    +1 on what vanity said. I'm not a prude, and I'm all for soft-core porn, but the line has to be drawn somewhere. However, if I was concerned about my workplace watching what sites I browse, I probably wouldn't be on a forum during the day anyway.

    You can disable the avatar function in user cp. I disabled mine.

    Yeah, but I don't want to do that, and vanity has a point. A mod pming someone who goes too far is a reasonable measure.

    Patrick Bateman has been timed out for a full month for using a racial slur against another member. Not a first offense either.

    Fok.

    So Mr.Bateman has been caught--and it is a shame.

    Yes, it is a shame that he decided to sink to using a racial slur against another member. It's a low blow, and completely inappropriate, no matter how you spin it.

    I'm glad you agree.

    Fok.

    Well, I can't imagine what racial slur has been used here; but so far looking at the posts Mr.Bateman has made, it seems there has been nothing particularly egregious or obscene.

    However, if it's what I suspect--and I say this with some presumption--then should people be put into timeout because they talk about the former Jewel in the Crown?

    Referring to a member's race by using a made up name for him is not acceptable behavior. End of story.
