I think the intent is to reserve the forum's storage capacity for images open to viewing by all. Also there is the possibility that such a facility could be exploited for distributing illegal images out of sight. A risk that no site moderator or owner would wish to leave themselves open to.

Swapping emails isn't a terrible hardship, and anything attached in the open area contributes to the general worth of the forum.
