Personally, I have the moving avatars. It doesn't matter what the content is, it's the movement itself. Way too distracting for a forum, where what people are writing is the actual content. Movement naturally draws the eye toward it (it's a survival instinct, after all), so it makes reading content that is next to the graphic difficult.

That's why I rarely read Fire & Ice, incidentally. The constantly moving twitter feed and news ticker are annoying when the main content to consume is written. That kind of thing is great for video content such as television, where half the content that you're consuming is audio, but it's terrible when you're supposed to read the article.

That's also a big reason why I disable signatures on just about every forum I join. Some moron inevitably adds a graphic or something with some motion in it. The pervasive animated gifs on this forum have me "this close" to turning off avatars here... but then I wouldn't be able to see the hottie in Masked Fan's avatar. *sigh*
