Ok, some people had scantily clad women and partially nude women in their avatars.
Clearly people posted sexual images as well. It's obvious you removed most or all of those (lesbian images appeared to have 'fell through the cracks').
The point is, you cracked down on images where there was sexual activity but allowed the partially nude images to flourish. Then when your advertisers complain because you as a site weren't diligent enough to 'police' the latter, you punish EVERY SINGLE MEMBER by removing all avatars.
That is an AWFUL business model.
Take D-Town as an example, one of the most well-known members here. Without his avatar he would just be....D-Town...whatever that's worth.
Now D-Town needs to go through an Avatar Approval Process to post a pic of a guy smoking a cigarette?
You'll soon realize, we attract the advertisers and when membership falls significantly, they will quickly turn a blind eye to some bikinis and hyperlinks.
Realize this soon or perish as a site...
