Of course, I'm not... because I have a cat at my icon. But I see all these photos of people in their icons, and then I read their questions and responses and I start to question whether their pictures is of them or someone else. For example, I've been following someone who is in my friends list and I thought it was a man because there is a photo of a man in the icon. But when I read the questions, they are reading as if it's a female, not a male. Some of the profiles will tell you if they are M or F, but not all of them. So, if you have a picture as your icon, is it you??? If not, who is it and why?

I unfortunately am not Tinkerbell. Sorry to disapoint you! :D If I were to post an actual picture as may avator - I wouldn't post as someone else. I think that's rediculous. How are people to trust the information that you offer on discussions if they cannot trust your avator.

Well. I am very happy that you brought this up! Of course, these are my two babies. I was wondering also why somepeople were getting so many responses and I found out it was for their fake sexy icons. Good luck!

Yes,the picture is of me at my place of work. I know I have many discussions that appear strange for a male,but I am open and often a little blunt. But I do enjoy this board and mainly answer interesting discussion more than post them.

I have no idea. Initially I was also perplexed. And when I chose an icon, I did pet with the idea of changing it according to the topics, but then realised that the icon would change then with my previous discussions as well. So, at present I have this picture of Russell Crowe in his ruminative mood in A Beautiful Mind. That represents me in many ways, and, I hope, that it does not distract the readers much, or leads them to confuse the icon with the real identity of me.

No I am not the person pictures in mylot icon I do not even have a picture there actually, most of my friends in their profiles do tell me if they are a woman or man, not just by their pictures in their icons.

No, the person pictured in my icon is not me, but I am female. The picture is Suzumiya Haruhi, from the anime "Melencholy of Haruhi Suzumiya" (translated name). I picked that picture because it looks cool, and Haruhi is an interesting and amazing person. She's rather eccentric, though.

Well mine of course currently isn't, but yes usually i have a picture of myself there. :) I put some up in my profile as well. I think it would be cool if everyone did that to tell you the truth. I think it's cool to be able to know what the person you are talking to looks like. I think it makes it more real and not like you are just "talking" to a computer. :)

actually, no I'm not! lol! I know, I asked a silly question when I don't even have my real picture up there! I guess I'm referring more to people who put a picture up of a person that isn't them hoping to get more responses....

Of course, I'm not as well. LOL It's very obvious, there are lots of pervert out there on the net. (You are not one of them I am very sure of!) And that is probably the main reason why people are a bit reluctant in giving their own picture as their avatar straight away. As for me, I don't put myself there because I guess if someone really put their effort to know more about me, I should give them a credit for that. I would also like to know more about the other person but perhabs not straight away.

No, I am not the person pictured in myloy icon, but my family says this is the way I am. I have 2 or 3 t-shirts that say Grumpy University or something like that. I dont think that I am grumpy all the time but maybe I am. I am trying to change that.

No. I haven't uploaded yet my photo. One of these days I try to do so. My icon is a pig. I think its cute that's why I used it as my icon.
