    i was wondering why mucho forums dont do it - although i have seen afew where they permit in sig and avs which is annoying.
    when you refer to "secure" i thought the main hesitation towards swf img tags was their weight
    ?

    I really don't know if it's secure or not.
    but have you seen that flash vid where u click a button and it plays some song, and teh screen shakes.
    The sqf triggers a javascript to make that run, which is why i think it's insecure as other things could probably be done as well.

    But i'm not sure, maybe someone can give some more information.

    Having flash would be a really bad idea, you can do almost anything with it such as spawn unlimited amounts of pop ups even in firefox. too much room for abuse.

    That's what I thought, thanks for clearing it up.
