Apropos of making things a little more human here, particularly during the election, some of you may be wondering how some of us have pictures appear when we post whilst others have a generic sideways G. That’s because we’ve built a profile here on Slugger and registered at Gravatar.com to upload said picture.
It can be any picture you like, not necessarily a picture of your good self… You can also complete a short biog at the back end of the site. If you ‘judge’ other posters contributions (positively or negatively) it shows whom you most agree with on the site and whom you don’t.
