How do I stop animated gif avatars?

They are so annoying, but I can't find a setting to turn them off for people.
Would have expected it to be a permission.
(I don't want to alter server settings which allow people to upload animated gifs into post etc.).

yup - if you select GD as your image processor instead of ImageMagick then the animations should stop... :)

But that also stops attachments. I linked Stuart to another thread where someone had the same question and there was a hack to achieve it.

It would stop the thumbnail animation, yes. But it wouldn't touch the full size unless it's above your dimension limit and animated attachments are unlikely to be.
