Default Post Width Issues...

Ok so this has been bothering me for some time now. I run my laptop at 1600x1200 res and even with my browser maximized, sometimes I still have to side scroll a thread because of stupid url'* that are 10 miles long or pictures that aren't formatted "for the web".

Could we please try to institute some kind of formatting of pictures and urls?

I always use the url tag with
[ url = http :// ] DESCRIPTION GOES HERE [ / url ]

And I always resize my photos down to below 640x480 to make them much easier for others to view (plus to keep my web server from getting overloaded). I always link to the full res shots using:

[ url = http :// ] [ img ] http :// [ / img ] [ / url ]

One example of this is HERE. The link at the bottom is FREAKIN' long as h3ll!
Am I alone in this annoyance? Is there anything that we could do?
