'Alternate Text' is annoying.

A message being rejected for a lack of 'alternate text' on an inline image is an unnecessary annoyance. If I want to have this, I can do it manually. Please make a preference option to change the default to 'Don't Use...'. At bare minimum, add a simple 'did you forget' dialog box like when the word 'attach' is detected (which is an amazing feature, thank you for that!) so this issue can be dismissed in a single click.

You mean like https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1743591 ?

Similar, but that's talking about adding a border to an inline image (which makes NO sense to force AltText on) - I'm just dropping an inline image... but fundamentally it's the same user experience problem - at least that's how I'm experiencing it.
