Are you aware that Direct Linking or Hotlinking when unpermitted is also considered as stealing? As a matter of fact, when you hotlink an image, for example, you are stealing other people’s bandwidth on which, that person is paying for. Banwidth doesn’t seem like a big deal to non-site owners but when you own a site, everything revolves around banwidth and banwidth is one heck of a pain in the pocket. (For more detailed info on Direct Linking, visit this page: http://altlab.com/hotlinking.html) And because I have a very kind host that is always patient with me and even treated me a hundred Gb of banwidth already, my site stays up even on the verge of exeeding too much banwidth. *throws roses to Enjay*
A few minutes before I wrote this, I was dropping by my affiliates like I used to. And as I browse to see other affiliates of a certain affiliate, I was wondering why my button was broken. And when I accidentally dragged the broken image at my browser (Mozilla Firefox rules!), I found out that, d so as Themis (Greek goddess of justice) has guided me through, it would be fair enoughthat certain affiliate had been hotlinking from me all along. And the reason why my image was broken is because I am always renaming my buttons to keep them from being hotlinked. An to remove that certain affiliate. You know how site rules go, so no buts.
Due to my devastation, I lot the mood I had to work on our thesis and visit more affiliates and read blogs.
