I have and several animated GIFS in my diary and I want to go an ADDING and HAVING animated GIFS in it (there are many Diary programs out there that can't do this, yours is (or at least, was) better than them.
Sincerely (hoping I've made a convincing argument for restitution of a good, nay, Great feature), Yours
