Imgur Links ARE DANGEROUS ⚠

Hey all,
I wanted to bring up the use of imgur links on the forums. A lot of people use these sometimes casually or to get around the newcomer image ban but that’s not why I’m bringing it up. If you didn’t know, imgur links can be a serious security hazard!

Imgur is an amazing website to use with friends but that should be the extent of it. Imgur has the unique ability to add formatting code into your posts, however, this allows people that know a thing or two about a thing or two to grab personal info from you when you go to the link, like your IP address. If you like anonymity on the internet I suggest avoiding these links unless from a trusted source.

I hope to see a rule against these links as to protect unsuspecting bystanders. Most people think of this as another website like youtube or reddit.
