    Two things to keep in mind:

    1. As a general rule, we don't want to be any more restrictive that is absolutely necessary.
    2. It isn't ok for people to go out of their way to try and inflame select individuals or entire groups of individuals out of some type of sport or meanness.

    Ok.... In keeping with this train of thought here TNed, i'm thinking that...

    Well, lets all be honest here. This is all about Beef's Che Gueveara sig.

    Now that Beef MUST remove his sig Escobar is free to proudly display Che all he wants. This is clearly meant to inflame posters, most specifically Beef, so would it not in essence be against these rules for Che to appear in sigs and avys at all?

    This clearly is the point of Escobar, and clearly was the reason Beef put the pic in his sig in the first place. Since this sig and avy is intended for no other reason than to inflame the Non-Communists on this board it should not be allowed.

    exactly.. I turn off sigs and avatars because it slows down the loading times.
    So really I dont even notice it. As far as the pics I dont care either way.
    As far as the minority/majority thing. I agree completely as long as people dont Intentioally try to hurt another person. Which I think is out of common courtesy, and in this case it seemed it was intended to do just that.

    Personally I don't think this is community issue. It about two individuals attempting to annoy each other. (I am not taking sides) The image in question isn't something that wouldn't make the 6 o'clock news or front page of newspaper, so I don't have an issue with it.

    I think the little I know of the board, the mods can recognize those images that are to graphic to be displayed and ask the them to removed.

    My vote is not to censor the images as a whole.

    Valid point but i think a tombstone or a che picture with a slash through it would suffice for what that purpose. A dead body just isnt appropriate to make that statement.

    keep in mind that to say he did "good" things or "bad" is really buried in the opinions of fellow members....

    Its 2 different opinions clashing here that spawned all of this. If i wanted to be an offensive person i would have a pic of George Bush with a red line thru it... solely based on my opinion of him...

    Opinions are like coconuts, ...................

    Than beef needs to find another means of representing his dislike of Che. Not that hard really.

    I am a Bush supporter (not of everything he has or hasn't done)but I did
    vote for him both times...if you had a pic of him with a red line through it,I
    wouldn't care at all.That wouldn't bother most people on here that support him...if any at all.

    BTW-Opinions are like coconuts? I have heard of them being
    like something else but not coconuts.

    I didn't think Beef's sig pic was bad...to me it looked like a drawing of some sorts.I do agree with what Davii posted in his last post. #31

    This is such a ridiculous arguement! For Pete's sake...if you don't like what people put in their sigs and avatars, turn them shits off.

    No. Your sig is violent. What Mr. McCaffrey did to that defenseless man was horrible.
