An appeal to all photographers

Lately I've noticed more and more posts with links to photos instead of the actual photos.

Since links come and go and pictures get moved and/or deleted, many of the links in the photography forum no longer work, which is a shame since some of them, pointed to rather remarkable photos.

I appeal to all posters to please make an effort to post the images in instead of creating links to where the images are located.

A don't want to have to delete posts that only have links and not attachments and for that reason, once more:
please attach the photos and avoid using links.

Even if people find it necessary to post a link to another site, you should at least attach a copy at RP so when the links are broken the thread will still have a reference image and will not be rendered useless.
