Someone did ask you about it on your visitor messages but you never answered, so the next best thing was to ask a mod.

It's a crazy picture to put up without any explanation, and people were concerned for the physical health of the horse, and possibly your mental health if you'd taken a picture of a badly injured animal and were using it as your avatar.

Well, she's not responsible of those people, whose minds' are that polluted with the violence that's circulating in the media, that the first thing was to see a horribly injured horse, not a horse with something on his back... My first thought was that it's just a horse with something on the back and I had to imagine it being an injured horse to see what many were seeing.

The new avatar is very pretty, though. :)

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

Oh yes, all those warped, evil minded people. Darn them for daring to be concerned!! They just have evil, polluted minds!!!!

Might want to tuck your superiority complex back up under your skirt there, Saranda.

Actually I did see that, and I did answer it, but not until yesterday... Because I haven't been on in a few days.

And I didn't think anything of it because to me all I see if a horse with a sweat shirt. Also the visitor message wasn't posted until yesterday morning, and by then I had already been contacted by two moderators and had explained the photo to them. So no, nobody asked about it before it was reported. No I'm not mad that someone didn't ask before reporting, I'm just surprised is all

Hush, SR, have a cup of cocoa on this night of full moon and lunar eclipse. We're all entitled to have our opinions, and I respect yours, as well as it would be nice of you to respect mine. ;)

Besides, I NEVER wear a skirt.

Speed Racer, why are you thinking so negatively?
In the end there was no harm done to anyone, so being negative will not do anyone any good.
And Saranda wasn't using any superiority, what she says is actually true. If you look at PETA, they are always doing their best to help animals, and I do support their efforts. But at the same time there is the odd time where they go a bit over the top, because they are looking for animals to help and consequently always thinking in a negative manner. Maybe that's not a good example to use, but I hope you see what I'm saying and will understand :)

For the record, I left the visitor message asking about it, but I wasn't the one that contacted the Mods. I don't even know how to do that.
