We do things here because it is our preference. I think it's been pretty successful and I don't really want to change the formula much. And this is the part where I say that this Forum isn't meant to appeal to a wide variety of people (for instance, those who take everything literally aren't going to enjoy it much here). We're not going to change to accomodate everyone, because there are thousands of online message boards, which means that there's probably one for you.
By "our preference" do you mean you and the others that run Isthmus or those who use the forums? It seems like most people in this thread do want avatars.
