Heck, I was laughing with him. Until I saw this thread, I didn't think anyone would seriously ask for such a "feature" and that had to be a troll/joking question about how slow the party already moves.
Thing is, the request isn't new at all. It originates from the Poe early beta days. There was even a poll about it, and it was in favor of those who wanted it.
As for it being a 'featureless feature'... there is also no game-play differences between various models of clothing, hats, weapon models, lore-books, etc. Heck... the humorous big heads toggle adds what to game-play, exactly? Those little things add to enjoyment of the game, though, and not necessarily because they bring any mechanics to the table.
Sadly, many people for whom this does not matter are hostile to the idea, unlike you. :/ Thank you for not being one of them, btw!
