    OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Is it necessary to include a pic of some sort with every post; this has gotten to the point that it's pretty much has gotten out of hand.

    For those slapping pics within all their post, can ya please chill with that. Not everyone is running a T1 connection. No one should have to sit through all the pics loading just to read what they come here for in the first place.

    Some of you are starting to treat this forum like a moblog! I can understand if the pic is relevant to helping someone solve a problem; but come on now...thats not even what is taking place.

    And some of you, in your haste to hurry up and include a pic, dont even have the deceitceny to make it small. As far as board etiquette goes, the correct size for a message board/forum is 320x240.

    Now, I'm sure some of you will take this personal and if you do, well, you're an adult (presumably), you'll be alright!

    All I'm asking is that those who are guilty of this please take into consideration that many of the members (not me) are on dialup!
    Also, please consider that many of the members are viewing Treo|C from there TREOSSSSSSSSS!

    Insertion, some pics are actually relevant to a post; especially if it helps solve an issue. The option provided (IMO) is not beneficial.
    Its the same as saying that someone has to loose out so someone else can flood the forums with pictures.

    Ok, so what you're saying is in order to know its relevance, linking clicking is in effect. Spend 1 month posting strictly from your Treo and come back and say how easy it was to get answers; or how much time spent clicking links?!?

    Blazer isn't a full blown browser. It's slow to begin with. If I were going to be using it exclusively, I wouldn't have images displayed. Your signature is an example, of wasted bandwidth (not saying you should remove it, just as an example.)

    Is clicking a link that much harder than downloading an attached image?

    You can usually tell when a pic is relevant.
    "Has anyone seen this error message?" "What is this symbol?", or the next great "Treo Killer" pic...if I'm online at 56k, aside from being miserable, I'd do everything on my end to speed up the process, including no images, probably remove avatars as well. But that's just me...

    While I think Insertion has a point, the point of the original post is important in that a lot of people have gotten too happy lately in regards to trying to post funny images.

    On another board I frequent, there is a specific section for silly posts. They call it crawling chaos I think.
