I've always been under the impression that 1 reputation new users on SE sites can only link to images, not post them as direct display rendered images when you open the post.
Well, it seems that I was wrong. On this spam post, a spammer managed to post a complete image right away, and it was an offensive nsfw one.
How come SE allows such a blatant avenue for abuse? Wouldn't allowing linking to images be enough for new 1 rep users?
I haven't seen anything like this in the past between over 2000 network wide cast spam flags, it's only started happening in the past couple of weeks. Why did this change?
