I know this is the reason,that people delete me,well all I can say about it,you have your likes and dislikes.I can have my own.I really don't care who likes Michael Jackson or not,I love MJ,and he'll always be my avatar.I keep people even when I don't like their avatar,it doesn't matter to me.Everyone has different likes here,and are free to upload any avatar they choose.

Hi, Java. No, actually I have never deleted a friend from my friends-list that has an avatar that I don't like. By the way, I love yours. I love M.J. To be honest, I could add someone whose avatar is cool, but I would never delete my friends just because of their avatars...

I usually like everyones avatar,because they are so special and diffrent from everyone elses. I would never delete a friend over their avatar either,it is rude and hurtful to the person with the avatar,they don't even know why they got deleted anyways.

hi java09 that's a lousy kind of friend who would do that,yuck to them is what I say. A lot of us liked Michael Jackson. any way I sure do not delete any one based on such shallow thinking.It would take a lot for me to delete a friend,like some totals insults, nothing else would make me do that at all.

I'm asking all these questions because a noticed a few have deleted me,and I've always answered their discussions nicely,so I don't know why.Well I guess it don't really matter to me,I get friend requests almost everyday,so that makes up for it.

Hello dear Java. Well i think that idea is ridiculous ! Why would i ever delete a friend because of their avatar ? I have other criteria in deleting or adding friends, and those definitely aren't remotely connected with the avatar.

I don't delete a friend just because of avatar. I will delete someone from my friend list if they are not seem to be my friend anymore, but I never do that in mylot. Actually, if they were not so f**k** annoying, I won't do that.

yeah... i had some in my friend list that never reply my pm, even I always reply their pm, and their notification always shown in my email, it's really annoying. I'm thinking for remove them from my list :D But for discussion, maybe they do not have same interest with me, so it's okay if they won't reply...happy mylotting...

Thats good.It is the same with me,I think deleting someone for a reason like their avatar is a very rude thing to do and very hurtful to the person.

I don't think that's a nice thing. Deleting someone because of your avatar. I don't really care about the avatar of other people. People have their own tastes including me.

that is what I think.I think people shouldn't look at the avatar,but only delete someone if they are rude.It is not important to them what avatar someone uses.

I agree with you.I respect others.Even if I don't like their avatar,I won't delete them.As you said,people have their own likes and dislikes. By the way,I like MJ,too.

I don't pay attention to who has what avi. There are some avis that are hard to look at, but I simply don't focus on that. Though what makes you think you get deleted as a friend souly based on your choice of avators? I don't understand why that is. An avi as that, and its up to the person to put up what they want.

Of course you can have any avatar you want that's your choice! I would never delete anyone because of an avatar. I think that is a stupid reason to do something like that. I hate to offend anyone but Michael Jackson had talent and honestly we wouldn't have pop music like it is today if it weren't for him. Take care, and you can add me as a friend if you like!

People shouldn't look at the avatar if they hate it so much.I think that people should not judge you on the avatar,but on the person you're like.

Hi Java, If people delete you simply for your avatar then I would imagine you don't need them as friends anyway. That's pretty shallow thinking. I am not a huge Micheal Jackson fan but I can't imagine judging someone else because they are. You are not the only one here with MJ for an avatar. I wonder if others have this same problem.

When people do delete me as a friend because of my avatar,I just think thats fine.If they hate my avatar so much,let them.

I dont take that much notice of an avatar. I wouldn't choose not to be friends with someone in 'real life' based on their looks so why would I reject someone because of a picture they chose. I'm sure the guidelines protect us from overtly offensive avatars so, as you say, everyone can have what they like.

No I wouldn't delete anyone for the choices they make for an avatar, it is their choice to make. If I was offended by something like that I wouldn't add them as a friend in the first place. A true friend would know that what you choose is what you want. If they didn't like it, they would tell you and leave it at that. So no big deal here when it comes to avatars.

No, of course not. I don't find it a good or even valid reason to delete a friend just because I don't like his or her avatar. I accept those who are my friends, and it doesn't matter if they are black or white!

I just think that you should look at the person with the avatar,not at the avatar.Does it affect people what you're avatar looks like?no.Thats why I accept all people.

Hi, Java09. No, I don't delete a friend because of their Avatar. That is silly. The avatar does not mean that this is the actual person that is on myLot. I love Micheal. I know that you like him and admire him. I would not delete you as my friend if you have the avatar of Micheal Jackson. We all are unique in our own ways so we can't expect everyone to be the same way here. Trolls will just have to understand this.

yes,that is exactly what I mean,we should respect what others like.Alot of people who hate Michael Jackson,got to respect who likes him...that goes for everything else.We all like diffrent things.

Hello Java, I have not deleted any friend for the moment. I will certainly never delete one for an avatar. You like Michael Jackson and I like French literature : mine is a caricature of an obscure author of the 19th century. What is important is that we can sit down together around a myLot interest and discuss. I don't care how my friends are dressed in real life, and I don't care about their avatar at myLot, though I like some avatars more than others.
