No, no, no.
1) This would be opening the door for yet another hotlinking site.
2) This would clutter up the message boards. Have a look at other forums allowing images. Gosh. How much more ugly can a forum get?
3) Speed considerations. A fast site that can be even read over a slow link is much better than a site stuffed with (useless?) images.
I would rather have the members express themselves in their own words.
So, no, I would not change this rule.
