Haha. Wow, I didn't know so many people offend so easily. Either way it doesn't bother me and it doesn't seem to bother MikeC, it's his forum so I guess ass avatars are ok for now.
As for the work issue, believe me (I know), Turn off avatars althogether, it's not worth the risk.
As I only browse from home, then I say "Love the avatars SLippe and Akbar!"
