A lot of people find wide images irritating as they stretch the forum wider than their screens and you have to scroll sideways to see them....
So I went looking for a "hack" to fix this. there are a couple, but this one looks most useful and the code looks fine (its how I would have considered fixing the problem).
The Hack puts a scollbar under the POST that is too wide for the users screen so that only the offending posts have to be scrolled, and the rest are visible as normal: this from the phpbbhacks posting of this hack:
"You've probably seen some topics that have fallen victim to thread stretching. A post in the topic contains some content - perhaps an image, a long line of text, or a code block - that causes the page to widen beyond your browser's viewport. A horizontal scrollbar is added to your screen, and you have to scroll the page to read most of the posts.
It might be useful for the forum users who dont have wide screens, while not punishing those who do.
