I do think, though, that the paying supporters should be able to choose whatever avatars they
like to express themselves, as long as they are not obscene or pornographic. This makes perfect

I work with other females who don't take kindly to some of the "T&A" styles of avatars. It

What is the difference between conditioning in a secondary vs conditioning in a keg (or bottle
for that matter)? Are they all accomplishing the same thing?As far as I know, yes. They
