Something to block ALL forum avatars

Prefer a plugin for Firefox to do this. I work in IT for a large company and even though I use a proxy, I still get uncomfortable surfing forums where every other avatar is a half naked chick or something else that's pretty dirty. I'm no prude, I enjoy them, I just don't want to get fired when someone sees that. I use Ad Block Plus, but it's pretty tedious to block each individual avatar the first time you see it. How bout filter ALL avatars on ALL forums? Someone must be clever enough to have recognized the common code on each popular distribution of forum software (vBulletin, phpBB, IKon, etc) that can filter them out.

Doesnt adblock or one of those plugins have an option to block all images on a page?

That's probably the easiest way

Couldn't you just block everything from the http://web01.genmay.com/userav/avatars directory? That'd work for genmay, at least.

Oh wow, I didn't know you could block a whole directory. That knocks off a big chunk of avatars that I don't want!! Thx

you could also simply view the forum in lite mode which hides damn near everything.

lower right hand corner of the genmay page. drop down menu. and genmay lite. No avatars no pics and no youtube crapfests.

Opera has an option to browse pages where the images won't load by default. Then if you want to see one, you just right click on the blank box and select Reload Image.

or you could just go to User CP > Edit Options and uncheck the Show Avatar box.

Yes, admittedly it doesn't stop showing all though. DM's and DC's don't stop showing but they aren't nsfw anyway.

They use scripts, pulling the avatars from their own personal websites.

I realize you're new around here, but you should be aware that browsing genmay at work is generally not a good idea. As such, I have devised a clever solution to keep you employed:
