    I am a big pussycat really. I hand out full infractions for quoting embedded images and videos at about a 1:20 ratio to the warnings I give.

    Thank you. I am sorry, I will try to be a little less careless in the future.
    For a man is a slave to whatever has mastered him. Keep an open mind, just dont let your brains fall out.

    Erm, just wondering what the point of this rule is when members can stick a bunch of images in their signature that then show for every post they make?

    (Yeah, I get that re-posting a huge image is a pain in everyone's butt, but ...)
    Measure once, cut twice. Practice makes perfect.

    The forum limits the size of pics in the signature, and the total length.

    Looking at what is contained within square brackets [ something ] doesn't constitute IT wizardry.

    However a more interesting note is since ADSL/VDSL and even Fibre are increasingly the norm and the days of painful Dialup are mostly confined to the history books - is there grounds for a relaxation on this policy (to the Mods) or are you going to stick with 'Quoted images are effing annoying to scroll through when trying to read a thread, so no'

    and that old 'it takes up server space' - horse shit!
    They're neither hosted nor so much as cached on your (overseas not even in new zealand, boo! Hiss!) servers...

    Pah.
    But naw. Keep em ban cos they're annoying.

    There are still plenty of areas of NZ with substandard service. There are places that EUBA services are not available, BUBA only. That's of course, still populated etc, and dialup elsewhere.

    Then again, for rural, there are more and more wireless services... heartening to see...

    It's not IT whizzardry. Just delete the
    Code:
    [IMG]
    and
    Code:
    [/IMG]
    that you read in the quoted text, and everything in between.

    It would be even more fantastic if people used similar care about the misuse of apostrophes.

    Oh my goodness...

    Next you will want people to to use the following correctly:
    whether and weather, we're and where, fare, fear and fair, son and sun, know and no, new and knew, and so on...

    plus, no doubt, to drive on the left side of the road and not use an apostrophe with plurals...
