Animated Icons are ...

... cute for about the first minute, and then they quickly become annoying. Are the new post-count-based icons here to stay?

I love that image of the guy working at the computer. It's a regular reminder of why I quit my job.

And I still have some good money bet on which pac-man would win the sword fight, and whether one would win before c-t's guy caught a fish...

Have to agree on the animated stuff.........it is cute for about 10 seconds and then is irritating from then on.

Oh, poo. Why rain on a parade? They don't bother me.

Just to throw a little water on the fire, I won't bore folks with the things here that I do find irritating. [There does not seem to be a suitable emoticon for a sancitmonious little bastard, so you-all even missed that one.]

Cheers from the land of short trees.

Re: Animated Icons are ...

I hate them too and I think Lex's colors are a bit on the fruity side. But I like mine and I'm sure everyone else does too
