It has something to do with sealclubbing I bet. But they're all cute. Most of them.

When experienced players take a trip back down to the lower tiers they tend to have the skills to easily kill the newbies without much opposition.

 

This has been compared to, and is sometimes referred to as, Seal Clubbing   http://www.peta.org/issues/animals-used-for-clothing/fur/canadian-seal-slaughter/

 

Those with seal Avatars seem to be empathising with those newbies.  Or it may be that they continue to feel that they occasionally get clubbed even at higher tiers.
