I have a confession to make. I am not Jeff Atwood (surprise!). However, I happened to have (and still do, except on meta apparently) his picture as my gravatar just for fun. It certainly wasn't pornographic in nature, though I'll admit, some might find it offensive. The gravatar was simply replaced and the email in my profile was appended with the string "+bad_gravatar". What gives? Are there special gravatar rules for meta?
What is meta?

As you're fortunately self-aware, you're not Jeff Atwood, so please save yourself the embarrassment by not using his picture.
There are no special Gravatar rules for meta; the person who changed your email probably did not notice you were using the same Gravatar email across all sites so neglected to propagate the change across your profiles. So I've done that now.
