Plus for the occasions that some kind vandal adds similar images to your user talk page so 
that you don't even know or have control over what is being displayed let along an ability 
to stop it.  An unfortunate eye opener in the workplace, or similarly at home when working 
with the family.  :-/

I do wish that this discussion can just move to implementation. This is about what I get 
to filter for what I get to see, or when I get to see it. I have had enough of other 
people believing that they get to make their choices for me.
