from what i've experienced, if you leave a comment on a blog, or site and you have to include your e-mail address, and that site is linked to gravatar, your avatar will show up next to your comment (at least it's happened to me)
So, it's just tough **** that your cover is blown on this site when your avatar shows up on another site with your name listed?
The last thing I want is a link to A2K through some other site and my identity exposed.
What's up with this Gravatar business and why isn't there an option NOT to have your avatar spread all over the world wide web?
when you sign up to create an avatar at gravatar they make it blindingly obvious that anything you do tied to the e-ddress you use there will be linked by way of that avatar - I'm honestly surprised that you hadn't been aware of this
The information was given on the blog page.
"Gravatars are â€śGlobally Recognized Avatarsâ€ť and were developed by the folks responsible for Word Press. It works as a third party provider of avatars that allows you to use the same avatar on multiple sites."
