I turned off image uploads in the past once, but since I own a photo sharing site I was accused of doing it because I'm a capitalist pig out to line my pockets at the expense of the little people.

Oh well, better to be an evil man who can keep his free forum up.
For those who have been used to using the image attachments, http://www.imgur.com/ (I have no affiliation) is an easy place to upload pics if you just need one for a post here and there.
