On another forum, some of the posters were also having problems with the moving and flashing avatars.  After a discussion, it was agreed that we'd have a 'gentleman's agreement' to not use such things.  It's no big deal and if it makes forum life more comfortable . . .

The thread wasn't complaining about you personally, Lynne, but asking if there was a way to disable aspects of an avatar without having to ask someone to change an avatar they clearly like, and which doesn't appear to bother others.

Thanks , I may try the Firefox solution as long as it doesn't affect my other 'favorite' web-sites.  

I have asked judderslady on a thread if she can control it, merely to help  me to read her posts, as otherwise it may become too distracting.
 

If you have the "Adblock" add on you can right click the avatar and at the bottom of the list is an adblock image option.

Follow the simple instructions, block that particular image (usually the first option - the one with the .gif at the end), tick the box that says block end of address at the bottom and you can become your own God, as it only blocks that image on this site!!

Smittims if you download Firefox, it will import any of your favourites from other web browsers.

I think it's sad that Smittims and Susan's discomfort with the flashing avatars has been taken personally.  I know for Susan, she has problems with her eyesight and all of us should be more understanding about such things.  

Why though, am I not surprised that a polite general enquiry has caused controversy!
