Oh sure, you can fill up threads on internet forums asking people to do various things, but it's generally true that you'll get little in the way of polite acquiescence on said forums. That's just the nature of the internet and the majority of those who visit, with their "Fuck you! Freedom of speech and expression!" attitudes.

(I'm not implying anything about whingingdebris him- or herself, just commenting in general.)

It seems to be something of a social statement, the different approaches to dealing with a disagreeable avatar.

Some people ignore the problem.
Some people Ad-block it, effectively ignoring one of the person's forms of communication. In a sense, selectively censoring the internet to disagreeable content.
Some people attempt to get said person to change said avatar. In a sense, attempting to resolve the issue. This could also be seen as encouraging self-censorship.

Alternatively, replace all instances of 'censorship' with 'filtering' or 'p referencing' to get different interpretations and implications.

It's the only practical form of censorship. I decide what I do or don't want to see. Nobody decides for me, and my decision doesn't affect anybody else. Nothing else works.
