Some people hate em others love em, should we allow animated images in avatars?

We've had this discussion internally and haven't been able to reach a resolution so it's up to you, the people...

Amongst the reasons (I've been given) against are:

Annoying
Painful
Distracting
Bad if you're on dial up

I said no, because although I have nothing against animated avatars as such, some people just have no taste

I've said no as I find them a distraction.

I've said no because they are distracting - however if someone has a moving avatar I just press the esc button and it stops moving - until I refresh the page or look in a different thread when I have to do it again if necessary.

They are distracting. Just because you can do things with technology it doesn't necessarily follow that those 'things' are worth doing.

I've voted no. On grounds of taste.

I was so relieved when I saw the poll result that I'm not the only one who finds them too "flashy".

I come in here for a rest from all that bells and whistles stuff.

Couldn't you make your wind-turbines move?

Oh, no we won't be allowed.

Simon, I made a short video of these for my blog and it came out as a minute of blurry semi-stationary cheapo windcharger with what sounded like wind sound effects in the background...

Would be nice though for an avatar ! but as I don't approve of that sort of thing...humph

I said no, because although the few we have on here don't bother me too much (apart from that flying saucer of Ruby's that made me feel sick), if I stumble on to a forum where everyone has them I can't stand it.
