Can you post some examples?
I'd like to see what you're talking about.
How's my Avatar?

Because if it's not, you're ranting over something you have control over.

Ok I have been keeping this to myself for a long time,someones avatar just set me off. It is so annoying when you are scrolling down a post and you are trying to read a post and the avatar is either animated (moving) or an optical illusion.
A message to those with annoying avatars.
Ok so you want an annoying avatar, so do you realize I almost never read your posts because either I cant focus enough to read or it bugs my eyes and I don't read it at all.
Fast moving avatars or avatars moving from side to side or up and down rapidly especially are extremely annoying.
Mind trick optical illusions can also be extremely distracting if you are trying to read.
Please stop using annoying avatars so that I can read your posts THANK YOU!
I wonder if you might be a high functioning, intelligent autistic.
Maybe you are more sensitive to sensory overload than most. PTSD maybe?
And those avatars set you off because the movement triggers areas in your mind that are involved in defense against aggressors.
