    What is offensive is just a line drawn 'somewhere'. It is an interesting question though ;-)
    Palm III-->Palm IIIxe-->Palm 505-->Samsung i300-->Treo 600-->PPC 6600-->Treo 650-->Treo 700wx-->BB Pearl--> BB Curve

    I'm sorry. Was it the skidmark? I meant no disrespect to any smiley faces either living or dead.

    On behalf of smiley faces everywhere: How rude!
    Palm V-->Visor Deluxe-->Visor Prism-->Visorphone-->Treo 180-->Treo 600-->Treo 650 on Sprint-->Treo 700p-->Centro-->Diamond-->Pre-->HTC EVO 4g???!

    I don't know what the policy is. But ones that spew some type of hatred against people of any group would be considered offensive, I would think. Also certain symbols. Seriously graphic and gross also. Fortunately, no one has posted anything stupid like that yet. Although didn't someone used to post a link to a graphic toilet site? Now that might make some people unhappy.
    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!

    I like this definition, although offensive is subjective when a large group agrees on something being offensive then it just is.
    The avatar Franko pointed is an example of one that inspires hatred and displays disrespect, similar to a swastika or a KKK symbol would.

    A depiction of a historical figure seems far removed from a representation of ethnic cleansing. If we use the argument that worshipping false idols and representations of such are to be banned, other religious groups (those that found all symbols as representations of false idols) on this site could easily request the removal of depictions of American flags and other symbols. Perhaps the avatar in question would be removed/modified if someone who found it offensive simply indicated that they found it so.....
    I've heard that polar bear steaks are tough, but maybe if you marinated them in beer they'd turn out all right.

    This is what offends me:

    I dont support religiously motivated terrorism. I do support people fighting for their home-land whichever way they can. If this means blowing up busses and restaurants to make Israel less palatable for the Jewish immigrants, so be it. If they did not want a fight they should not have stolen the land. If it means slitting some-one's throat on TV to make foreign contractors think twice before entering Iraq and providing logistical support to American troops and their collaborators, so be it.

    And heberman, your cannibalistic avatar offends me.

    (and the avatar will be removed later, unless a Mod does it first.)

    Why does it offend you so? Sure blowing up innocents is/are never good. I think the US refers to it as 'collateral damage', or is it OK only when we(the United States) does it? 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.

    Collateral Damage is tragic, but they're NOT the target. What does a little kid who probably has no idea what Hamas is, and is just eating a piece of pizza, or is in its stroller sleeping doing that deserves to get blown up? He is not collateratal damage, but a target.

    It's sad that you would support this, but I'm no longer surprised.

    (and if you want to continue this topic, please do so in the other thread, but I'm so disgusted by Sururs anti-Semitism, that I'm no longer participating.)

    Blowing up civilians is never good. Blowing up civilians deliberately to achieve a political goal is evil.

    I do not support it (violence), I support the fact of them trying to get their homeland back. Sure a kid eating pizza has no choice in the matter, but I guess they would view it as collateral damage? Who are they to attack if not the settlers themselves? I would favor a more peaceful means. I don't support violence in any fashion. Just a question, why if someone does not support an Israeli state, are they anti-semetic? It is kinda like saying since you don't support Bush, you are un-american, it doesn't fit.

    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.
