    I thought I'd try again.

    A while back, a helpful mod thought it would be funny to change my avatar to the pink bunny.. ..just some partisan reaction from the evil csm subforum, but i felt it also affected my other forum posting.

    Here's why you should change it:

    1. Good PR. Mods get caught up in political polemy like anyone, but its not that hard to say, 'sorry, bud.. we'll fix it'.
    2. It is a sign of human respect, to resolve a demeaning act by removing the symbol of ridicule.
    3. It would encourage me that this site is not hopelessly bigoted toward conservatives.

    I no longer post in CSM.. by popular request and returning sanity. But the principle of a mod changing the avatar, even as a joke, goes beyond wittiness, and is in poor taste, especially since it shows up in all my other posts.

    So what do you say? I haven't posted here much, for many reasons, but the pink bunny is a major one, and the stubbornness of the mods to take it back seems mean spirited and overtly prejudicial .

    If you would just remove it for the default, or nothing, I'll get the idea. I'm not wanting an apology, and I'm not mad at anyone. I have several friends who post here, and I'd like to renew communication, without the reminder of politics in the basement.

    Reasonable?

    I can change my avatar at any time. Are you saying that you can't? Or is this about something else perhaps?

    I am petitioning the change back to the pink bunny. I don't know this guy or follow his posts, but I support all trolling efforts. :rofl

    Damn, I bet he doesn't remember the random 24 hour bannings either. You CAN change your avatar at any time in your profile settings.
