Whats wrong with my avatar ?

I have been notified by Paintergirl that my avatar has been removed :::

"I have had to remove your avatar as it contravenes AO Rules and Regulations - just a tad too risqué!!" Julie

Why ? there was no racism or nudism in my avatar, its a cartoon and its up to your imagination to picture it as you wish. So which AO rules and Regulations did I break ? Are we all going MAD ????

Why do we have to be so politically correct in this damn country that we are always afraid of offending somebody !

There is nothing wrong with my avatar and I expect an explaination where in the AO rules does it say that my avatar is wrong ?

You should have sent a PM as posting PM contents from Staff or others is also against the rules

Posting the avatar which has already been deemed inappropriate isn't exactly a great idea either :HEADBANG:

The rules are here https://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/faq.p...#faq_the_rules if you want to see what they say on the subject.

Very clever idea to post the avatar again, having been told it's unacceptable.

If you want to know why Paintergirl did what she did, can I recommend asking her privately and politely, rather than throwing a bit of a strop on the forum? Mods are only human - much as we try to remain polite and respectful at all times, it helps if we're shown some respect in return.

Personally, I can cope with all manner of insults being thrown my own way, but it really gets my goat seeing people throwing crap at my colleagues and speaking down to them - hence the tone of this post.

Anyway, this is a private matter, so I'm locking this thread.
