    I'd change my avatar to a dolphin but I'm quite fond of my lighthouse. If it was up to me everyone would be required to have an animated avatar.

    tursiops, this thread seems to indicate your avatar should be disapproval turtle instead of a dolphin anyways

    I can attest that some on SB are not fans of having their avatars poached.

    Especially if 5 or 6 friends change their avatar to the same one and "happen to post in the same exact threads as that person, alot".

    It was fun to do for a short period but usually we stopped. Usually.

    Does your employer know you are a whistle blower?

    If this is not against the rules, beyond the 'be nice' one, it should be. But better would be not needing it to be spelled out. Are we acting as if we're 12, or 5?

    @tursiops did you create your avatar from one of your own photos? If so you could argue copyright infringement.

    No, I did not use one of my photos. Who would of thought it would be necessary?
    Next time. But I have no confidence that the guy cares about copyright.

    That would be an entertaining court case
