[IMG] bbcodes work as [URL] when image not hosted on server

Many people place IMG bbcodes to external images (hotlinking) not caring that it is possible illegal, stealing traffic and sometimes getting good SERP with content (images) that don't belong to them.

That is why my request is following: when a user places an image in IMG tag and image is not hosted on the server where forum is hosted IMG bbcode automatically turns into URL bbcode.
