Fid, no reason to jump on your sword as far as I am concerned. I see your concerns and it appears you were swimming upstream on this.

I think Len might be missing the larger picture. Free is great, but good is better.

I know the debate was sort of raging over copyright issues surrounding L4, but just because it is a free download does not eliminate the copyright law. L4 is clearly in violation and WoTC can come down any time they want. Maybe they will just let it go, which is most likely.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

IANAL, but I disagree that L4 is clearly in violation of copyright.

and WoTC can come down any time they want. Maybe they will just let it go, which is most likely.

Both of those are true, however.

I don't get it.  What is the issue with the avatar?  Can you guys identify it?

Change your [Edit] avatar to something you have loaded on your hard drive or something that you have loaded onto Photobucket.

King sees it, I see it, and apparently the others have it blocked or have a stronger stomach for such things than I do.

What are you guys seeing?  Its the same one I use on DF, the heraldry of the County of Idee from Greyhawk.

You guys are either putting me though the noobee initiation or its linking to something bad.

I'm going to delete it to be safe.  If this is a prank, you guys win!

OK, something weird is happening with Fid's avatar.  Maybe it is accidental.

This is his avatar.  DO NOT VISIT THIS URL:

[Edit:  OK, Zenopus has been scarred for life.  I warned you.]

That GIF is sick.  The other GIFs are normal Greyhawk heraldry.

King and I do not share the same ISP, so something is fucked-up.

[Edit II: Anti-leeching code at the website that hosts Fid's original avatar is the cause.]

...the Horror, THE HORROR...

It was definitely NOT his DF avatar (below). Not even close.

It's gone now...but how do we forget?

EDIT: FYI - I didn't click on the link you posted. I saw the original avatar when I logged in here - presumably the same one you and KoP saw.

It's really not worth seeing if you haven't. Trust us.

OK, I deleted it.  Can you confirm whatever it was is gone?  I tried to come here and make a responsible post so if this a Noobee trick, I hate to see it derail this thread.

I click the link you posted and I see what it is supposed to be, the arms of Idee (Greyhawk).  Same thing I see use on DF.

JG,

I saw it.  It was bad.  I thought you were having a joke JG, but damn that was awful.

I'm glad it's gone now.

Best,

Paul

Never heard of anti-leeching code before.  If FoulFoot says it was unintentional then I am good with that explanation.  Apologies to Fid for making the assumption that it was intentional.

I will be haunted by that image for the rest of my life.

Guys, I have over 1,700 post at Dragonsfoot.  There are regular posters both there and here who have met me and can vouch for me.  I would not register here, make what I consider to be a serious post and then shoot myself in the foot with a sick porno avatar.

Ban me if you want, I have said my piece.  Any Mods can contact me at the e-mail addy I registered with.  All I can say is that this has been a surreal experience!

Have you seen how crazy Dragonsfoot gets?  I can think of more than a handful of people who would pull a stunt like that.

However, I am willing to believe that you did not intentionally post using a sick avatar.  I will edit my posts accordingly.  I publicly apologize for overreacting.

I first visited URLs that were "around" your avatar's URL.  They displayed normal Greyhawk coat-of-arms.  Your avatar was still hardcore pr0n.

Then I cleared my browser cache and visited the URL of your avatar again.  It is a normal coat-of-arms now and probably always was.

I will e-mail my screen capture to you.  You will see why I was so angry.

JG,

I didn't click on a link.  The avatar was just there when I read this thread.

Damn odd to me.

Best,

Paul
