PS. That is how ridiculous your argument is.
I believe that we can advance, sure, but only to a point. And at what cost? We as humans cannot advance to our highest potential until everyone on the planet has adequate food, water, shelter, education, and a means to advance their lives at the bare minimum. We as humans cannot advance to our highest potential when so few own so much and so many have nothing. What kind of advancement is that? What good is a new cure for a disease when those that need it the most cannot come close to affording it?

Re: Animated GIFs in GM

The gifs should be somewhat related to the result or tennis. Just random tv show gifs are ridiculous.

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?
This is literally the worst post I have ever seen on MTF. That's ****ing impressive.

Out of GM is a wise suggestion.

You caught me there. I was serious about Premium members on MTF being the bourgeois class, and me, as a regular member, being a part of the oppressed working class.
Workingmen of the whole MTF, unite!

Just ban Hian and peace will resume.

Not when they are overdone. Hian has Poke-a-haunted GM one too many times.

That.

That latter one is cheeky. If someone said the real life version of that in a city street they'd get chinned.

Yeah, but it's not like Hian is the only one with the gif spam on GM.

Re: Animated GIFs in GM

I must say I applaud the use of the poll by the administration of these forums.

May I suggest respectfully that other polls such as this one be made about other similar topics, and that those future polls also include the stop nannying us option?

I am Bigjohn and I approve this post.
It is mod worthy.

Re: Animated GIFs in GM

I don't like them at all because and maybe I have just been unlucky, but the only ones I have seen have the words B*tch and F*ck in them! I have even added one poster to my ignore list because of them. I won't mention the poster's name, but I think everyone knows who it is!

Re: Animated GIFs in GM

so many haters.

Gifs are pretty funny, honestly, but everyone is entitled to have his own opinion and his way to express it. Just put people who use GIFs in ignore list.

I don't like people who say mug, but I don't open a thread to state this. And I am shocked some staff member do it.
