    Confusing Avatars

    This has been irritating me a little for a while, but now that benchy has been disenfranchised the more so. I propose, that for the purposes of CW at least, that copyright subsists in an avatar and that benchy should should have sole rights to that bloody monkey, and, mentioned in the same sentence for no nefarious reason at all, whoever first used that image of Kohli should have sole use of that.

    ...... and if anybody suggests I've developed early-onset Alzheimers and starts using an image of Robin Friday as their avatar they can gagf

    Agree with Fred. I don't usually look at someone's username, I just look at their avatar, unless it's an avatar I don't recognise. All the people with the Kohli avatar's are slightly merging into one person for me now.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Not too fussed about a few photoshopped monkeys, but I'd say the Kohli thing has rather run its course. Does tend to defeat the object of having a personalised avatar.

    Just turn off avatars and sigs like the cool kids do, then you don't give a **** what the hoi-polloi are doing, and you can keep your av and sig forever, and it'll just bore other people not you.

    Hoi-polloi is one of my favourite phrases. Kudos grecian.

    On an unrelated note, I imagine grecian to look like that blonde guy he had as his avatar for ages.

    In fact, I think there's a thread about people looking like their avatars kicking around somewhere...

    I wish I was Roy Batty, every day of my life, apart from that premature death thing.

    I find it mildly irksome tbh. When we had our first spate it made me realise that generally I don't actually read the poster's username and just go by the avatar.
