    Does one ever get a reply to reports?

    Only the individual in question recieves notice if action is taken. The person who reported it is not notified of our decision.

    You can block the image if you don't like it, although I can't remember how exactly to do it.

    No, I meant there is a way to block just that 1 avatar, not all. IIRC it may only work with some browsers though.

    Why is avatarifying and displaying the SS emblem any more horrid than other avatar schemes? Communism and Islam have been fairly destructive, yet there isn't there an outcry against people who include the emblems of such organizations in their avatar. If you are going to make such a sweeping and blanketing move, you should at least include all violent avatars/ avatars that are related to violence.

    Or, you know, we could just not censor it.

    Certainly. We can't have children learning how to fight from our furry friends. ;)

    It means I'm a super cool person, and I'm letting everyone know. What's SuperStar mean to you? :confused:

    Yeah, but you still spend lots of time whinging about them.

    Why don't you just leave permanently?

    Hitro actually has a nice little system going. He shows up intermittently, has a little spam fest with his buddy Xen, and never gets any punishment because by the time he returns to do it again his infractions have probably expired!

    That reminds me about something hmm...:mischief:

    Anyway, this thread certainly isn't about any individual poster including Hitro or is it?

    Said posters have gotten their due when it came up. Anyway, the question isn't about these posters but about said avatars. Considering if a policeman in Germany (or was it Austria?) were to find someone posting and saw that icon, they'd get in trouble (I'm exaggerating...I hope).

    But I personally find them inappropriate, even if it isn't on any kind of punishable level...but it's not my place to decide that. "Superstar" or not. Jesus Christ Superstar is better.
