I have pondered this question at various times over the last number of years I have been on MacRumors. Do some individuals get off on finding the most obnoxious images they can, simply to draw attention or comment? Do some think it accurately portrays their personality (ugh)? Do some just think it's an amusing touch? In complying with forum rules, I won't mention which avatars I personally think fall into this category, but I'm sure others have had similar feelings. In the overall scheme of things this is a pretty trivial and irrelevant thread, but I'm curious as to what others feel.
