    the trick i found with the whole "add media" kludge is that once you've wrestled the pic into the media folder, open the pic and then just right-click "copy image" it before pasting it directly into your post; that gives you the pic without all the ancillary junk above and below it

    Still needs to be done in a respectful manner.

    Well, it wasn't straightforward as I wasn't doing it from your account! :D

    I had to right-click, copy image address, then open the "Image" icon on the icon bar above the reply box and paste the image address...

    If I were pasting from my Imgur account, I'd just click on the pic in my library and then go to BB Code on the right and click copy:

    That pastes the link with img tags already attached to your clipboard and you just paste the link, as is, into your post!
