Right, but using blobs would ultimately make the database far bigger and slower than it needs to be, and cause more problems than it solves, and place far more of the burden of hosting images than is necessary onto this site. It's also hosting it in the database, and not on your computer as you originally were asking for, and still requires a means to link to it, albeit from within the database itself instead of an external image file.
Right now there's a mechanism for adding images that works, and is consistent with other forums including those that use different forum software. Changing that would require the staff of this site to re-engineer the forum software to do something it hasn't been written to do and would take more time than it's clear they have, especially when there are more urgent matters.
And just to reiterate, you can add images to posts in the forum.
