I expect a large reason that IT takes photographs of text rather than just copying it over is to make it harder to automate the association of their threads with the thread itself here.

That can be done manually by typing out the text and then googling it to find the thread here, but if we wanted to automate this with a bot, it would require applying OCR tech.

If that were possible, I'm wondering if admins could explain how feasible it might be to include a warning at the top of threads linking to whatever IT threads exist which are discussing that thread?

Not very feasible to be honest.
