    There is no "should" meant in this thread: I didn't ask the people that they "should" justify their choice. It could be interesting for you to read the first few pages of this thread. Take also into account that their is always a little language barrier; not everything we write down here comes through exactly how we really mean it.

    maybe you have misread - it is AVATAR as even you say so why expecting 'real face' from it?
    really strange...

    Stranger yet is why you felt compelled to challenge this?

    I don't know if I'm misreading the tone but I don't like this phrase one bit:
    why do you even think one should explain it to you???
    It strikes me as argumentative and I for one will not tolerate it here!

    For what it's worth:
    Erik was merely expressing an interest in hearing peoples opinions. He was by no means criticising anybody's choice not to display a pic of his/her face. Had you taken the time to read some of Erik's posts you would have quickly worked out that he is not one judge others.

    This thread is for people that DO want to show their real faces!
    Regards,

    I guess this makes me a member of DRAFT.
    Hats off to both Jon von der Heyden & Erik.

    I followed a link to this thread because I was curious to see what DRAFT was.
    It's a bit strange, at least for me, that my first post here will not be related to excel. Oh well.

    As for my opinion on the subject: Ideas are more important than faces.
    My face for once, is completely irrelevant. It doesn't say anything about me, I can't choose it, I can't make a much of a point with it, etc...
    Conversely, an avatar is flexible and can certainly have more meaning and show more about a person than a face.
    It's not about daring. It's not about looks.
    It's about being so much more than a face, that it subtracts instead of adding.
    (It's about being alive where it matters.)

    I haven't even put up an avatar as of yet, I shall set it up soon.
