Having watched my father die from lung cancer I think I would prefer to be classified as a sensitive pansy rather an insensitive oik.

I'm sorry to hear of your loss. I nearly lost my grandfather to the big "C" and was very-lucky to avoid it.

I've lost my English grandfather to it, my great-grandmother to it & a friend to it.

Just because somebody smokes in their profile pic is a crap excuse to report a photo.

I'm not really one for giving grief over silly stuff, but you really need to man up if you are offended by seeing someone smoke.....perhaps don't leave the house?

Were you not also making an obscene gesture in the photograph? Smoking probably isn't an excuse enough on it's own; obscenities almost certainly are.

I don't actually recall the picture myself, but I do still have the email reporting it. The Mod who did take action would have taken an independent view of whether the report was reasonable or not and acted accordingly.

An obscene gesture is likely to have violated the Code of conduct 6, bullet 1 combined with bullet 6
6) You must not:
· Post messages that are potentially libellous, obscene, vulgar, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violate any law.
· Use an avatar or signature that offends the spirit of this Code of Conduct, or which violates any copyright attached to that image.

I should add that the replacement has also been reported and I've taken the view that it's finely ballanced as to whether this might be seen as violating other parts of rule 6.

Now might be the time to consider that the point has been made and it's time to move on and find another Avatar?

Apologies for the late reply Peter, only got back yesterday from S&T's working week at the railway.

Suitably changed, apologies for any issues caused with the "temporary".

As this is in the Temporary postings section (and TMCA and I have made our peace by PM) would it be best if the topic was now deleted?
