I seldom log into ATS, but read it quite a bit.
Whenever I log in, and get a chance to see the Avatars of the people I have been reading for a long time, I am frequently shocked!
My opinion of the posters I've been following never improves by seeing their Avatars. Frequently, it goes down a little. Or a lot.
Avatars, ATS points, and other trappings -- they are just a distraction from the site content, which has made this place famous.
Sorry for the brutal honesty. I am being superficial about something that itself is superficial, I know that.
