Ban Animated Gif's

 in Security

Some of them contain malware and they are just annoying. I think we should ban animated gif's. They are basically spam anyway.

In my opinion it would speed up the page load times and be less stress on the servers. There can still be sigs and avatars just static ones. :)

Animated .gif's may not be malware, exactly, but they are annoying. And, they take up time on the loading of the screen.. Plus, they are unnecessary, in my opinion.

It's a thumbs down for me too.

I unfortunately had to click thumbs down this time. Some of them are pretty cool and even some of the annoying ones are still amusing to a point.

The thing I hate the most on KAT. Yeah some are hilarious but after watching during 5 minutes a 2 seconds clip playing in a loop, the fun is totally gone and the animated gif avatar that used to be funny becomes annoying like all the other ones. And the animated gif banners!!! ARRRG! Worse than avatars because it's bigger! So I agree with somethingvague, no more animated gifs of any kind.
