Is it just me or do others find moving avatars annoying?

Is it just me or do others find moving avatars annoying? Why do we have to have them anyway? Yes I know that the Esc key will turn them off from the page I am viewing, but why should I have to? Can you make it preference choice in my set up page?

Go to options and uncheck show avatars and be done with the garbage!

Avatars? What avatars? I turned those off the day they were enabled.

AHHH! That's better.
Thanks for the info on how to turn the things off. In a way it's too bad because some of the images were interesting but I hate the flashing stuff.
I guess some people always have to push a good thing too far.
Thanks.
Rob.

I like them because they help to quickly recognize people. I once had an animated one, that changed image every 10 seconds, but I dropped it after a similar thread like this. Don't want to annoy anyone.

I'm like Frank, I think it helps to recognize folks. Some usernames are similar and it can be helpful. I also used to have an animated avatar, but after I read a few gripes about them I just found a pic of my favorite plane and used it instead.

It's nice to be able to shut them off if you like.
