PM Attachments in Instructables? Answered

Whats the skinny on no attachment /pictures in private messages. 
Is it a major revamp to include this feature.
Every place else in Instructables allows them, so i don't get it.

It's a way to cut down bandwidth usage. Why waste a couple of K's on a photo that only one person will see?
