It seems like the blink tag post
has spurred a resurgence of their use here. What's up with that?

From searching, the last discussion on them was back in 2007.
As far as I can tell, the blink doesn't seem essential to the comments
. It is further irritating because I know several browsers no longer support it, so I'm not even sure the mods are seeing them. It is very distracting (and annoying) to try to read around those posts while stuff is blinking at me.
Any chance we could either eliminate the tag or be more clear/strict about when it's appropriate to use?
