Hi.

I saw something earlier that is at least crude, and at worst very offensive as someone's avatar.

I figured I should report the content but am not sure what the best way to do that would be.

Who should I contact?

Thanks!

It's only mandatory if you're using non-animal avatars. We two are on the safe side meeple

I would guess it's the "Game Slut" one. If anything it's certainly in poor taste after the sexism threads we've just had recently.

that one is mild compared to one I saw. Tried to figure out how to report it and wasted 20 minutes going from spot to spot.

I find your avatar, mouseover, and geek badge offensive.
"I don't give a ship."... Not cute, and is nigh to swearing.

I find your avatar offensive. The "xxx" is clearly a reference to pornography.

I find my own avatar and and geek badge offensive.
It encourages the feeding of human food to wildlife.


Granted, I have not seen the avatar in question, or maybe I have but was not offended. However, censorship is a slippery slope. My above comments were clearly meant in jest in such a grouping, and yet at the same time I'm trying to make a subtle point. Tread carefully... Your avatar may be next.
