Suggestion box: .GIF-free threads.

I'm not sure if anyone else has this problem, but when you post .gif files in a thread, especially threads where there are already a .gif or two, it can really slow down the thread. This has been known to happen to myself and users on many other blogs that I've been on. Just opening the thread and spotting the .gif has produced the rainbow loading cursor and made me force quit my Safari multiple times even just today.

Because of this, I ask that you provide those of us whose computers don't respond well to .gifs the courtesy of refraining from posting .gifs in threads where it is not forewarned with something along the lines of "Here be .GIFs" in the title. If you absolutely have to post some hilarious .gif you found, either hyperlink it with text so one has to actually follow a link to witness your genius discovery, or make a separate .GIFstravaganza thread or something. I don't care. Just try and be mindful that .gifs can be fairly large files depending on their length and they run automatically, without warning or the need to be initiated.

Too many times I'll be reading up on something interesting and I'll scroll down or tab over to a Quack Fix and I'll have to restart my Safari just because somebody felt the need to post a .gif of a stormtrooper thrusting or something. 

Thanks.
