from time to time i've kicked around the idea of updating mine to the image below as it reflects my current state of mind:

but the main reason i've kept the one i have for so long is i love the green.

LOL! Now I am wanting to see what the fuss is all about. Stupid curiousity. It's like a car wreck, you know it could be bad, but you can't help looking at it.

 

Bad.

Very, very bad!

I don't think TCM has the option, however it is easy to do if you install a browser add-on that blocks images. I know that Adblock Plus allows you to do this. You just right-click on the image and tell it to block it. I just tested it on someone's and all avatar images on the specific person's posts are gone. And yes, it even blocked the tiny one TCM makes for the account on the main page too.

I am surprised that anyone on this site was worth of being blocked. I thought it was a place to discuss classic movie culture and all the things around it. I guess no place on the internet is safe.

The very reason why it's never a good idea to use your real face as your avatar.

Well, unless you're a super cutie like CasablancaLover.
