I'm not trying to be a smarta** with this, because I really love this forum, but something I just noticed made me kind of go hmmmmm.
I previously had an avatar that was a picture of Bert (from Bert and Ernie of Sesame Street) superimposed next to a picture of Osama bin Laden, meant as a joke. I was politely asked by a moderator (don't remember which one, I deleted the PM) to remove it, as some found it offensive. Fair enough. I don't make the rules, but I'm willing to abide by them.
But as I was preparing a post just now, while scrolling through the available Smilies, I noticed a bearded Smilie with the name Osama. Are the Smilies that are available provided by some outside server, or are they added for us to use by the Moderators. And if so, wouldn't there be just as much cause to remove this Smilie as there was in asking me to change my avatar?
