Is it possible to disallow images from being shown in posts or limit them in size? I like the smilies but when someone pastes a huge image related to some code / database specifications which could easily be done in text (or something like PasteBin) i skip the topic completely.

The "Upload attachment" option should be used for images of that nature imo

Perhaps you could write a user script or something?

Not really feasible. There may be a legitimate reason the person is uploading an image - and there's no programmatic way to tell what the purpose of the image is.

User education is probably the only fix.
