I mean, that's true, but 4MB isn't a lot of space for proper pictures
of anything anyways. They'll be fuzzy, or it'll be one picture. imgur
allows hundreds of huge images, on the other hand. On the other hand
we'll also be having a bunch of people uploading potato images that
could be 100 kB but are 4 MB because they weren't reduced in size. And
then the smallest detail you can make out is 50x50 px. It doesn't
matter on imgur, it matters in an inbox. Though I will admit that the
list doesn't have very high frequency.
