I like Ruthless. I've met him IRL* at an io9 meetup. So this isn't personal against him. But I think we can do come up with something else in that spot up top besides his avatar.
Looking at how some of the other sub blogs look under the new Kinja they have something other than the admin's avatar in there.
So there must be a way to change the image. Any ideas or suggestions?
