Is it really necessary to allow nude avatars?
 
I know you can turn them off but a good portion of the people here surf from work and some of these have gone a bit to far, if you ask me. Its one thing to have a clothed ass, but a mostly nude ass, well I don't see why that is necessary. I'm seeing more and more, such as this one.

Ummmm...
I think you answered your own question: Turn them off when you're at work.

Why does something have to be necessary? People choose those avatars because that's what they want.

I love nude asses btw.

You know, I don't do this often, but I agree with Sillyeagle. I don't mean any disrespect to anyone, but I too surf from work, and people come by my office alot.

I don't mean to put anyone on the spot, but there should be some type of guideline.

Not only that, do the people that have little kids want their children to see this? I'm not trying to turn this into a flame war, all I'm asking is for you (that have them) use a little moderation, please.

There is moderation by not allowing people to have anything they want as an avatar.

To a degree. They know if they did that, a mod would ask them to remove the picture.

I'm asking for a little more consideration.

My opinion means nothing to the next member. All I'm doing is asking for people to consider something more than just themselves.

I haven't seen any avatar here that's any worse than any other tech oriented forum.

I don't think thats the point that DD is trying to get across. We could compare it to the playboy forum and we might not have as many nude avs, but there are quite a few that are risqué. I'm not going to argue that some of the avs are a little over the top. It's one of those things that are funny with other guys, but not necessarily everyone else that might see the forums.

I was thinking this the other day as I saw yet another avatar w/some TnA, I don't mind it but all it takes is one time and a person could get fired these days. I enjoy seeing peoples avatars I really do but we already have a thread for "Babes" (which I totally avoid at work). The decision of course is left to MikeC and his moderation team.

Though I guess I would have to get rid of the avatar of my ****...

In my eyes, there simply is no issue at hand. Really don't see how this even compares to even your garden variety commercial you see on TV on a daily basis.

I mean what's next? You gonna start complaining that I got a pentagram as my profile picture?

Get the **** over yourselves.
