I can't visit GM during work specifically because of the avatars and the potential for shoulder surfing employees to be offended, so I am not sure I'd be for it here either.

I know they can be disabled, but it just sound like hassle.

I think it's safe to say that if implemented, NSFW avs would be strictly forbidden

Totally no nsfw avatars and nothing close to it. No animal sex organs, etc.
Yes, but then we'll get dried plums that look like sacs and all other forms of disturbing yet not quite NSFW material. People will use 100 meg files for their avatars to purposely slow loading. All kinds of other assine tricks will be played. There will be arguements over what's good and what's bad and people will get pissy. Overall, its extra queries to the db, extra space/bandwidth usage on the server (if we host), and extra bandwidth used for everyone regardless of host just to load up a thread.

Those are the reasons not to do it. If there are reason for having them that outweigh that, then I'm open to hearing them.

All avatars do is suck up more bandwidth and threaten the integrity of the internet.

For serios.

That and they're cliche and stuff.
