    Dude, you need to pick up some of Jennifer's Fe.

    Calling the reason for a thread's existence "illegitimate", especially when it is in The Fluff Zone, seems highly unproductive to me. Who knows, we might have gotten an interesting thread going analyzing why athenian200 reacts so strongly to the image.

    It wasn't a crime to kill Jews in the Fatherland between 1932 and 1945. It was a crime to be a Jew during that time!

    The most heinous crime to me are parents who allow their screaming kids in public places or cell-phones ringing in the movie theater. It's a total disrespect to my inner peace!!!

    Well, that seems a reasonable point.

    Well, there's a lot to say here.

    First of all, I can't understand why I was compared to Sona. He was just being unreasonable and mean. I was just grossed out, and I created this thread to whine, not to force him to change it. I simply blocked the image.

    Second of all, I can't believe that some people are more offended by Hitler than by... that half-dressed person he placed up there. At least Hitler and his ilk had redeeming qualities, such as being ambitious, organized, having good motivational skills, and decent strategists. A human being put on display like that is degrading to everyone. I respect other people's right to dissent, but I'm shocked that so many other people don't share my views.

    And Oberon, there's a reason I created this in the fluff zone. I know that he has a right to put up whatever avatar he wants, just like I have a right to voice my opinion on it.

    And Uberfuhrer, thanks for changing it. You didn't have to, but you did. I appreciate that.

    Yeah, actually It's because I identify with C3-P0 in several ways.

    Why does everyone pick on Sona? Is it because he's an ISTJ?

    Is this for real? I just feel like I'm being put on. I guess I understand feeling like that, but to be shocked that others don't share your views?

    If you really aren't putting us on, then there are several religions you might consider where displaying a little skin is a much bigger sin than slaughtering people.

    He says a lot of things that are quite iffy in terms of accuracy, or in terms of knowledge of different parts of the world.

    That was my first reaction to, but it actually kind of makes sense.

    In the case of Hitler Germany, he and his party created an incredible amount of advances - it transformed a destabilized poor country into a world superpower in a very short amount of time. The fact that it is overshadowed by the efficient immorality doesn't really change that.

    The counterpart would be that, if you assume the creation and objectification of people is inherently bad, you would have none of the "advances" and all of the bad.

    Since neither avatar does anything to me emotionally, I'm not about to judge the respective views, although I find the current one more... uhh... in bad taste than the previous one. I don't really understand the reaction to the naked body, but I can see the iconic reaction it could trigger.
