Matt2636,
It seems that i owe you an apology. The misspelling I was referring to was not in your post but rather another's.
BTW your positioning what you assume is my name in place of another word us juvenile at best. It could be construed as a personal attack----a rules violation but only if it was intentionally done!

Appreciate everyone' interest in the rule and the spirit thereof.

When compliance is not forthcoming, there are other ways.

Exercising one of those options - doing so should not have been necessary.

What I appreciate most on this forum is the willingness of most to comply with restrictions imposed by the forum owners and these folks are held in a position of esteem by me. Those others are not. Thankfully this number is small but seems to be growing of late.

Considering what matt26236 was doing to Walking Wolf, the rule is quite necessary.

Considering the action that was taken, it is clear that the rule is as I presumed above. That avatar is WW's mark. Anyone else using it is either ignorant of that fact or dishonestly trying to confuse folks as to what WW is posting. Since matt demonstrated clearly in this thread that he was not ignorant of the effect of his behavior, it must have been deliberate.

Good rule. Good action taken.

looks like they wont enforce the forum rules that were ALREADY in place yet they will make forum rules to protect their buddies.

Well, my avatar is a blank space under my username. But, since I wasn't the first to use that on this form, I guess I am in violation of the forum rules.

I personally object to any avatars. They're vain. I find them offensive. We need a new rule. No Avatars!

Anybody who can't just read the name beside the post is too illiterate to be typing here anyway. What did people do before avatars were invented? Just heave in replies without knowing to whom they were replying?

Can anybody make me an avatar that says "No more rules!"

Thats like saying that everyone should wear a bag on their head.
Then everybody would always have to ask,,, who is that,,, is that you????

I like avitars. I see a gorilla, I know, I see, no stinkin badges, I know, I see unknown hunter, I know.
I like mine, never change it, It is personnal, It is a pic of the real life "me".

I change my avatar all the time ... am I now supposed to look through EVERY member's avatar to insure that I don't break a "rule".

Like laws passed, this issue is better suited not to be a rule but to allow people of the community and its members to handle these issues outside of a need for a rule.

I like Rodney's viewpoint .... next time "no rules!"

Up dating avitars is NOT a problem.
I have seen you and many others change to new ones, they think are cooler or betterer than the old ones...
Thats is not a dellema(sp).
The only time it has problem has been when an argumenter has COPIED an avitar of an oppenent during a back and foreth discousion.
It is a very special transgression.
The new rule is not realy pointed at anyone new to the forum that chooses an avitar.
