Default On Image/smiley-only posts (a good thing!)

We're relaxing the rule against posts which are nothing but images/images+smileys. They were originally disallowed ages ago due to bandwidth concerns and issues with post padding (waaaay back when your post count actually meant something).

So, while we do appreciate people sending in reports about this, it's no longer strictly necessary. If we end up with a bunch of posts in a row that are just a smiley each then, yeah, we'll ask y'all to knock that off

That being said, we would appreciate SOME effort on them. If it's gonna be smileys only, at least try and tell a little story with them or something. Get creative. Use your words, dude.

PS for images -- It's generally best to link to imgur or the like (it was designed to handle hotlinked images) instead of attachments, and please remember to use WIMG instead of IMG tags if it's wider or taller than 600px. This will auto-generate a clickable thumbnail. Thanks!
