I logged in today and found that I had been assigned an avatar. It's not the one you are seeing right now-I had to change it right away. I guess everyone has to have one, as it appears a well-meaning administrator gave me one since I didn't choose one when I signed up. Unfortunately, it was a pic of Russell Means who is a no-good, wife-beating, politically confused piece of odat-though most non-NDNs just know him as an AIM spokesperson. I most certainly didn't want to be represented in this forum by his low-life self, so I just spent a whole lotta time resizing an image so that it would fit the requirements when I should be going to bed. I'm really not angry, but I would've appreciated an email or PM letting me know I needed to choose one to be on the site.
