What do you feel about Filo V's current avatar?

Is it in good taste?

For all the ills caused by religions and Christianity, Jesus himself was a noble man/entity all along, if the legends are true.

Obviously, a person who can bear torture of the cruelest sorts, wouldn't show his finger that way.

Also, those who feel it is acceptable in the forums, would the same be acceptable on a highway billboard?

“When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.”

Re: What do you feel about Filo V's current avatar?

The tastefulness of my avatar means little to me. I chose it because it's a powerful figure saying fuck you by giving the one-finger salute. That's my mentality............towards a lot of people, not just on here, but overall. No-one knows my thoughts so no-one is in the position to deduce what my intent is and ultimately, I'm doing this for me and not anyone else. If others can't handle it, they can ignore.

Whatever the intent is, at least some things should stay untouched.

His playing style is also of interest, he is the most technically pure moonballer on the tour
miles ahead of Nadal in esthetic terms, complete with a never-failing trademark grunt. A legend.

There is always adblock if you use firefox, comes handy in case of some avatars and/or signatures

Thanks for this. I find Filo's avatar to be offensive, and I don't say that a lot.

Re: What do you feel about Filo V's current avatar?

so you use your avatar to say someone " fuck you " because you don't have balls to say them that face to face . and if you searching someone strong to encourage yourself better use Hulk Hogan or someone like that . It doesn't sound scary when saint man says " fuck you " to somebody

Well, I can't see you face to face to say fuck you to you, now am I right? I think so.

Did I say fuck you to you? No. But if you want to be a little baby and whine to the administrators, go ahead. Says more about you than anything.

Re: What do you feel about Filo V's current avatar?

I'm indifferent but probably some people don't like it (as we can see in this thread). But honestly, Jesus probably looked nothing like that . But I guess the thing it implies matters for some.

After Nadal beat Monfils at Doha, before AO 2014

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

Yup, just having hair and beard doesn't make one Jesus... it's just some hairy dude showing finger, which is not a surprising choice for the user in question anyway.

People with very low IQs tend not to learn quickly. Plus it's a c**t.
