Just so you know, I've had to change this avatar of mine (see below) because someone reported me for using it (after months of using this avatar with no complaints whatsoever).
How ironic is it when there all these posts about sex, orgasms, squirting and whatnot.
Oh well, it's changed now. Happy?
Speaking as a poster, I don't personally mind your reported avatar in the least. At the same time, I'm not sure that a forum that was founded for the purpose of helping expats to adjust to life in Indonesia is truly a suitable place for explicit discussion of orgasms and the like.
However, having said that...I do not regard a gesture which means (at least in my home country) "f**k you" as being analogous to a discussion of pleasure. Equating a hostile hand gesture with consensual sexual relations seems to me like equating being told "go to hell" with a chat about backrubs.
Sez I, the poster.
ETA: Semiotics of hand movement aside, I much prefer the avatar you've substituted. As I recall, I gave you positive rep the first time I saw it. That's because I'm a nerd at heart.

I have absolutely no doubt that the report was motivated by petty board politics and that the person who reported it just wanted to piss you off. And I am pretty sure that all mods are aware of it.
I support Puspa in the message she's sent you and in her above post. It was a polite request and you had the good taste to change it. However I am not sure that your thread helps in any way the forum and I believe it breaches our policy. There is a PM system to question moderators decision as you are certainly aware of. I can't recall having ignored any of your request concerning moderation and am pretty sure that any mods here would do the same. Personally I only ignore people I feel waste my time. You're not among them.

Kami harus melakukan sesuai dengan persyaratan dan peraturan yang berlaku untuk Indonesia lebih baik.
Please, only moderator related questions (and fun stuff) by PM. Kindly post law related questions to the public forum so that answers can help the whole community.
