i tried to upload or choose an avatar for my profile here, and i get this ridiculous hype for "gravatar dot com" ... so, now I have to join another stupid "club" with another stupid user-name, stupid password, and more stupid, unnecessary crap to remember, just to choose a stupid avatar?
what ever happened to "upload your own" or choose from our bland, creepy little, personality-free "mickey mouse" icons, so you hide even more who you really are, and join our club of anonymous "talking heads".
whew. that was a grueling mouthful.
don't you geeks get it? how much more complexity and arcane tortured paths do we need to walk on, when life itself is calling for simplicity and straightforward-ness?
