    For the same reason I turned off sigs. It takes away from the content. I dont want to see 5 animated gifs attached to each post, its annoying. The same reason I dont have Flash installed.

    Why does everyone like avatars anyhow? What do they add to the duscussion? Why does everyone want sigs that are longer than 75% of the posts that someone makes? What benefit is there?

    Which would you prefer?

    Avatars:

    No sigs or avatars:

    Not everyone is on broadband and having to load 4 new avatars (or more) per page is not necessary. The average avatar is 1-2kilobytes in size, 4 of those on a page and you have about 6KB of unnecessary data. That can be replaced by a few thousand words. A few thousand words is lot more than an avatar ever could be.

    Avatars are bloat, and people wonder why software is spread across multiple CDs for a small office suite. Bloat. Avatars. Sigs. Same crap, all fillre, no content, no functionality.

    People would find a way to advertise in them, and it would just be one more thing for the mods to police.
    If they were allowed, my av would look just like it does right now. (blank)

    I know ***** ripped off everybody else, but they wouldn't do it to me.
