Nope, it's a case by case basis.  I have the limit set to 128K which is 
more than enough for most anything, but sometimes someone has a picture 
that really would lose too much being shrunk down.  I send a warning 
message out (this is a family/friends private list) before hand and 
then approve it.  Thanks for the pointer though.

flavour of regex?)
