Karl, an excellent thread.
It's too bad actually that we sometimes judge by avatars and not by posts.
Of course for the most part, we try to visualize whom it is we are speaking to.
Perhaps that makes it easier to either agree or disagree with a member?
After reading the thread about Dark avatars one would think perhaps there are many of us who have evil beliefs.
Yes, my avatar is a fallen angel in hell.
It doesn't mean that Iam against those who have Christian beliefs, or that I worship the devil.
I actually had someone ask me yesterday, if I practice Wicca, as that was another impression they had of me. I don't. But I respect it.
Iam a pretty open book here. I have posted my personal life, and pictures of myself. Not much to hide.
I think it's just as cool if members don't want to share too much about themselves. An avatar is just a picture, and the post should give more
reflection into the member.
Of course, we all know where we were when finding out Nefermore was a male!
