If it werent that sad it'd be funny. You got what you wanted so you can
stop defending your position and even avoid to (*gasp*) think about it.

"Uh, this is getting too hot for me, let Dave pick the potatoes from the
fire since he is the one who implemented my wish". How convenient.
I can think of a lot of reasons for Dave to a) remove the image and b)
keep the image removed. This discussion being the first one (even
without considering the positions exchanged ). I certainly won't ask
him to put it up again because this is of no vital interest to me.
However, as my friends probably will confirm, discussions about morale
and/or "the right thing" *are* of a great interest to me and I firmly
believe that your motives (or at least what I think your motives are -
you did not object my interpretation yet) are the utterly wrong reason
to put down a baby picture.
Usually I think hard before picking a position in a discussion. I am
also prepared to change my position in a discussion, but this won't
happen without any arguments. Hardly getting any is a disappointment.
I'll happily defend my opinion about that, however since you've chosen
the easy route to not to argue about it, I'll stop holding my breath.
What a pity. This could have been an interesting discussion.
 Please note, that the removal of the image does not necessarily
mean, that Dave agrees with your opinions on a rational level. His
description of the events very clearly indicates an emotional reaction -
this is by far easier to accept for me than your poking in the fog.
