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"?

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:

Probably aren't annoying if it wasn't Hian posting them. The end.

'bye bitch' and 'look at all the fucks I give' are just annoying. How would you feel if someone ran up to you and said 'look at all the fucks I give' in your face? You'd want to punch them.

She ain't the first one banned from WTAland whose parked up here. Why do we have to be a hostel for their rejects?

As I previously stated, you can put me on ignore list if you are not able to stand my posts I have no problems with anyone, but I really understand that Gifs can annoy some people.

Guys, you need to understand that some of you don't like them, but others do. Until even just one person will be pleased with gifs (Pocahontas, Snow White, Movies etc.) we are entitled to use them.

And is this really your biggest problem at the moment? I hope not.

And it seems you want your opinion to be dominant, since you don't accepte other people can find it amusing.

Plus, stop with the story of WTA World for users like me who were banned from there. I am a user like you here, and I find no difference.

This thread means everybody is entitled to open a thread to ask something in this board gets closed. I don't like "mug" because it is offensive, and the racism of users like Helevorn, or the insults some users like me receive for being original. And yes, IGNORE me and there will be no problems.

Differently from you, I love to have a different opinion and a different way to share it. If it is cause to be banned, then ban me, if you think you will solve the problem. If this is a real problem, honestly.

Name me one poster who thinks posting the same GIF in every match thread is genuinely funny?

Is Hian some WTA world reject? If he got a perma ban there he migrated over here maybe.

I've changed my mind about this, they are annoying and should be considered trolling violations.

MTF Overreacting and bitching like usual about non important things, calling ppl retards being racistic and acting violent on posters isnt a big deal, few gifs from one poster and all of the sudden we have thread for it. Pathetic really.

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?
Lol, look who's talking I don't remember when I read something this stupid, you've outdone yourself.

That is such garbage. If the mods see racist posts, discriminatory behaviour or threats of violence then the offenders are sent packing.

The reason there's no thread for it is because there is nothing to discuss there. It's not acceptable, period.

Then i dont know what are mods doing cause lately u can see offensive posts on daily basses. If posters on MTF are annoyed by gifs they can block the person who post them, then end. Banning gifs or banning posters because of this is pretty much really stupid. I personaly dont find those Gifs funny but srsly overreacting much?

Then they're not being reported. We don't read every single word posted, especially in a very busy period in the middle of a grand slam, but we DO deal with every post report - which is why this thread exists in the first place.

If you're seeing these things on a daily basis, why aren't you reporting them?

Please scoobs, PLEASE.

Just read at Helevorn posts. A user who had written, in his signature, that he hated all the players from Italy and everytime insults them, and this is not racism? But yeah, I agree gifs are way more important, for sure.
