A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.
Probably can't use custom avatars yet, as I imagine they had some problems with it before. Like people using images they shouldn't, etc. But I have a suggestion for this. Let us submit one avatar for custom use, and then let the moderators decide if it's allowed to be used on this site. At least I know this works for a few other message boards.
You weren't the only one who was tempted to pick an avatar that didn't match their tastes... I had an itching to pick that Serena avatar, but decided that since I've opted not to see anybody elses, that it didnt' make must sense for me to bother.
