This week I discovered someone hotlinking my images. When it's a low traffic web page, I don't care. But this guy was using it as his avatar on a forum with quite a bit of traffic which did bother me. I had to implement HotLink Protection. I wrote an article about it:

I had a similar issue several years ago and replaced the original pic* with another, more appropriate pic for a "shmuck." :-)

*the original pic didn't even belong to me, but I at least asked permission to use it first and then uploaded a copy to my web site

You can also replace the file with a redirect to, well, anything ;-)

Dunno why I never thought of that, but now that it's been brought to my attention I'll be sure to use it, soon. :-)
