Yes you are. At least you have been arguing against it.

Bikeforums has an "attach files" feature which displays images automatically as thumbnails, which is what Machka was referring to. However, if I just want to display an image using the IMG tag, it doesn't do any kind of thumbnailing.
How is not posting large images bending backwards? I was not serious about changing the size, it was to show you that we shouldn't have to install pluggins, remove objects so that we can read the forum as it was meant to be read.
As far as me
resizing images, you
are the one with the complaint, not me. You want to change the system, to make new rules. Why should I
have to bend of backwards to fix a problem that is not broken for most people?
As you can see, the table is suppose to be 100%, so that it fits within the user's browser. Large images break the table layout.
<table class="tborder" style="border-bottom-width: 0px;" width="100%" align="center" border="0" cellpadding="4" cellspacing="0">
It's not broken for most people? Are you sure of that? Just in this thread it seems like more people are against large images. Do you have different data that I am unaware of?
Answered above, why should I bend over backwards for other people's inconsiderate actions? But if you are having problems with 500 pixel images, maybe you should get a smaller screen.I mean, most images are not very large on here, you must be having a very difficult time seeing what people are posting.
Everyone is going to have a different limit of what they consider to be too large. Those people that are bothered by this can use plugins to resize the images smaller. You can't make images larger as easily... an image that is only 500 pixels wide will look crappy blown up to 1000, but an image that is 1000 will look fine reduced to 500.
I don't remember anyone mentioning bandwidth.
As for bandwith... HTFU, this is 2009. I don't even have problems downloading or viewing large images on my phone.
