I don't know that it ever was different, you've always had to link to an external site AFAIK. I've used Google to look at cached pages of topics made by you, and your avatar image (Linux detergent) was a link to an external site: http://img220.imageshack.us/img220/6622/linuxh.jpg. That appears to be dead, perhaps you had set the image to expire after a certain amount of time?
