I'd wonder if people might (at least initially) think the user actually chose
that avatar, not realizing it's a default avatar for the message
sub-board/group.  The avatars were intended as a user-chosen representation of
the user.  But, some online message boards to have default avatars..

 Hu> As a SysOp I should have full control over what is seen on my own BBS. No?

How far do you want to go with that?  With the avatar chooser module/script,
users can create their own avatar with it too (at least, that feature existed
at one point).  So you don't necessarily have full control over that.  What if
a user creates an avatar for themself that you don't like?
