Earlier today I saw member crazygood's signature and it had a picture of Adolf Hitler in it. Saw that it was gone when I got home earlier this evening, so I asked him what happened.
He told me he was asked to remove it because of its possible offensiveness. But what about other signatures?
I've seen people with signatures and avatars of bikini-clad babes, figure skaters with their legs in the air, and even Osama and Hussein sharing a bed together. What's the difference between those and a picture of Hitler?
Whether or not crazygood really does collector Hitler memorabilia doesn't really matter, and, frankly, it's not even a question of Freedom of Speech/Expression. It's a question of: where is the line drawn? I don't recall it being against the rules to have a picture of a tyrannical person, or even bikini babe, in one's profile.
I don't know how or if crazy has said anything about it to the TCC Team, but I surely hope people understand where I'm coming from — if Osama is OK, then why not Hitler?
Honestly, I'm more offended by half-naked girls than historical, albeit cruel, figures. I've never said anything, simply because it's not against the rules.
