The "Gif Thread" ?? That's for people to showcase gifs -- "hey, look what I just made" or "look what I just found on the internet." The gifs you're complaining about are being used to supplement commentary (or they are
the commentary). No one's going to go to the "gif thread" to post the "bye bitch" gif after a Nadal loss; the point is to post it in the match thread. (Whether you think these animations are a good or bad form of commentary is a separate issue, and again, a completely subjective matter of taste.)
This was your argument in the "ban the Castle lingo" thread, too.
I know you're Canadian and we're supposed to be obsessed about not offending people and all that crap, but really I think you're wasting a lot of time and energy on this "Oh, heavens! What will people think?" attitude. Worrying about what people will think is pointless; you can't please everyone all the time. Just a waste of anyone's energy to be so concerned with maintaining some kind of 'image'. Unless you're a stakeholder in this website, it should be of no concern to you. I know I'm not losing any sleep over it.
You consider the Bye Bitch gifs as constructive commentary? I just lost some esteem for you...
As far as wasting time and energy on these issues, I can't be faulted for having the best interests of this site at heart. Just more evidence I am mod worthy: senseful, courteous, considerate, not a tard, not Amish, wanting to help improve this site... The whole package.
