You know, had the administrator emailed me and said "look man, I've had a complaint about your avatar could you please find something different" I would have happily complied; I'm not on this board to offend anyone, I'm here to learn more about a subject that interests me. But instead I got "Hmm, I thought he looked rather Nazi-like. Well, enough of that." So the administrator was judge, jury and executioner. To me censorship is so, well, Nazi-like.
Well, it's my forum, and I can and will censor what I want, although I don't often do so. Typically, I try to let the forum go in a sort of self-policing, laissez-faire manner. Calling me Nazi-like, however, is a good way to get kicked off. Even if you meant it as a compliment, given your apparent admiration for Nazis, I take it as an insult. Whether or not you 'would happily have complied' is irrelevant; there was no reason to leave it to you to fix the avatar, and have other members continue to be offended while we wait for you to read the message and respond to it. I did send you a message notifying you that I had removed the avatar. I could easily have simply banned you, but I took time out of my day to give you the benefit of the doubt. I am now rethinking that decision.
