Now I agree with the general idea that politics should not be discussed on this unrelated forum. However, disallowing us our right to support one of the candidates by having their image as our avatar crosses another line completely. We have an inherent freedom of expression that although you have the technical right to refuse, your morality as an American or a European or a citizen of the world in general should dictate that you allow the limited freedom of expression in this controlled setting. Bottom line, political discussions get out of hand, but if I want an Obama avatar, that's an entirely different story. And please, don't lock this thread out for a juvenile reason. And at least make an attempt to respond.
