An ordinary URL is not defined explicitly, but it would appear to require an image-type suffix (eg.
.jpg .png .gif etc.)
http://imgur.com is a decent, easy-to-use host that does not require an account (unlike Flickr), but their images are not inlined by default
Unless you grab the special URL
To top it all off, this matches something in BannedRegexps and can’t be posted in the main page Surprisingly (worringly?), comments don’t get the same ban-hammer.

It depends on the actual regular expression that triggered the banning. Assuming you triggered the regexp that bans ending a page with a URL, for example, the explanation is simple: as a comment, your “signature” is added and thus your URL can never be “at the end” of the page text? Then again, bugs are always a possibility. :)

That must have been it. I edited this page to add one of the URLs at the end, and couldn’t preview it.
However, I do note that prior to my edits, UploadingImages also ended with a URL.
