Exactly, as was posted in another thread earlier today. The flags are there, and unless somebody can post a pic/screenshot showing the waving flag to be either moving or deleted from the smilie list, we are at a loss. We have yet been able to replicate this.
I'm not sure how you are stating it is not there for you, Glenn, but yet you are posting it.
The only thing I might can venture a guess at, is if you are on a slow internet connection, the gif itself may not be moving due to bandwidth lag, but it is still there.
Always check to see if it is under the "thread hijacked" smilie like below in the screenshot. Even if the flag is not moving, it should still be there.
