In this Meta question, I posted a image, and a link, I've enclosed the markdown text:
I was reading [a recent Meta question about users not showing up on the Area 51 Stack Exchange 'users' page] (the one that has to do with the Beta. Like the Gaming Beta User's page). I was [paging through the beta users], and after the 8th or so page, was given the following error message: It appears that since you guys use user flair, and the flair is rate limited, anyone who tries to view more than a few pages of users on the Beta page will be IP Banned for a specific amount of time.

You can reproduce this issue by creating an image with a link:
And then inserting a link before that image. Every link you insert before that overwrites the image url, resulting in a lost image.
