Recently an image was posted in a topic that was located on another site's server. This site has a strict no-inlining policy, so they changed the image to something rather profane.

Whenever you inline an image, you are stealing bandwidth from the linked site. Doing this is wrong. You are in effect stealing money from the owner of that website.

If you need to inline an image, it had damn well be hosted on a server you own, or be on Flare Upload. If I ever, ever catch anyone doing this again, you will catch hell.

Linking to an image on another server is OK. Inlining that image into a topic is NOT.

If you have any questions about this policy, please contact me in private. Thank you.
