Yesterday, I was asked by Neil to remove my avatar - a picture of the cover of the *** Pistols album, Never Mind the ******** - one the grounds that it contains a naughty word. I duly removed said avatar because I'm a good little boy, but I'm ****ed off by it and would like to dispute it.
Forgive me if I'm out of line, but I can't see the ****ing problem with it. This word that is not used in an offensive way, or any coherent way at all. If you can make any sense out of the phrase never mind the ********, never mind finding it to make sense and be offensive, please tell me. This album is decent enough to be displayed and sold in high street shops, so why isn't it decent enough to be displayed on an internet forum? As far as I'm concerned, there are far worse avatars out there. Bryce got away with a pot-leaf avatar for a long time - at least that symbolises something! Brumby's new avatar has a bloke making a hand gesture. How is the cover of a popular album worse than those two?
This has really ****ed me off and seeing as not too many people share my point of view, I guess I'll **** off.
