    My brother made me this avatar. Does this fall under animated avatars and has to be rendered illegal?

    I'm a huge perv, but..

    Boobs are cheesy and make it even harder to be on Ferrari chat at work!

    Moving gives me a headache.

    This reminds me of TV. Allow me to explain. Late night on TV in the USA is the usual of some good, some not so good shows. In Italy, Brazil, and other places there is plenty of "soft" porn for free. As the Internet is a world marketplace it is hard to have one person's beliefs thrust upon another. Think of how the bars within Bible Belt in the USA differs from, say, Los Angeles. Within reason, moving avatars are fine (including bouncing boobs). Showing penetration is another story, yet this is MY PERSONAL preference and it IS NOT for me to dictate what is "right" or "wrong". It just "is". In the end what REALLY matters is that we all...

    Enjoy the Drive (RHCP "Around The World" right now),

    "...I know I know for sure
    That life is beautiful around the world
    I know I know it's you
    You say hello and then I say I do...

    Fox hole love
    Pie in your face
    Living in and out
    Of a big fat suitcase ...

    Around the world
    I feel dutiful
    Take a wife
    'Cause life is beautiful...

    Mother Russia do not suffer
    I know you're bold enough
    I've been around the world
    And I have seen your love
    I know I know it's you

    You say hello then I say I do"

    Under user options you can choose to not view avatars of images, it's in the "thread view" area.

    Why are moving avatars a problem? I spent some considerable time stealing this one from another board!

    Honestly though, if moving avatars are a problem, I will delete mine.

    OK,

    Boobs no! Like I've said, most of us are all pervs, so how does that show your personality? 80% of the traffic on this site is from work places. Many kids come to this site too. Also, how many female users do we actually have? I wonder why. It's patetic how we act and scare good female Ferrari enthusiasts off.

    I don't mind bikini threads or even your battle of the animated boobs, as long as there's a descriptive title that warns people.

    Animations, hmm, animations of chicks for sure no. I think the racing one and the Daytona ones are good, but the problem with avatars is they're distracting when reading a thread.

    I expect everyone to remove their boob/chick avatars animated or not. I'm not going to be flexible on that. However, I will think through the other animations after more discussion.

    Thanks.

    Well, we should remember that the lack of moving pictures in the left margin will annoy nobody, while the presence of moving pictures will annoy many... even if they are not the majority.

    But I suppose those of us annoyed by it can just block out posts from those who have moving avatars. But then the missing posts might get annoying... not sure.

    And then there's the extra overhead for people with low-powered machines... not sure about that (I never have low powered machines since computers are my job).
