# Some days
I really regret writing specific numbers in the FAQ. It has just given rise to a cult of people waiting with baited breath to pounce on anybody posting an image 2 or 3 KB over a limit that I just happened to pull out of my ass with no scientific reasoning behind it.

It's about using optimisation to make your images no larger than they need to be, rather than sticking rigidly to a number. If there are any problematically huge pictures on the board, then there are mods who can fix it.

One thing I have learned on b3ta over the years though, is that people like to define a set of board rules so they can pick on new people when they break one of those rules.

I think it probably has to do with compensating for penis size.

i only told my doctor!! ;-)

but you are right with that. and, as relatively new people like me try to blend in, they tend to adapt to this behavior.

i really shouldn't complain myself (6M connection), and i try not to flame pictures which are just over the limit, but sometimes a picture seems to lack just the final 2 minutes of effort to optimise, posted by people who should know better (being a member for a year or so).

not forgetting board nazi's who seem to enjoy their little obnoxious ways. as already commented, more than likely compensating for penis size and / or / lack of friends.
