Maybe its just me, but I thought this was a little odd. From a The Verge article that I copy and pasted over to the forum:

It's really down to browser behavior. I'm assuming this is Firefox. If it decides to put them in a data URI (and this is the only case I've seen that happen), then to make the post appear as expected (with the icons appearing), we'd need to upload them. (Previous versions would have silently lost those icons.)

Yep, Firefox. Even if they wouldn't have attached, I would have deleted them anyway (no need when copying an article). I just thought I'd give you guys the heads up.
