Is it a female gnome butt? Or a male gnome butt?

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

When EB changed his avatar, I saw it as a defiant attempt to moon at the moderators and all members. But then it occurred to me that an avatar is meant to portray or represent EvenBob.
If EvenBob wants to represent or portray himself as an ass then, as I see it, the joke's on him. So I let it go.
I do see that others are offended.
I suggest to Wizard that he take steps to remove or replace any avatar at his discretion and I nominate EB's avatar as an early candidate.
Take care out there. Spare a thought for the newly poor who were happy in their world just a few days ago, but whose whole way of life just collapsed..

What exactly is the rule about avatars?
I guess they can't political or offensive? I guess it doesn't really matter what it is, it matters what a certain percentage of people think it represents? Would it matter if it's picture garden gnomes ass or a picture real females ass? I thought it was a picture of a real persons ass, I assumed it was a guys. Is a picture of an ass appropriate, does it fall under that keep it PG rule? What if somebody had an avatar of a turquoise dress with a frontal bulge in it, would that be inappropriate or considered a political statement?

I can't believe that somebody went out of their way to complain about an avatar of somebody that's not even posting anymore. I think people should be able to have any Avatar they want, within reason.
But, if you want to be fair, I think Bob should have to remove it.

EB is still posting. He just got over Covid-19

Well, since having an ass as an avatar is OK, I'm joining the club!

If we are going to regulate out EB's avatar, where does it stop? It goes down a slippery slope as then most anything can be construed as political. I feel strongly that it should stay.

Your Avatar of a black man is offensive. *joke*

But seriously naked ass is considered offensive in most public places.

This is a public forum.(with a ban on profanity no less)

I don't see a slippery slope here

This is an adult centric forum, theoretically Las Vegas based, where we have had open discussions on prostitution, drugs, etc.... Bob's avatar is stupid, but really, who really gives a frick? If he likes it, let him keep it.

I think it only stops at what the management of the site says. I don't think rules are necessary and the management can take down anything they don't like. We are just guests here with free will not to read or post here.

that slope already slipped when they made people take down avatars in the first place. I can't believe people are offended about a Putin Avatar and a flag. I really don't think anybody was truly offended, I think they just wanted to piss off the people they didn't like.
