I completely agree with this, but it's the ability to embed in a post without attaching images that is the benefit of something like imgur. Of course it could always go like photobucket and every forum will be broken until we figure out the next thing. But that's just the beauty of the internet I guess. I'm never using a web service as my primary image storage again.IMHO - If you have the capability of storing images on a hard drive, that's the way to go. No messing around with image services that may change how they function in the future and 'Hang You Out To Dry'
