Not that it matters much with something like Yahoo, but posting inline images to a BBS like this, images that are hosted on a server you do not own, is considered by many to be bandwidth theft.

When I find people stealing my bandwidth from my server, I generally replace the image in question with gay porn, which may lead to some embarrassment on their part.

Just sayin'.

This is true. And it's why whenever I post images I do so from my own server, which is a lame Celeron 333 but does a good job at serving up half the avatars on this site. The bandwidth demands aren't all that great.

A couple months ago when I raised the issue to bandwidth theft in a thread where people were posting pictures hosted on other servers, you came down squarely in the camp of people saying it was perfectly acceptable. Just saying...

True enough, I just said I wanted to know.... I get 30gigs of transfer a month so I'm not too worried about running our of transfer.

For those that don't have server space, photoisland.com provides free image hosting. Use the 'Link for auction' on the bottom left hand side of a detail-view for an image in a gallery to get the URL, which is good for three months per image, I believe.
