Welcome to the boards.

My two cents: I find your nick-name outrageous.

It was actually a reference to the Last Crusade rather than a name designed to be purposely offensive. It was the only proper character name from the films that someone hadn't taken!

Sure, I wasn't pointing at the fact that you were eventually a Hitler-Fan, dude.
It's just that I think that it is tasteless to use this name, cause it represents much more than just a name of an historical character in a movie. It represents the living monstruosity of World War II etc, etc. well, you know what.

So, anyway, welcome and enjoy your stay!

hhhhhmmmmm I don't know if I would call the douche a 'proper character" I don't think Arab Thug #2 has been taken either.

Might want to change the handle.

100...as others have said. And as it says if you do a search in the FAQ for "avatars."

You don't get to use one of your own. It's a good rule.

Also, it's great that you're here and all, but there are other threads other than this one that you can post in.

I love that movie!

Anyway, I have to agree with what people are saying here...your name is a little offensive.

You can't upload your own. You have to take whatever is available for your number of posts, which is none until you reach a post count of 100.

Even if Adolf Hitler was a character in one of the Indiana Jones movies... the name itself is offensive. I'm kind of surprised you chose it. Why would you want to have a nickname or alias or whatever on here that reminds people of one of if not the most vile, wicked and evil person to ever live?

... for laughs or shock value?

It would be different if he were a fictitious character. But if nobody else minds enough then I guess it's fine. I just don't see why you'd want that.

He doesn't actually post anywhere save for in this thread - it's the shock value.

Unless, of course, he's trying to provoke us into embarassing responses as a part of a psychological study, but he could look any number of other places first to do that.

No, he's almost certainly just having a bit of fun, but a sociology or psychology student doing a thesis on fandom? Entirely possible.
