Load Lightshot and then select your picture by clicking the PRT SC button on your keyboard and dragging the mouse to select the part of the screen you want to copy .  Once you have it on a tab, right click and "Open image in new Tab". That will give you a URL that the forum will accept. Then you "Insert Image".

I think, therefore I game.

You sure that works? 

Pretty certain the owners of Lightshot don't allow third party linking to their websites (which is not that difficult to code btw), for the obvious reason that it bypasses their adds (that pay for the hosting and the bandwidth you are using).

If you want to link a picture in the forums you need some webhosting that will allow you to link. Personally, I have my own website and webspace which is how I link my screenshots directly. There may be some services that will allow direct linking but pretty sure Lightshot isn't one of them.

Everyone has a right to an opinion. No one has a right to their opinion being respected by other if it can't be backed up with rational and logic explanation

I don't know about the legalities of that, but you don't link directly to Lightshot. You could upload pictures to Dropbox I guess, but that seems a bit more effort than most would want to go to.
