Should people be allowed to use ugly avatars?

    Some of the avatars (aka "profile pix") used on RJ are terribly offensive. I've seen people using pets, bulbs filled with piss, psychedelic Easter bunnies, corporate logos -- and, oh, yeah, don't forget pick-up trucks and other modes of transportation. Most of them are truly ugly and offend my sensitive aesthetics. The people who use them are obviously just trolling, thumbing their noses at the rest of us, especially those who have real face pix representing who we actually are and what we actually look like in RL.

    I have to say though, as ugly, insulting and annoying as all of them are (and some of them truly suck) these three are the WORST:

    I don't care what image a person uses. I care about getting rid of all these sock account. The light bulb dude and the purple bunny (Immunity) are all sock accounts and should be deleted immediately. The truck thing was a protest of solidarity for those who were opposed to Immunity stealing David's photo and posting it to Tumblr.

    Oh, god, not to open that whole bag of shit again, my understanding is Immunity *did* post the pic to tumblr but he did not *steal* it… it was given to him (and others) by another, now banned, RJ member who had been given it by David himself. Now, do I have those facts wrong?

    yes

    apparently the number of us that give a fuck is almost non existent--should use our penis pics as avatars; turn the site to shit faster.

    Are you agreeing that it doesn't matter or disagreeing? Based off your aviator I'd say you're agreeing.

    I think it's more important how they conduct themselves rather than what picture they use to represent themselves

    Of course you're absolutely right… In the big picture who gives a fuck, right?

    But your reply begs an interesting question...in the context of RJ, what really DOES matter? … That question isn't really directed at you, jo2, I'm just wondering about it. What does matter?

    What matters is how people conduct themselves and whether they respect one another. Not everyone has to agree with everyone else but they should respect others points of view.

    People can disagree and get a little carried away and out of hand but so what let them get it off their chests and move on. Gave the same ground rules for yourself. You set and expect of others, so many people get pissed at others for doing exactly they themselves do in their very next post.

    Reporting should be the very last resource used half the reporting going on is so childish and simply used as retaliation rather than as intended

    I care about the conducts more than the avatar. Some people may have gorgeous face pic and are even verified but they constantly make others feel like trash. Some just wait for their rivals to say something just so they can insert their foot in their rivals' mouth, not caring about what the thread is about. And yes, trolls and sock accounts are truly annoying. icon_mad.gif

    I'm a fairly new member here (less than a year), but RJ now is getting worse than about 6 months ago when I joined. icon_sad.gif

    If the person isn't trolling or stealing pics, I don't see the problem.

    Scruffypup saidNo, but he is currently making threats to D3K as we speak through private messages from his sock account Notoriouslyme. This site had better do something about assholes like this or it's doomed.
    That is a slanderous LIE!!! I have no private messages to anybody by the name of D3K.

    It was stealing because David limited the copy of the picture to the obese black man. Further distribution of it was unauthorized and therefore stolen. At every turn, you have defended the virtual rapists under supposed "facts."

    What "turns" are you talking about? Looks pretty clear to me: One person does something that even he now realizes was stupid as fuck and a bunch of dumb asses spread the stupidity, ultimately to you. I think there is PLENTY of blame to go around here, WOODY. icon_rolleyes.gif

    woodsmen said^ I am blameless. David has already expressed that he does not view am to blame for that mess. If I didn't uncover the virtual assault perpertrated on David, the virtual rapists will continue to laugh and distribute the picture. That is what you are defending.
    Where am I "defending" anything? Quote where I have defended ANY of this mess. You've changed your story at least twice now and keep trying to distance yourself from the whole flap, often leaving your piece of it completely out. WE SAW THE PMs.

    You keep saying I'm "defending a rapist"… this is hyperbolic and damn close to libel. Quote any text where I "defend a rapist". icon_rolleyes.gif

    As for your own "innocence" don't worry, none of us think you have a prurient bone in your trousers. icon_rolleyes.gificon_rolleyes.gificon_rolleyes.gif

    Yours are THE exception that proves the rule. I like the neon shark and I liked the one before this one, too.

    You blame David here: "The fact of the matter is, though, that D3K *willingly* shared a picture with someone on the internet," instead of the rapists as if David was asking for it. And the other matter which you continue to intimate blame is that if I didn't uncover what the rapists did how would this have been uncovered? Even the obese black man to whom David gave the picture even denied distributing the picture at first.
    SO… you don't think D3K should take ANY responsibility for the stupidity of sharing his naked pix with Misfit Toy? I don't believe even David has that opinion. I'm pretty sure he knows just how STUPID that was.

    Now as for the "rapist"…Immunity… putting the picture on tumblr… WOULD HE HAVE DONE THAT IF YOU HADN'T ASKED TO SEE IT?… In your parlance, would the rapist have raped if you hadn't asked him to??

    I guess we'll never know, now, Woody, but not to worry, you're as clean and innocent as the driven snow.

    woodsmen said^ Yeah, immunity did say he put it on the internet only for me. And you believed him. Got it. I typically don't find rapists credible.

    I think this continual use of the term "rapist" in this affair is wildly overheated.

    Yeah, and I typically don't find people who over-state their argument, minimize--and in some instances actually leave out--their role in a "rape", particularly credible, either.
