To go off on a tangent from the CEO's rather unhealthy comment, why do Nil, et al have avatars showing rather attractive looking women? Why not, say, average looking women?

Because I like attractive looking women?

Man, If I stated that for every women's nationality that has rejected me, I'd think only Seeland would be safe...
What? You got a woman from Sealand?

You're not rising to the bait quite as I'd hoped.

There is a definite lack of corollary in your statements, how can one almost completely un-related act of racism qualify or condone another act of racism? I think both the fervent hatred of Islam and blatant rudeness and small minded racist views are equally as abhorrent, most people I think would agree.
BUT, right wing and radical hatred of Islam should not be confused with justifiable criticism of Islam and the right to an uncensored media. Religion is in general a waste of time and Islam is arguably the most dangerous one out there, would you go on to condone the 'Muslim' back lash that resulted in needless deaths due to a couple of silly cartoons?
This is all good when written here in this lines, but look around this exact forum and you'll see my point.

The guy can say what ever he wants about who ever he wants. This is his right. If in his position, he shouldn't, someone will take care of telling him off. But when it comes to say something about other people, British women or muslims, it shouldn't be different of how people should react over it.

It is acceptable to hate Islam, it is fashionable right now....

But that a bloke says that British food isn't good and British women are ugly, it isn't ok and he should be careful and shut up?

Pareto-improvement: Unveil beautiful Iranian girls, put burkas on British fatties.

His biggest crime is that he wasn't funny. As for the "gravity" of his comment itself, he was making a speech at a rival US university. This is the equivalent of a band making fun of their current show's rival town where they played at a few nights ago.

So keep on rocking those pink track suits and orange tans, ladies!
