Well, where to start?
First to say, I'm not a nazi nor a communist. The only reason why I like their images or stuff is because I am amused with it and I love WW2. One more thing - when I see those gray stars where the images of artists should be, I get a sudden urge to upload an image of the artist.
The other day, I got muted by last.fm (meaning I couldn't write anything anywhere on last.fm, only send private messages. Then I got this PM:

Apparently the reason was that I uploaded an avatar consisting af a red star and a swastika in it (well, maybe that's wrong in some kinda view, but for me it was just paradox fun, nothing more), that I uploaded a picture for this artist - Adolf Hitler
, which they deleted afterwards, even though there have been a picture there for like forever, and there is a picture now which they didn't delete(yet!), and one more reason is that I uploaded this picture -
in my About me section, even though they didn't delete it, I deleted it myself . And infact, this isn't the nazi swastika anyway.
And I don't understand a lot of things here. If this ''artist's'' - Adolf Hitler
pictures are forbidden, why isn't there the same thing with this ''artist'' - Mao Zedong
, who killed much more people than the first one? Or this ''artist'' - Benito Mussolini
, who was also fascist? And what about these ''artists'' - Joseph Stalin
, Francisco Franco
, and other genocide-loving dictators? This is double-standard.
Not that I love Hitler or something, but how can swastika be banned, but a red star, under which rule was killed many more people than under the swastika, not? That doesn't make sense. Only if everyone here were jews. Or opposite from heterosexual. I hope I won't get banned or something because of writing this journal, but I would like it to be fair, which is not. And another thing, a simple picture of Adolf Hitler is banned, even though it is in educational purposes, and his pictures can be found everywhere on the net. Nonsense. And interesting that he mentiones the swastika symbol, but says nothing about a red star. Like Stalin, Mao, Tito and other didn't kill anybody or done anything evil.
