I don't mind the subtle ones. The blinky ones that induce seizures, however, I could live without. (Sorry, Seawtich!)
I also think that there's a time & a place for animated gifs. If you find yourself on /b or in a LOLcats forum, then by all means, animate until you're blue in the face.
In a forum for coders, though? Probably not so much. You can get away with it, but as I said, subltety is the key.
How's that for $0.02?
i tried making myself once.
but i checked out that you can not design a animated avtar of your own.
Then how does everyone else get one? Is there an animated avatar police that prevents you from creating your own, or is it that you do not know how?

Blessed be those who wallow through the quagmire of Window$ tainted with a mystical feather and multicolored hot-air balloon, for they too are offered the freedom of FOSS to expand their horizons and break the shackles of their shame. Amen. ;)
