Images Won't Embed Via Link

Recently, as in today, a half an hour ago at least, I attempted to post two images. I went about this like I normally would, saving the images to a draft and then copying the image link. I checked the preview and it was perfectly normal, the images showed up, but then when I actually posted the post, the images weren't there. I immediately checked to see if I had gotten the formatting wrong but no, it was entirely correct. So to sum it up, I can upload images just fine but I cannot embed images through the use of image links.

I am also having this issue. Two pages of mine are affected differently, despite both using images similarly (they are both bots that use the same CSS formatting): - affected - unaffected

There was one extra unaffected post in @kimbot, but I tried re-editing it and that made it stop working. Looking at the source code in these pages, the img tag seems to be stripped entirely on display - but the img tags are still present in the "edit post" page even after posting. 

The images are still present in "preview".

An example draft is here - the code snippet in code tags is repeated immediately afterwards in the post, but the img tag does not survive in the rendered post. (it does appear in "preview")

I've also verified that it affects all forms of image embedding:
* Simple links
* <IMG> tags
* ![]() embeds

I appear to be having this issue as well. Looking back through my profile, this appears to be acting both a post I tried to compose just now:

And also this much older post that used to function but now is also failing to load the source image:

However, other older posts compose using this general approach appears to be working:

Happening to me. All posts in except the oldest should be full of gifs - instead it's a random mix where some posts have them and some don't.

have verified this is happening to me as well, for <img> tags, and ![]() embeds, though iframely previews of an image url seem to work okay. happens for both on-site and offsite images; i've seen this both with my own posts where images are hosted on Cohost, as well as on @ditherpod which links images from the NASA APOD website.
