    Oh, my bad. I just figured... you know, the monkey thing and all...

    I'm not sure ravishing is a good look for a dude but, hey, who am I to judge?

    Insertion BRING BACK THE AVATAR!

    Where is the line and who is the judge?

    If I find images of monsters offensive, will the mods remove them all? Seriously, they offend me. Any green cartoon-like image makes my skin crawl, especially if they are shirtless and have an eye on their forehead! Absolutely disgraceful. I should not be subjected to such imagery.

    Hmmm.....wait a second.....Anyone who doesn't like it can turn them off and not see it??? What a concept!

    On behalf of AOL-loyalists worldwide, your avatar is offensive, Joe.

    That aside, I agree with your post entirely.

    When I say "offensive", I am asking about serious sore points. Like racist or perhaps explicit(like that toilet site) or inflammatory avatars. Those could set off some people. Howard Forums allows some explicit avatars, I've noticed. Like the OP, I'm just wondering what the policy for TC is too.
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    As kram said:
    "Our policy is to remove offensive avatars with mods making the decision as to what is offensive (although it's inline with what any reasonable person would see as such). In my experience, people are more than willing to comply if asked nicely."

    we do it on a case by case system and use common sense and the general guidelines.
    It certainly isnt a anything goes system..

    Hope that answers your question..

    Of course, offense is in the eye of the beholder. Had I seen the avatar in question a week ago, I would have thought was just another concoction of "he who shall remain nameless." However, on Monday I got my first peek at the "cartoons of chaos" and had a context for the selected avatar of "he who shall remain nameless"

    If there was any offense taken, it is not from the image. The image is clearly the all-to-familiar-to-TCers primate in its latest get-up. The offense lies in the assumption of the thinking behind the image's use.

    I would like to thank all of those who expressed their opinions in response to my original inquiry. I would like to mention that “insertion” was not the target of this thread, I wanted TC (that is why I originally posted in TC forum) to state their policy.
    Many of the contributions that were serious and on-topic were insightful. I think that since TC has stated their position Post#48 we can close this thread. I hate to see it being turned into “your datebk is better than my agendus” threads.
    Thanks to all of you and special thanks to insertion for being a soldier and a team player. Go Army Hoah

    All of you need to stop switching avatars. My avatar is becoming more offensive to me.

    And are you Jewish because of your religion or are you Jewish because your people are actually descended from the orginal people that lived in Caanan? There is a HUGE DIFFERENCE. I personally have a problem with anyone claiming Israel as a homeland who are of European descent and converted to the religion Judasim. Those people have the same claim to the LAND in Israel as I do as a Christian, (NONE). Now if your people actually CAME from Israel/Palenstine/Caana (we could go on and on...) and you are seeking a return, nonwithstanding the religious reasons of why you were DRIVEN out in the first place, I apologize. But given that there are approximately 5.2 million Ashkenazi Jews in America, I'm inclined to believe that your ancestors somewhere in Europe converted to Judasim and now your acting as if you are the same people that inhabitated Caanan. That's just plain wrong. If we start classifying groups of people according to their religion then I am quite sure that Christians and Muslims will have longer and more impressive lists as well.
    When the dark clouds gather on the horizon, when thunder and lightning fills the sky, When fate is but a glint in the eye of a fallen Rattler, And hopes are lost friends, When the sinew of the chest grows weary from those hard-charging linebackers, And the muscles in the legs grow tired from those hard-charging running backs ... You must remember that the Rattlers will... Strike, Strike, and Strike again.

    Having lived in Israel for 8 years, allow me to endeavor to shed some light on this matter.

    1) There has never been a country called Palestine. There was a British Mandated territory called Palestine, which had both Jews and Arabs living there. Jews have lived in Israel since time immemorial.

    2) The UN voted in 1948 to partition that mandate into two states, Palestine and Israel, exactly what you describe below. The Arab world refused to accept that and chose to go to war, hoping to get in conflict what they could not by peaceful means. Having lost that war and the others that took place, they now have the audacity to claim they are victims.

    3) The previous and current Palestinian leadership has advocated for the destruction of the State of Israel, which means murdering or expelling all the Israelis. Do you think that we will just go to slaughter like our parents and their families did in WWII?

    4) Former Prime Minister Barak offered the Palestinians much of what you describe below at Camp David. Not only did Arafat not accpet this solution, but he launched the Intifada, which in fact had already been planned in advance.

    5) How come there is no peace movement in any of the Arab countries like you have in Israel with the Peace Now movement? How come there have never been protests in the Arab world or in the Palestinian world, pushing their leaders to negotiate for peace.

    Lastly, at the end of the day, choosing Hamas for the Palestinians will be like going from the frying pan into the fire. This "government" will bring them more bloodshed, death, destruction, economic hardship, religious fanaticism, and misery.

These people have been fighting to get there homeland back! Israel is a UN mandated state, which in fact, sits right on top of............................Palestine!! Sure they should try and work their differences out a little more peacefully. But these are desperate people, that do desperate things. Back before the American revolution we could have easily been labeled terrorists, in fact we were also called insurgents. My belief is they should split Israel in half, giving the south to the Palestinians, and the north to the Zionists. Leaving Jerusalem in the middle to be governed by the UN. I bet that would go a long way to cure some of the ills of that area.
