Hotlinking isn’t cool XXXXXXXXXers!

I’ve noticed a lot of people have taken to hotlinking images from my site. It’s not cool, that’s my bandwidth you are using aXXXXXXs! I’ll be taking steps in the next few weeks to make sure that if you hotlink an image from my site, you’ll get a nasty surprise instead of the expected image.

If you want to use an image you see on I want – I got, download it and host it on your own damn server!

UDPATE: After thinking about it this post was a little harsh. So, I’ve edited the language abit. I just wanted to let hotlinkers know that I’m pissed. Hotlinking is NOT COOL and just plain rude. There are many free image hosting services available to everyone on the net. So, please don’t do it.
