When users' profile pics include spouse or kids (or both), is it to be assumed that they all answer and ask questions on StackOverflow together? Or are they in the frame for moral support, generally speaking?

As it is safe to assume that Jeff answered this question while falling in a floor trap. –  Andrew Moore Jan 27 '10 at 3:39

If a custom gravatar is used, the profile picture must always be of the user. If you observe any violations of this rule, please report it to the site management.

Wait, is this meant ironically? Are you trying to tell us that you are NOT a very smart cat and possibly the only cat ever to gain more than a thousand Rep on Meta? Wow, thanks for shattering my dreams of a world ruled by intelligent cats, no milk for you tonight! –  Michael Stum Jan 27 '10 at 1:10

The profile picture (avatar) doesn't necessarily have to be a picture of the account owner. Very often it's just a picture the owner likes.

If a profile picture is of multiple people then it is assumed the youngest is the one at the keyboard asking questions.
