Oh, you have your Avatars stored on Gravatar? I didn't get that. But I'd rather not have to create another account for something I'd use on another account. Most sites that use avatars allow you to upload your own from your hard drive.
This is no reflection on you leocg, you've been helpful. But Opera has so many restrictions, so little personal preferences, and not much in the way of support. And I have seen and gotten myself notifications how these updates are for security purposes, yet somehow I don't believe that having to create accounts on other sites or allowing applications/ad ons etc is more secure.
