/ It would take years of fighting and fighting’s not fun.”Even for Newt Gingrich, who thrives on conflict, the fighting this primary season has not been that much fun.In December, forty-five per cent of the political ads in Iowa were Gingrich takedowns; the Super Restore Our Future, which supports Mitt Romney, spent nearly three million dollars on such ads, and in one month Gingrich went from top horse to underdog.
Until recently, Gingrich was fond of citing what he called Ronald Reagan’s eleventh commandment—“Thou shall not speak ill of fellow-Republicans”—and he often told audiences, “Barack Obama is my only opponent.” But since January 3rd, when he came in a distant fourth in the Iowa caucuses, he has found denigrating other Republicans considerably more palatable.

With that in mind, here are some profile pic problems that may warrant a pass.
“It’s probably the most annoying thing when someone is using a meme or a photo that doesn’t clearly define who they are, hiding behind sunglasses or in a group,” says Ray, adding that the same can be said for blurry or unclear photos.
When you’re dating online, transparency and trust are crucial—and a clear profile pic builds that.
But, if someone is putting up photos of them doing things that maybe you’re not into, such as smoking or partying hard, then that can be a red flag. “The username gives me an indication whether or not this person put thought into that username,” she says, explaining that it can reveal a lot about someone’s personality and whether or not they are serious about online dating, or just testing things out.
