Bad move covers.

This a forum of personalities.
The very reason many posters come here is to have a place outside of their daily lives where they can be themselves (or someone different).  Many of these guys have spent years and thousands if not tens of thousands of posts to reach their level of notoriety.  For you to take away their individuality with only a blanket warning, which I'm sure many missed, and to take away not only the offenders but every persons right.....ludicrous.

Horrible, horrible business model   I understand you need to make money, but honestly, this was literally the worst possible way covers could have handled this scenario.

In my opinion.

canadiantruth: It is probably the only way they could have handled it. Reviewing each and every avatar from over 100K people is a ludicrous idea. If an offensive avatar is posted now it will be obvious it was done after the warning, no excuses. As for myself I'm glad. Just because it is a public forum does not give anyone the right to post crap that may be offensive to others. Now, if they would just get serious about the language used in many posts they would really be onto something.

Not exactly sure if we can be considered customers. We're more like window shoppers. Is anyone actually sending Covers any money?
