Thumbs up Lets mess with picture pirates!

So today I was scrolling through the vast array of reporting tools that are now available to me on the sites new server (thank you again Charles!!) and I start seeing some interesting traffic activity, like sites that are hot-linking pictures back here to the site consuming our bandwidth.

Case in point:
D-90 Source article submitted by Mike Hammond: http://www.defendersource.com/mod/side_tank/index.html
vs
Stolen article (I think because I cant read the page) but defiantly stolen pictures from here. They didn't even bother to upload them as their own, they are currently hot-linked back to the article here on the this site to display on their page: http://www.eldefender.com/TALLER/tabid/56/Default.aspx

Now I can see some thing about the D-90 Source but thats about all I understand there.. did they even give credit to Mike Hammond?

Anyway, there is a hot linking protection feature here on the server but before I turn it on, I was kind of digging the idea of some minor evil picture swaps to punish the thieves.

hm mm

I've showed you my pics I use for this. I won't link them here as I don't want to scar people's retinas like I did yours.

I don't do what you described, but in theory after giving it some thought, don't we all kind of do this when we see something relevant? We just give a quick link "hit" to it? I don't know. If someone was intentionally trying to save bandwidth by doing this, then that is uncool. If they are just passing on some knowledge or info, then that is kind of what I like about the net--it is easy to do. I am more of a free-range kind of guy, as long as the motivation is genuine and innocent.

If it is not genuine or innocent, then lets fry the bastard. I recently was sent some very naked, very hairy shots of "things" that I don't even want to descibe more...excuse me....ohhh....that I could send you if need be.

I think there is a difference between the two scenarios, though...

you guys are way too nice, on the other forums that i'm a member of, they would certainly post the most raunchy thing possible...

there can be some serious carnage when the pictures are hotlinked for ebay auctions, and myspace, it's great!

I think that "nice" is kind of what sets us apart. I have been to Pirate, Discoweb, ect. and they are traditionally assholes. Now, I know a lot of you here go there, and so do I from time to time (and some of what goes on there technically is excellent) what I like about HERE is the absence of B.S.. If it is up to be, I would keep it that way. Usually here, when you straighten someone out, they either leave or shape up. I dig that. I have been prone to drunken posts, and I usually end up apologizing. This is D-90/civil. Kind of makes me feel like river dancing.... (Boondock for those that don't know, smiles for those that do)

You're right, you reminded me why I hang out here. Have the nukes launched?

haha.. no, nothing has been done yet. Most likely I will just turn on the anti-hotlinking widget but I havent tested what that does yet.

C'mon. Just replace one of those pictures with the d-90 thong from Cafe press for a little while.... It would be a hoot.

I turned on the anti-hotlinking widget on my site and it broke a lot of stuff- make a good backup. I went ahead and left hotlinking on and just watch the reports. Every once in a while I bulk change all the image file names.

Just change all the images to a image with the URL of d-90.com. Should be easy to do. I do it all the time on my site with .htaccess and ReWrite rules.

That sounds like a reasoned response.
