isn't meant as an insult to management.

Speaking for myself only, I can take a friendly jab, which is how I interpreted it.

I understand

But the Avatar change was because this forum was becoming vindictive with left and right political posts.

There was a lot of insults being hurled.

The original Avatar was a trump face designed to tick off people against trump. His change to an ass can only feel directed towards more than the management

After so many were offended by the Trump face to choose another image designed to offend seems like a slap in the face.

With the other people posting against his Avatar I don't think I am alone in my opinion

I like EvenBobís avatar. Two mods have weighed in and arenít offended. I think thatís really the end of it, since the complaint is that itís an ďinsult to management.Ē Whatevs.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.
