Would it surprise you if I said that I read that as, "Hello, Murray"?

Sneaking up behind you, in a gorilla mask, crashing cymbals, perhaps?

Do you mean Che Guevara holding a picture with hammer and sickle in one hand and a picture of Fidel in the other?

Wouldn't Che rather be holding a gun of some sort?

Isn't it especially bad on the religion and politics boards? Well, maybe not here, but have you seen what it's like on other forums? And haven't players in the game threads, at the very least, become snippy?
