    The article almost sounded like it was talking about something more like emoticons if I read it correctly.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I didn't read the article, but I think I agree with the poster that said we usually choose our avatars having in mind a certain impression we want to pass. It seems to me that people that constantly change their avatars are trying to find one that is the most flattering to their personality, while the ones that choose an avatar and stay with this for a long time wish to make a visual impression and being easy to identify among the other members of the threads.
    For me, that I usually visualise the members exactly like their avatars, the impressions I get are members that want to stress their femininity/masculinity, their sense of humour, their friendliness, they want to provoke, etc. It doesn't even have to be representative, it's just a point each poster wants to make about themselves.

    I would judge yours based on what I know about the actual character. Lelouch is the most beautiful anime character I've ever seen. He's also possibly the douchiest. Yet, I still like him because he's clever. As most people do.

    Nonetheless, avatars are superficial. They only show one tiny facet of how a person wants to present themselves. Mine is silly. I picked Near from Death Note. It's one of my all time favorite animes. Near was an INTJ. He liked to play with toys. Simple.

    Mine was chosen purely for WTF value. I enjoy a good WTF, and I think there's not enough WTF in the world, so I spread WTF whenever possible. If no WTF is available, I will settle for a bit of OMG, but it's not quite as good IMO.

    -How beautiful, this pale Endymion hour.
    -What are you talking about?
    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.

    I agree. Mine is light-hearted, carefree, and definitely WTF - It's cute and I like it.

    But okay, there is another meaning, but it's irrelevant.
