I often find that I am in need of a diagram to explain my problems and such, and so are many others. Instead of painstakingly opening paint, saving as a png, going to image shack, uploading, signing in, and copy-pasting the link into a forum post, why not just have an online 'paint' application, so that users can easily make diagrams to portray their troubles, mock-up some sprites, or make a unique smiley? I feel it would benefit many.

Oh, I don't know. Any screenshots I ever posted were in-game ones, maybe which had been edited. I VERY rarely see straight MS paint style diagrams. I use to hang about the Q&A topics a lot.
How many have you seen? As one who often needs it, how many have you made, in all honestly?

I love your creative writing. Go to paint, Rmb+click on it's icon, click on properties, and set it's shortcut to P. Now you can open it in a flash with Ctrl + Alt+ P
Takes the P out of Painstaking-ness.
(I am using xp, but it's been like this since 98, I think, I doubt Vista/7 are different)
I do wish there was a way of making .png the default selection. Is there a paint .ini setting or something somewhere, which I can mess around with? Anyone know?!?

All of which you'd have to do in with your web paint app solution, correct?
So you should really have written.
Instead of opening paint, and saving as .png, how about a web app?
