What is worse? The fact that the size of this particular gravatar is well over one megabyte, or that it is a complete Britney Spears video?
I just send this e-mail to Tom Werner of gravatar.com.
Hi Tom, I just encountered a gravatar in the form of an animated gif which features an entire Britney Spears videoclip. One can argue about whether or not a gravatar about Britney is bad by definition, but in this specific case there can be little doubt. The file size of the animated gif is well over one megabyte. http://www.gravatar.com/avatar.php? gravatar_id=944d37d314488b6c99b191ce5ce42749 Considering the potential abuse of these huge gravatars and as a result the annoyance of visitors of website that use gravatars, it might be best to enforce a maximum file size. With regards, Niels
