Pictures

Pictures- can we get rid of them? They are really annoying and don't add value to the forum. Thanks

+1 Even if one only wanted financial info from this forum, folks post all kinds of graphs, etc. that would be lost with this change. No thanks.

I'm not sure that after 16 posts one can yet determine what is of value on this forum.

Pictures and other inserts can add valuable detail. And sometimes it's just fun. Bring on the pics!

Which "pictures" are you referring to, specifically? The members icons?

I think we need more pictures. Too much text taxes the mind.

I like pictures, as long as they are not too violent. https://giphy.com/gifs/xTiN0MYiDl0SyBT4pa

Is it a picture an OP posts? Or is it other posters quoting and posting the same picture multiple times? I agree that is aggravating and not helpful when someone is on a slow internet.

Since when is a single bull called a bunch?

Yesterday, a photo was posted of a place called Notrees that actually showed a tree.

See? Words lie. Photos don't (the ones that are not photoshopped, I mean).

Well, so you say.

But, there's always more than one way to look at it.

+1 I like photos. Is the OP still on a 2400 baud modem or something?
