I've seen several avatars in the past few days that have been altered. The alteration is a black bow on the heads of the people in the avatar. I'm just curious if that's intentional and if so, what's the significance? If it's not intentional, is that a hacker's clever joke?

I'm not trying to offend anyone if it is intentional, but if it's not, it could be someone messing around with the site without authorization....

It signifizes the death of innocence...

Or maybe it has to do with THIS thread perhaps?

Ahhh..... I see now! Your avatar was the first one I saw and then a couple more popped up. That thread explains it all. I feel like a dumbass for asking now...

Revtard thinks he's Aretha. Don't you see the parallels?

One's a fat old black woman with a classic soul voice, the other one's Aretha Franklin.
