Discussion on: Do gifs bother you when reading an article?

Yeah but perhaps it's me, I don't know how to use them =D seriously!
Being a net citizen since the 90's makes me a bit uncomfortable and unused to these modern "emoticons". I was already fine with 8 bit fonts (= smileys.

Oooohhh boy... Old school emotes lol. Those were the days.

Funny enough I found myself in the same position about a year or two ago when I started using Discord. I felt like an old man not being able to keep up with all the gif reactions and custom emoji, it was overwhelming at first. After some time, I feel you'll get the hang of it though 😊
