A plea to the EF community RE: avatar pictures

To those of you who use provocative photographs of sexy women (Nil), women's body parts (Rangagnnanaana, JLP or JLF?), and women's feet for your forum picture, have you ever stopped to consider what my co-workers are thinking as they walk by my desk and glance at my monitor while I'm looking through your posts?

Unfortunately, my monitor faces a very well-trodden part of the work floor and I would hate for people to think I'm perusing lewd materials during working hours. But at the same time, I would like to give your thoughtfully crafted posts the attention that they duly deserve. If only you would consider changing your picture to something more work-appropriate, then I wouldn't have to resize my browser window in a strange way that enables me to keep your picture off-screen, or just skim the post for a few seconds before somebody walks by...

Many thanks for your consideration.

Actually, I meant to ask you yesterday, where are the Kardashians from originally? Are they Persian, sounds like a Persian name.

I'd bet also on turkish-armenian; "kardesh" means brother in turkish.
