To make a long story short, I have problems with my motor functions, and it causes my hands to jerk around even when I'm sitting idly. I usually have my hand resting on the mouse so I can scroll through chat messages. This new update causes the chat messages to be highlighted rapidly by my moving cursor, and the new reactions and other message-related hotbar on the righthand side constantly popping up and shifting is so hard on my eyes. I feel like the chat is spazzing out just because of my difficulties controlling my hands, and it's almost impossible to read without my eyes following the blocked highlighting and that hotbar filled with my most-used emojis.
I am sincerely pleading with Discord staff to remove this feature, or at least make it a toggle option, because I have no way to revert back to a previous update to get rid of this, and reading is now borderline impossible. I already suffer from chronic migraines; this is only going to exacerbate that if i have to be constantly looking at flashing message blocks in the chat.
