So let's see: you broke the rules, someone reported it and the image was flagged. 

Hmm, seems the website is functioning properly then.

Not under lib undertow.
He broke the rule!

it could be because you're active on the forums, and it just gives the mods an extra chance to stumble upon your avi...

i've seen some wildly inappropriate avi's that seemed to stay on forever, and the one thing i've noticed is that they almost always belong to accounts that are not overly active...

This to a very large part

Oh give me a break.

There's one female member who used to post a lot in the forums. She had strong religious views. She could say anything she wanted and get away with it. She could threaten people, call them names and generally do whatever she wanted. But if you started to insult her, or reference her other posts to show she was being hypocritical, then BAM you were brigged. So, don't think start talking about it being anti-female around here.

Her being an outspoken Conservative overruled her status as a female on this site. That would be the most obvious reason why she received special treatment I can think of. Or maybe she just played the game better than others (posting outrageous bullshit to bait others into personal attacks, then CAM them immediately).

To be fair, MM has gotten better at going after crazies of all political leanings equally over the last couple weeks. A number of notorious conservatives have been brigged repeatedly lately, when they used to have carte blanche for years.

A year or so ago someone had a picture taken down because it showed a guy's thingy, but some mod decided it wasn't COMPLETELY flaccid. There a bit (okay, more than a bit) of arbitrary around here.

They use protractors to figure out the angle of the dangle.

Some guys are growers, some guys are showers. Wouldn't that be discrimination against the growers?

The enforcement of rules in this place is random and arbitrary, that's why it's a waste of time arguing about it.

Apparently it included "visible areola", although how anybody could have seen this in an avatar 236 pixels high is beyond me...

Ah well... the squares are now a little bigger, so parents and employers can once again sleep soundly at night, safe in the knowledge that there is no visible areola on the internet....

No appeal. I've discussed it with the mods and made a 4 pixel adjustment to the black square - hopefully that will be enough to satisfy the requirements.

I just wanted the asswipe who reported it to show some balls and own up to his/her actions.

I'm willing to consider all applicants and will evaluate each claim on its own merits.

OMG...serious?!  Really? Because she's conservative?

That sure must be a really heavy burden some of you must carry.

She's in the brig just as often as most of her detractors.

Yep,

I reported you sad

I reported you because your avatar blatantly broke the rules and  was completely out of character  of what you usually do. But recently...no need to boast about being the richest retired kid on the block, no need to boast "I shot Brooke Lynne" and then paste her obviously rules breaking image as avatar and then watch you argue about 4 pixels on the nipple with the mods.

Sorry, I just hope you had a bad day, get over it and all will be good tomorrow smile

Trolling galore, banned for a few days, deleted account was all that remained when the ban was over. No need for such trolls on a discussion forum anyway.
