    I think it's both beautiful and sad...sad because of the way you have been tortured over the whole situation, but beautiful because you have endured.

    It's hard for me to look at that picture and not reflect on my own life before I had all my issues. Things used to be so much simpler. Look at those 3, so full of life, so full of joy. The world is their oyster!

    They seem oblivious to life's harsh realities, naive to the humiliation one receives when their obvious inadequacies prevent them from just living a regular life.

    It is both beautiful and sad... but this has made me more sad than ever. Tears.

    This is the avatar that Paul Clark has on CR, e.g. it's Paul's wife and kids. Presumably, hfthomp is not Paul Clark.

    Re: Is this picture offensive to anyone?

    I would say it is probably inappropriate to use a picture of someone else's family. Sure, it isn't legal, this is a free country, but maybe you'll have a family some day and you'll realize that people using them to basically taunt you isn't something you appreciate.
    It doesn't have anything to do with one site or another.

    Re: Is this picture offensive to anyone?

    Who says I don't have a family? I have a loving wife and 6 kids and numerous pets. I live on a farm with various other animals as well, horses, cows, goats, sheep. I don't consider those pets though. I consider them food, warmth, and bait.

    I don't know why you feel it is necessary to have his family as your avatar.

    OK, now hfthomp takes away 8 points because I'm not Chizik? Don't get defensive, *****, I wasn't the one taking away your rep points. If you look, I actually gave you some rep points the other night. Punk.

    On a related note.... If you use Firefox and have the Adblock extension, you can adblock images that you don't care see anymore. I've Adblocked a few avitars and signature photos that I don't want to look at anymore.

    Yeah you really don't need to have his wife and kids as your avatar. His wife and kids have nothing to do with anything. If you slap a picture of Paul Clark on as your avatar then I would say it's o.k.

    Re: Is this picture offensive to anyone?

    The reason I had asked you to remove the avatar is because it's clearly not your family and you're using it for reasons that none of us need to know about. I know you were banned from CR, I don't care why, but that doesn't mean you can come here and blatantly try and open a can of worms. Issues on other sites should stay there.

    I know it may seem like a very simple thing but I don't think you would like somebody using a picture of your family on an anonymous forum to say whatever they wanted. Am I right?

    This isn't about you, it's about trying to respect other people's families and not trying to create issues where they don't belong.

    Thank You,

    If I didn't want people to use a picture of my family, I wouldn't post it on an anonymous message board. Nuff said.
