Re: Animated GIFs in GM

I started a thread to ask what people in general thought about an issue that is generating a lot of reported posts.

I'm not calling anyone a mug. People are free to draw their own conclusions on that, and other matters.

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.

A "bye bitch" pocahontas after every result is not humor.

Re: Animated GIFs in GM

And LMAO at people who say that a gif makes a thread slower.
It's not. People insult each other on this board, there are some racist users and so on, and a gif doesn't change anyone's life, I hope.

They are funny, honestly. Even when I put some with "bye bitch" is obvious I do it for make people laugh. Some people laugh, like messages and goodreps sent to me show, but others don't. But this is something that happens for every fuc*ing thing in our society: some people like, some don't.

Don't strip away the gifs, please.

Re: Animated GIFs in GM

Re: Animated GIFs in GM

Hian is telling all the people not enjoying his gifs to basically go screw themselves, so ignore his input in this thread please.

GIFs should only be used on special occassions. I would not ban gifs per se, but instead ban posters overusing them (since it becomes forum disruption).

I agree with Snowie. We should ban gifs in GM for the advancement of mankind (on MTF)!

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?

Oh god, another pathetic attempt by JG to against the majority and get on his high horse. This comparison is ridiculous even by your standards. Trust you to bring up that tripe in a thread like this.

I said weeks ago Hian should be banned and or asked to stop spamming those lame gifs. I can't remember how many times GM has had Hian as the lost poster in about 10 threads in a row all with identical posts...

Re: Animated GIFs in GM

Solution - on the signup page, ask them what their favourite version of tennis is. Profit.

Re: Animated GIFs in GM

Should be considered as forum disruption. I am tired of several posters downright spamming gifs, they should be temp banned at least.

I suggest he receives an infraction for forum disruption.
