For Xenforo 1.5.6+ config.php option $config['untrustedHttpClient'] if it's enabled and configured to run through a http/https proxy, would be nice to have Xenforo feature to auto disable IMG bbcode embedding of 3rd party images if Xenforo can't detect if the http/https proxy defined in $config['untrustedHttpClient'] is down or unable to be connected to. Maybe fallback to just non-embedded url link to 3rd party image if http/https proxy is down ?

I guess the usage case for such a feature would be when or if the http/https proxy has troubles and goes down.

Or does Xenforo already do this or just leaks the backend Xenforo install's real IP if the http/https proxy defined in $config['untrustedHttpClient'] is down or unable to be connected to ?
