Please disallow drug pictures in avatars. TNX.
(Also I would guess such pictures are NSFW, in most companies.)

You have AdBlock installed, right? Block his/her avatar. It's just a couple of clicks.

Its probably not going to be a rule[1], but you might just block[2] it.

All the support to you, but I don't think that avatar is "not safe for work -NSFW" he had a discussion here : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1011789.0  ([Serious] Avatar Rules Discussion) and theymos has replied :

bigbitmine and El Emperador's avatars are fine IMO.

This is the two users:

- https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=358121
- https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=222075

Maybe you can ask to that user if he can remove the avatar (or better change it with another one). Good luck.

I think such an avatar was not allowed as per theymos post over what is allowed as avatar. Since Methamphetamine are obviously NSFL (Not Safe for Life), IMO such an avatar like smaragda one is not allowed here. Also, smaragda avatar image seems to have taken from a Crystal meth image hosted on wikimedia and used on Wikipedia Methamphetamine page.

I agree that heavy drugs avatars should not be allowed on the forum.

as theymos said, he might do something if he receives several complaints about an avatar. I think this particular avatar will draw quite a few complaints.

Is Monero NSFL (Not Safe For Life)?  Grin

It depends of our personal point of view, but we can agree that monero isn't NSFL so all the avatars related to monero are good.

Yes, I lost a lot of money in Monero. It's NSFL for me.


*My point is to show how absurd is his request. It's not about Monero specifically. Even he has Bitcoin logo in his avatar, I'd give same answer. I don't support that kind of censorship in avatars.

I don't like such images but it's better to ignore the user whose avatar you don't appreciate and like. I don't think it is NSFW though.

You can also use the "ignore" button, it ignores the user, and doesn't show his avatar, signature, or posts. The downside to it though, is that you won't be able to see any of his posts.

Good luck on your recovery!

Good luck with your recovery but would go with the Ignore feature to avoid triggering the urge
As for avatars in general re-enabling them and letting them go fairly free means drugs are ok as images

Crystal Meth? Understandable. Marijuana? Not so understandable. And marijuana is ranked in the same class of controlled substance as crystal meth (Schedule 1) While I can see your point OP, I am a recoving opiate addict. I take suboxone daily for my addiction. But everytime I see a OC80 or a Opana, I still want to do it, but have the sell worth and control to not "fixate" to much on it and let it go. Sure, I love seeing pictures of piles of pills that people has, that's the drug of choice where I'm from. I don't think images of drugs should be moderated. Just my opinion.

If someone's avatar is seriously offending someone I think it should at least be considered to be removed. This isn't the darknet or anything, there's still rules to this shit. As everyone's opinion is subjective, some avatars will be approved by some people while rejected by others. At least for me I think it would be in bad taste to let people have avatars of illicit drugs when there are people complaining about it. I don't really care what measures can be taken to hide the avatar by the person alone as there's probably other people who find it offensive. I would personally request to have the user change it, unless it's really that important to have an avatar like that as your profile picture for everyone to see.

Interesting topic...  I had no idea avatars had such powers.

I guess we can all safely assume that dewdeded isn't fully recovered yet.  A fully recovered addict would pay more attention to the I DO NOT CONSENT right under the avatar.

Not that I don't have compassion for dewdeded...  BUT...  I'm afraid...  I'm gonna have to stick this one out.  I honestly want to see if the Admins & Mods are hypocritical enough to make me remove an avatar...  while they proceed to being indifferent about everyone and their momma getting scammed left & right on this forum.

I wonder if dewdeded needs to provide a court order to have my avatar removed?  Apparently...  that's the only way to get threads removed even for obvious ongoing cases of embezzlement with third party witnesses/confessions...   Roll Eyes

Here we go again..

Today (perhaps as always?) iniquity reigns; righteousness fades.
Trying to maintain a healthy dose of skepticism; even onto my own beliefs. Trying to better my ways.
