Just FYI, for those who don't read the rules, I'll post those concerning this forum here.

4.4) hotlinking is forbidden, WAB has a generous attachment policy, up to 5 pictures totaling 1MB for all attachments is allowed per post, please save the pictures to your computer, then upload them if you wish to use them in a post

Hotlinking definition: Hotlinking is a term for a specific form of bandwidth theft, when someone, rather than storing an image or file in their server space, sets the HTML to refer to a site they don't own, therefore setting the server usage to someone else's account, possibly on the other side of the world. This is clearly a serious problem, especially if you're paying for server space.
