I do. Tubes are pretty inexpensive and give another layer of protection. Of course, I have Lesters. Not a good idea to run these w/o tubes.
To post images. Go to and do what they require. Copy it to clipboard (there's a box.) Paste the link (right click on the mouse, then left click 'Paste'.) Voila you got an image!
