You know I am with you on this. Why, I can remember one embarrassing evening at a lovely little Irish pub that became flooded with child avatars that all looked like little tarts, and had terrible manners. (*sigh*) That was a big clusterfuck of everything a child avatar can do wrong.
Just say no to bling pacifiers! Especially if you’re supposed to be 7.
