In the past, despite being listed as a requirement, it's been possible to use images hosted outside of imgur. This allowed for all sorts of neat dynamic imagery.

I'd like to request that this requirement be relaxed, or at least that the reason for its sudden enforcement be made clear.

The requirement is only enforced on the initial edit (the ads still work, e.g. here); so a work-around I use is to add some image when creating the answer and then edit the answer immediately and remove the image.
