Some people might be shocked or offended.

Re: Avatars - Who else uses a real picture of themselves?

completely off topic, in Switzerland there's only UWH clubs in Zurich and Geneva that I know of, but I believe there's one in Mulhouse. A few of us are planning on going there in October for a friendly game. If you write the Zurich club at info(at)uwh.ch, I am sure they can put you in touch with the Mulhouse people

No worries, I am used to it with my teenage niece. You just have to tell her she is a pretty pretty little girl and she stops. Worth a try!
