I guess I always considered the Avatar is something you can use to help identify yourself... a quick visual cue as to who the author is writing the post. The Avatar represents you and can be anything as meaningful or whimsical as you choose, a logo or icon or whatever. Then, if someone was interested enough and wanted to learn more about you, they can go to your profile and also see a Profile pic to see what you might "really" look like, if you choose to put one up.
