I (EJohnson) have been restricted by administrator from using funny and/or relevant graphics and/or animation. When you look at other web forums, they are populated with people who use graphics and illustrations to communicate---after all, that is what the browse button is for, rather than being just for the host's own pleasure. Please vote in this poll ---and you can vote for more than one answer.

Thank you

This forum is serious enough, and is not at risk for loosing focus due to a little bit of graphic interest.

Graphics can add a human element that is important - we are after all dealing with people, whether we agree with each other or not.

My view is that bitter attacks, venom, sardonic argument and frivolous graphics only hurt the position of the poster in the eyes of undecided readers of this forum.  I say let him hang himself.

Thanks for your support!


If I had graphic add-on capabilities, perhaps a clever picture of sticks and stones would be in order. Wink

Or worse yet....my horrific signature monkey smoking a cigarette. But that might offend clean-living monkeys.

For the record, Eric S. Johnson (EJohnson), who previously organized a trolling campaign on these forums and has been twice banned (under the screen names palerider and Paradiddle) for repeated violation of AntiPolygraph.org's posting policy, disregarded a request sent ten days earlier by private message that he "Please desist from posting taunts with (or without) images." Mr. Johnson was today informed, also by private message, that "As a consequence, [his] posting privileges have been temporarily limited (no attachments)."

Mr. Johnson sent a defiant response by private message. His attachment-posting privileges will remain suspended indefinitely.
