    Is there a way to turn off seeing the avatars? As a word person, I find them way too distracting.

    A lot of people agree with you, and there is a discussion about the possibility of a user selectively turning off only those avatars which they don't like.

    Personally, I find they humanize this board. I often found it hard to distinguish individuals on other boards.

    I agree. I am a more visually based person.

    Funny, as a visual person, I find the generic blue blob avatar distracting!

    The generic blue avatar makes me think of the game SORRY.

    I agree as well. I find them fun and harmless.

    Why do people keep insulting my avatar?

    don't be so sure. My avatar can beat up your avatar.

    You are not the "generic avatar" to which we have been referring? It appears you have been "Enhanced" by your local plastic surgeon.

    I beg your pardon? How could you say that about my features? I'll have you know, "they're REAL . . . and they're SPECTACULAR!" ;)

    I agree with SPECTACULAR, not so sure about the "real" part.

    Just don't send anyone into the steam room to find out.
