...am I the only one who can't stand it?

I used to enjoy reading through the threads and seeing all the photos at proper sizes. Now they are resized so small I can't really see them properly. It's particularly annoying on journals where there maybe lots of photos. In the POTM, APOTM, and TOTM threads it is also a disadvantage.

Thoughts? Please do point out whatever advantage the current set-up provides as I cannot see it. (it's too small)
