You can still get this behavior, you just need to focus it using the keyboard
(e.g. using Cmd/Ctrl+K then Tab).

Less nerdy visitors here may not realize that the animated GIFs are causing their browser to slow down or freeze up. They may think that the forum itself is very very slow. They may find it helpful to know that:
On Firefox and Internet Explorer, you can press the Escape key to stop animated images from playing. Or, if AdBlock is installed in Firefox, right click on the image to block it permanently.
Chrome and Safari do not have a built in way to block images. On a Mac, I think the easiest way is to just block the website that the offending signature loads from, by editing the /etc/hosts file and adding the line:

None in stock. Everyone I know thinks Vista sucks.
Today I'm buying the exact same HP laptop at Office Despot.
Same $449 price but with Windows 7. 3GB with 320GB HD
16' rect screen , DVD+-RW burner, wireless N etc etc.
Don't know anything about 7 either except some say it's almost the same
as Vista. Guess we're stuck with whatever Gates jams down our throat
(or is it up our ass) Of course there's Mac's or Unix.

Yet another "revolutionary" apple product that does something not-as-well as an existing and less expensive product, while at the same time locking its users into a unilaterally-controlled media outlet.
