No, I saw a recent one with the same avatar.  I guess you and I are in a minority. I find it just gross, and I am not one to be easily offended.

For what it's worth, I'm with you two in that minority.  I find that particular avatar very grating.  I don't necessarily find it offensive, just extremely . . . I don't know, annoying, I guess, is the word.  I actually can't read that person's posts at all; I find myself quickly scrolling past to get it off the screen.  And before everyone jumps up to tell me you can make it stop by hitting "escape," I know that - but there's a good chance that will stop it with the tongue sticking out, which irks me.
All those with two, draw one.  All those with none, turn one in.

Have any of you considered PMing the person rather than talking about her here?
Wherever you go.... there you are.

Gotta go POD on this one.
 
The avatar has apparently been reported and probably deemed not offensive or disruptive.

And I don't think its fair to that poster to talk about it like this.

I agree. Tell her your feelings and let her decide if she wants to change it or not.

re:avatars

Since this forum is one of the sites that isn't yet blocked at work, I keep my view of this forum to text only.  You can turn off whether you see somebody else's avatars.
