I'm at the mercy of someone who includes animated gifs in every email. Hold me, someone.
This calls for a Netizen's arrest:

Orange crayon font and prismatic sparkles are precisely the sort of thing I'm dealing with here.

There, there.

That's why I read email in text only mode.

When I moved from working in a bank branch to finally getting my degree and moving to a software development division, the quality of my e-mails from coworkers skyrocketed. Not just in terms of gifs, but also internet gullibility, jingoism, and general racism and xenophobia. I ain't going back, and you can't make me.

I've literally spent weeks of my time (and many of somebody's dollars) tracking down an office-wide spyware infection that was - you guessed it - spread by an animated gif. One special snowflake simply could not make it through their day without attaching it to every email - intentionally. Every time I finished antivirus/spyware scanning the entire 100+ PC network, it would reappear a day or two later. Snowflake even had the temerity to complain about the inconvenience of having to go back to the smiley-gif website and re-install the blasted thing after every cleanup.

All of which is a roundabout way of suggesting that you delete every single email from the gif-abuser, and simply feign ignorance: "Your email? No, I never got anything. Wait, here's a warning from my antivirus, saying it has destroyed something, I wonder if that's related?"
