Google doesn't work on any forum and there is no way I can make sense of this Google URL, no matter how good looking I am or how groovy my personality is. There's no way to get it to kick out a URL with an image file in it. I tried the URL and it didn't even bring back an image that I could download and host.
This URL has 670 characters in it. What sort of flat-billed-cap-vaper who lives-in-momma's-basement-playing-video-games-and-eating-cheese-its millennial Google programmer got sand in his virginny thought that was a friggin' good idea?

My Google spiel:
"The forum software has a built-in protocol for posting pictures, which is [IM G]ww w.yadda.com/pitcher.jpg[/IM G]. If you don't have a URL for the picture that includes the picture filename with suitable image extension (.jpg, .png, .img, etc), then it won't work. Google is not set up to do that, it is set up for storage and mobile device sharing. Plus, many of the Google URLs are hundreds of characters long and the software just tosses its cookies with that.
These long Google URLs are not stable, either. I don't know how long they last, but they are transient.
If you are going to post pictures (which we invite and encourage!) you can either attach them to the post or host them on imgur, smugmug, flickr, any similar image hosting website, or your own website such that you can get that URL with the image filename. All three of the ones I mentioned are popular, free, and easy to use."
We need to get some Russian hackers to take down Google images.
