Davis: That did strike me as odd as well. Maybe, if any "criteria" should be under criticism, it should be what makes a personality distinct. Honestly, I couldn't tell you what Zanza's personality is, nor do I care. I do think claiming that personality as criteria for an avatar somewhat pushes the new meat into forcing a faux personality onto the community that, in the end, just comes off as annoying and shallow. I'm not saying it shouldn't be that way. But maybe whatever criteria there is, would be better kept as a secret so as to avoid post whoring and shallow personalities. Up until a year ago, I could find interest in nearly every thread in Gen Disc and have something to contribute to the threads. Lately, I've felt you can't get half a page into a thread before the mandatory, derailing, flameburst against someone's post occurs. Then it's all downhill from there.
