Probably, but some people are more careful than others, and it never hurts to ask.

Avatars are a Board-wide issue, not a Misc issue. There are definitely limits to what can be put in Avatars, Sigs and Locations; if there's a problem, Bonz, Spiff or an Admin will ask you to remove it. Or you can PM one of them with exactly what you want to use and let them check it out first.
Considering that it took FOREVER to get rid of Cogley's vulgar avatar and Elton's "Jesusbusters" is STILL up I'd say that avs are a very open field.

Speaking as an Asgard, I resent the implication that just because some human comic book artist drew our Supreme Commander as some sort of winged hat wearing, belching oaf who speaks in a different font to everyone else that our society is a pagan one.

I'm deeply sorry for offending your beliefs. Let me make it up to you with a prayer:


Mighty Thor, will you forgive me for sullying your good name?

As someone intimately involved with the development of said avatar(s), I resemble that remark!

Jesus was real. His magic tricks, however, may have been exaggerated.

May have been real - but because he (and his hippie friends) were so anti establishment they got a lot better press than our whole pantheon who were the establishment (in our parts).

Damn lefty journalists

When the thread title said "Politics/Controversial Topics" - I didn't think it actually meant discuss them in this thread!

Heeeyyy, have you ever seen Jesus and Art Metrano together in the same place at the same time?
