Keh. Culturally backward and relying on Greek thinkers.

Ironically, it's in Latin.

Cool nonetheless.

Looks more like Corvus brachyrhynchos to me, but I'm no expert.

This is a really, really bad day to mess with me. I worked really hard designing that symbol for school. But since you guys want to make fun of it, I took it down.

PEACE.

Whoa. Nan, no one here was making fun of your avatar. We all think it's awesome. We were joking around about it because that's what we DO here, we joke around about stuff. It could have been any other member's new avatar that sparked something like this.

I'm sorry you're having a rough time, and you know that if there's anything we can do to help, all you have to do is ask. We're your friends -- we never meant to offend you.

Aw, cheer up, Nan. Myself and all the PHJ's agree that you are a very cool person indeed. Heck, even Sithbert thinks you're cool (yeah, I know he's a bit creepy looking, but still), and we never agree about anything!

Really, Nan, I said I liked it, and I meant that -- one thing you will never get from me is an empty compliment. None of the other stuff should be taken personally.

Yeah, I thought it was nifty too. I wouldn't have been making fun of it like that. :?

[Edit] That last bit is rather awkward, isn't it? What I meant was, supposing I even disliked it, it's awfully unlikely I would be making fun of it with such a comment.

I was just being punny. Sorry it made you feel bad.
