    There used to be a box in the preferences section of my profile that allowed me to block avatars, but I don't see it now. Am I missing it or is that function not available? FTR: No offense to anyone for their choices of avatars, I just prefer viewing the text content with as little visual distraction as possible.

    As far as I know, it's not possible to block avaters at this time. Ben mentioned that he is hoping to develop a bare-bones skin for RCF without avatars, sigs and EAYOR but I don't think it's ready yet.

    Still no plans to allow people to block / hide avatars?

    Could you place a large piece of masking tape vertically along the left side of your monitor screen? Doing my best to help those in need.... :bigthumbup:

    Thank you. Unfortunately that Chrome extension required me to hit the extension icon on every page visited to block images (it doesn't do so by default nor can you apparently set it to do so). However, I found another image blocker extension called Wizmage that does block by default. It replaces the images with a lightly colored box and doesn't seem to disrupt the formatting of the page. Also has an exclude function.

    Looks promising, we'll see how it goes. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
