Hi Peter

Just to be clear..

I am of course aware of other forums: some do permit images; some do not. This may reflect both the significance of the use of images to the purpose of the forum and the strength of the available counter measures. The Forum has no pre-moderation and no check on the creation of new subscribers. There are already attacks on the Forum in terms of using the "insert link" facility to direct people to inappropriate sites. We usually catch these quickly but they illustrate that our current very open approach is probably at the limit of the risk that we think it wise to accept.

I suggested two options that are fairly convenient and cover almost all of the possible needs for images. Apart from this latest set of discussions I have not seen any significant demand for in post visibility of images.

However I said I am reviewing the position including discussing the security aspects with our hosting provider. I will post further when I have completed those assessments.
