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.
Intolerance that actually matters is intolerance towards homosexuals, people of different religions, people of different races; not "intolerance" towards some silly animated images posted on a tennis forum.
You could have made the same point without resorting to some baseless and unnecessary sanctimonious comparison of this gif issue to starving children in Africa. Why even complain about people complaining about gifs when there are people dying in Africa?! Oh my god, could you be any more "bourgeoisie"
I will take care of Africa when I have the money, power, and influence to do so.
Which means never.
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.
What are you talking about? Someone said that too many gifs in a thread causes the thread to load slower. What the hell has that got to do with people insulting each oter on this board and people being racist?!
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.
No, they are not. The ones (sorry I meant one) that you post are annoying because it's the same shit posted over and over again and it's so huge that it requires extra effort to scroll past it. And like someone else said:

I know, I know. I don't know why he's not on my ignore list yet.
