Since the above comment was made on 2013-01-14, the announcement, "New feature: uploading images in the forums!" was made March 4, 2013 in https://support.mozilla.org/forums/contributors/709030 

The decision was made in the related bug 694941 to use the image gallery for contributor forum images, though other options were considered.   

Is a way to automatically purge images that aren't being used in either contributor forum posts or KB articles being investigated?

These open bugs are related to manual removal:
Bug 613337 - Media gallery gives no warning when deleting an image in use
Bug 909824 - Allow Forum Mods to remove images from the Image Gallery  
Bug 935068 - Add feature: Articles that link to this image

Hi Alice, thanks for bringing this up. Currently this seems like a low priority issue. Would be nice to have for sure.
