^^ Avatars lose their shine eventually, at first they make your posts seem more colorful or otherwise set the mood better, but they can get stale eventually (a point I thought the red-haired girl had started to reach... whoever she is ). I came across some Hyouka icons in my journey across the internet for a new avatar, and decided upon Chitanda because she's probably the most avataresque of the bunch, even if Oreki's my favorite character.
Also, I read the last few chapters of PPPL again and made a list of things to comment on. Next week: PPPL review, Thanksgiving Edition.
Thanks, Triple! That gave me an extra 26 rep points (595 -> 621). Someone neg repped me for being a bigot for saying something negative about Obama (because obviously disagreeing with some of his policies makes me a racist), but now my Soul Gem has been cleansed reputation is back where it should be.
Also, don't let the neg reps bother you. Take them as badges of honor reflecting your courage to post controversial opinions. Some of my own best posts (in my own opinion) were ones that were neg repped, lol.
