Must say, they don't bother me either way. I don't have an avatar because I simply never thought that much about it, I wouldn't know how to make one or what it would depict. I also think it's yet another clue to who I am, given some of the things I've posted, coupled with say, the cover of my favourite book or whatever...I think it in some way may detract from my anonymity, which iI kind of enjoy..
