The web interface is merely a front end for a newsgroup, and many people
access it either via the newsgroup directly or via the associated mailing
list. So, all that's supported is plain text. Even if the web interface
supported something like bbcode, it would just show up as markup to everyone

Similarly, because editing doesn't work with a newsgroup or mailing list,
editing is not supported in the web interface either. When you post a
message here, it's sent via the newsgroup and mailing list. So, once the
message has been sent, it's too late to edit it. Anyone signed up to the
newsgroup or mailing list will already have your original message, and
there's no way for the web interface to then go and change the message in
everyone's inboxes. You can post a follow-up message to correct something,
but the original message will forever be whatever it was that you originally

If you want to post an image, then post a link to an image.
