The embed images feature in and of itself is damn awesome. However, in quotes, all it really does is add to the scrolling distance.

I propose either:
1. A third option for whether or not to embed, "Yes, except in quoted text".
2. Instead of displaying the image full-size, display a thumbnail in quotes (perhaps with the click-to-display-full-size thingy that some sites have).

For option 2, I realise that grabbing the image and resizing it down is probably overkill, but perhaps just applying CSS / HTML width / height attributes so it doesn't take up as much space on the page is a good idea?

Maybe there's other ways to deal with it - the main point here is, full-size image embeds in quotes get annoying sometimes, especially if the post is quoted multiple times in a row.

Yes, this opens the option of someone using quote tags to force someone to click a link to see an image, but realistically, I don't think there's that much harm that can be done with it (especially if this is merely an option rather than the sole behaviour).

PS: I'm far too lazy to maintain this as a petition, so I'm simply posting it as a "here's a suggestion" thing. But if anyone else wants to make it into a petition, go ahead.

I'd be onboard with this

And yes, thumbnail-size in quotes would be ideal. But converting it to a link would be fine too. Anything but showing the full-sized images again.
