Describe something that's happened to you that you can't logically explain or understand
Lol, I like that.
WELL this random guy on a random forum made a really offensive avatar and I simply have no explanation as to why he would do that!
I've only just noticed it! I'd definitely change it if I were you.
I saw neils avatar earlier, but I don't understand what was so offensive about it.
Well racism's bad mmmkay....
Maybe his avatar didn't update for me because I don't remember seeing anything racist and it was on the one that he'd had the past week at the point you were all discussing the avatar.
Hmm ok, which did you see? He's had a couple of borderline ones lately, but the one yesterday took the cake.
One with two animal. Can't remember if they were goats or donkeys or something else.
No his worst one had a lot of people holding signs. It was pretty gross.
Just to be clear, I removed Neil's previous avatar as I felt it was wholly inappropriate for this site. While not wanting to shut down "free speech", messaging that is purposefully anti-immigrant in this way is completely at odds with the ethos and spirit of Red Dwarf, particularly given the fact that one of its main cast members has spoken of his family suffering exactly such prejudice when he was younger. What's more, the use of such messaging in an avatar was something I could only construe as inflammatory.
I would prefer it, in fact, if political statements of this kind (no matter what the stance) be kept out of profile avatars and signatures in this way. I'm not saying don't discuss politics at all on the site, but when you put things like that in your profile you're tying them to every post you make, anywhere on the site, and making it difficult for those who don't want to engage with such conversations to ignore them. Let's remember that first and foremost this is a forum for discussion of a TV comedy series.
So please, let's not have any more of it. Neil, I would be grateful if you could change your current avatar, for the same reason (I'm giving you the opportunity to do so willingly rather than forcibly removing it myself, this time).
Fine hope this ticks all your boxes and gets my message across
Bravo Neil. Your subtle jab for being told off for being racist on a forum will surely turn a few heads.
What a hero eh?
He has almost knocked Tex Rimmer off my top spot with his bold social commentary.
He's practically Martin Luther King tbh
Are you telling me we should have a holiday in Neilolds honor?
Well we should certainly have a holiday, I dunno about honour. But holidays are good.
I like it. We will spend every 12th of June getting drunk on listerine and spouting racist nonsense in the neilold holiday
And bothering people with terrible jokes that only one person ever laughs at.
