    Are serious Mal, some one had the hide to ask you to change your avatar, that's a bloody joke, if they don't like your spider avatar than don't bloody look at it, omg wonder what this person does when they see pics of spiders on marketing adds, bill boards or mortein cans in the super market, ask for them to be removed

    I do agree that your avatar is your choice. If it creeps someone out, that is THEIR problem. I was getting used to the moving spider lol.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    I too originally thought it was a bit 'off' to ask someone to change their avatar, but then the true facts were made apparent. Facts always make a difference. *winks*

    I think the person in question had a very severe phobia about arachnids, and asked very politely would Mal consider changing it? It was then up to Mal whether he did or didn't - he did have a choice.

    I personally think highly of Mal due to his decision to change it, as it showed he did take other's into consideration. I also think highly of the person who asked Mal to do so - their thanks is obvious proof how appreciative they were that he did.

    That's how I see it, anyway.

    A colleague of mine is arachnophobic and if it wasn't for him I would also say WTF?! But knowing him.... Gosh its crazy! He only needs to see a spider picture in the newspaper and he freaks out! So I can understand that some people had a real problem with your avatar.

    But good on you for changing it!! Very considerate!! *thumbs up*
