Just get over it, Jesus. There are people starving in Africa, people working for 33 cents an hour in Chinese sweatshops and we are complaining about gifs?

How about some fucking perspective?
But gifs are so annoying

I agree with banning Hian.

What the fuck is this shit? Click on what links? The gif is there as a fucking image. In case you haven't realised, the ignore list is pretty much useless when the ignored post is being quoted by other posters.

Yeah there are so many other pressing problems in the world. Why do we even bother discussing tennis then? You're so indulgent and bourgeoisie for giving a fuck about tennis. Get off your high horse and stop sermonising; it's annoying as hell and even more annoying than Hian and his stupid Pocahontas gif.

Such BS

I think people already know my opinion about the topic...they're annoying as f*ck and should be banned from GM.

Monaco - Del Potro - Nadal - Wawrinka - Robredo - Dimitrov - Chardy - Berdych

Huh? When I read a thread in GM, the gif appears as a link. Either I can click it, or not click it. So for me, gifs are really not a big deal. MTFers need to get some fucking thicker skin and not try to ban anything that they don't like. It is just intolerance, something I am guilty of too, but something I am working on. Just let things roll off your back, most 99% of things in life are really not that important. It sometimes grinds my gears to see people complaining about bullshit that doesn't matter, and yes, I do understand the irony of my sentence as I'm typing it.

As for your other paragraph, bitch please

Well i don't get a link, I get the gif just like most people.

And she is right about everything else. Your comparison was childish and random. If you think like that, you might as well leave everything behind and go volunteer in Africa.

Re: Animated GIFs in GM

Lettuce be real tea, the free market is pivotal for success and seeing how MTF wants to climb to no.1 in the forum rankings, we should allow GIFs.

Re: Animated GIFs in GM

Must be the premium member thing to only get the links to gifs.
Talk about the Bourgeoisie

Why is that?

There must be some type of option in the User CP/Control Panel of MTF where you can have the link and not the gif

I will take care of Africa when I have the money, power, and influence to do so.

Talk about the Bourgeoisie, go talk to the mods or the forum administrator, or the VerticalScope people who really run this site and other sports forums. They are the true Bourgeoisie. One day I will get to be one of the 1% of the world, one day I will indeed be the Bourgeoisie, but instead of using it to propogate debt and poverty and the oppression of the working class, I will use that status to enhance the rights and living conditions of the 99%. But I'm not running for President of USA for another 30 years or so

So until we feed the people in Africa, the rest of the world cannot advance? You should tell all the scientists in the world they can't try to change anything until they feed people in Africa.

PS. That is how ridiculous your argument is.
