Thank-you.

Someone should ask that annoying, irritating little member with the bubblegum-blowing young Monk to....

Thank you. I am by nature a very mirthful and jocular person, though it is somewhat restrained here....
In actual fact, I have more often than not been referred to as 'the joker in the pack'.

Perhaps the idiot some village is crying out for.

To be fair, burning monks are literally inflammatory.

So anything goes as an avatar then?
Definitely not.
All activity on DW is subject to the TOS. I think most people have a pretty good idea of what is acceptable.

There have been some rare instances where a member was requested to replace their avatar with something more suitable.
If anyone has concerns about the appropriateness of another member's avatar then you are welcome to use the report function.
Kind regards,
Ben

Calling attention to yourself by using overly large photos isn't against the rules, but it is annoying. People who want to be taken seriously should avoid doing stupid things like that. And no, the village does not need any idiots.

A good place to end this.

This being is bound to samsara, kamma is his means for going beyond. -- SN I, 38.
