You can upload images to the TDR server to host. That way, if the original host doesn't allow hotlinking or pulls the pic in the future, the pic in your post will still be there.

Look under "file attachments" on the post creation screen.

They're probably much more

They're probably much more advanced and wealthy than us, hence we are poorer than them, hence they impoverish us. Of course this means war.
