I'm still of the opinion that if there is a chance of viewing the pics at an awkward time that you should turn the avatars off. That doesn't seem any more unreasonable than people having to get rid of those avatars altogether. Why should people have to censor their avatars if the avatar is a reflection of them and their interests? I have no problem with people expressing themselves.
