Recently I've been noticing some use of the spoiler tag to hide images. Images that are well beyond the 800x600 dimension restriction and well above the 100kb limit (I am going by G&T image rule restrictions, as it's where I frequent here). I would understand that this is done to keep images from breaking a page's horizontal size, but the fact of the matter is that these images still have to load. Which puts a burden on people with not-so-great internet connections.
I can understand if a thread is labeled [NSF56k], because generally that means the first post in the thread is image heavy and it's a nice courtesy (and typically the images that splatter those posts are within the size restrictions).
The example that prompted this post is here: click.
My request is that the G&T mods note publicly that this doesn't sidestep the image restrictions. It's not a rampant issue, just something that comes up now and then that makes me (and possibly anyone else on dialup) go .
