    I did see that. Terry Crews as well, before all this happened I believe. But I was thinking more along the line of people who caved.

      Good question. I would say not but Iím not a lawyer. (Iím sure lawyers could argue both sides anyway haha).

        If it winds up in court, there will be discovery, and many actions by them may come to light. The fact they communicated the extortion through a lawyer could even limit their attorney client privilege.

          Does it bother you?

          Its only gets charged when there is polarity from the other side, other than that its just a picture.

          Is it just me or does the image sorta look like a whiteface Obama?

            Thatís interesting. Iím sure it will be a sordid affair.

              No, a MAGA hat avatar is 100% political regardless of what other people do. And since politics is "banned", I'm just surprised it's allowed. You'll notice I didn't call for it to be removed...

                Does it bother you like a picture of a pork chop bothers someone from PETA?

                When does it end.

                This is what I was talking about people not being able to just push away. Just how much censorship are you advocating here?

                  I had no idea what his avatar was and I still don't really give a rip about it.

                      Your analogy would hold weight if pork chops were a banned topic.

                      Anyhow, I'd prefer none, and I'll restate that I was simply surprised the Mods hadn't canned that avatar since they run a tight ship on the politics around here. I have no problem with him sporting that avatar.

                        Why stir the pot. You commenting that you didnt call for his avatar to be removed could be construed as a comment for his avatar to be removed. Its the whole self control thing, dont take the bait, its really easy and what is suppose to make us a higher up in the food chain, but some people just cant help themselves.

                                One Saturday night last September, a crowd of celebrities, Silicon Valley titans and Hollywood executives gathered at television producer Mark Burnettís Malibu mansion for a birthday party celebrating venture capitalist Vivi Nevo.

                                The richest of them all was Amazon.com Inc. founder Jeff Bezos, whose stake in Amazon is worth about $125 billion. He sat in the middle of the action and appeared to relish the spotlight, said a guest who knows Mr. Bezos.
