In some cases I feel inlining an image in OP is a better way to faster see a problem instead of having to read, then click on a link, then go back.
New posters don't have the option of inserting images directly so I edit some of these posts when I find them to make the image they link to inlined.
However, lately I cannot do this as I get an "Oops, minimum of six non-space chars needs to be changed" (or something in that line). Inlining an image is often just to prefix the existing link with an ! (one char).
I would like to discuss what is the preferred practice and if that 6 char limit should be removed (seem artificial to me), alternatively if there are other ways to get around (other that re-uploading the image and so forth) or if we should leave links as-is.
