While I'm at work, I don't want to know you're a dog. November 13, 2007 10:02 AM   Subscribe

I would like an opt-out of viewing profile pictures. I use the plain template at work, and the images, while usually SFW, are really, um, attention-grabbing.

Yes, I know I can block ALL images in my browser, but I'd rather not.

There are icons, flickr photos and other "distractions" on user pages already. If your work is that touchy about another small photo on a page, maybe it's better to skip profile pages at work.

Or you can install AdBlock if you use Firefox and block http://www.metafilter.com/images/profile

Or you can right click on a profile image in Firefox and click "Block images from Metafilter.com."

Boy, it's been really great seeing everyone's favorite humorous 140x140 image, though. I can just feel the sense of community swelling in me.

Wait, who's got NSFW profiles?

Or browse MetaFilter using workFRIENDLY and everything looks like a Word document.

Workfriendly saved my life. Shortly before I had to leave the country.

Hey, could you please give me links to some of the more, um, attention-grabbing ones? You've piqued my interest.

Iconomy: there's some discoloration going on there that you might want to have checked out by a professional.

I cropped mine to be SFW. Iconomy, shame on you!

I just changed mine so I'm not grabbing anything anymore, including but not limited to attention.

I don't think that's community you're feeling.

I want to go back to hating you all for how dumb you are, not how ugly you look. =(
