XF 1.2 How to disable image/media posting per usergroup?

We have a big problem with spammers getting through all spam prevention measures, proceeding to copy/paste part of a previous post (so it seems semi-legit) and concluding their post with a single-pixel cookie-planting image. How can I disable this capability per usergroup?

There's an option in this addon.

Thanks guys. We'll probably try more aggressive spam prevention first (we're only using StopForumSpam and registration questions currently). The addon seems like a little overkill, but will try if needed :)
Seriously, install FoolBotHoneyPot. It is the best spam prevention method available and it is zero-impact on your users. I run it on one forum currently and it has stopped over 2,700 spam bot registration attempts with not a single one getting through.

FoolBot has stopped over a million spam registration attempts on the four forums I manage. That's just since June 27th. I can't overstate my love for it and its creator.
