Never been a sufferer yet. It's bloggers who can become a real pain

Change your pictures. Have some fun. Make them miserable.

He does indeed. But so does Google... well, not at the moment though. Google
puts us all to shame. Google is your (retarded) friend. *smile*

MSN is the biggest thief. Some much bandwidth devoured and so little given in
return. That's especially true for technical sites, judging by MSN's
clueless audience and userbase.

It's MySPACE, not MyMATERIAL. All your bases are (sic) belong to us.

It's cheaper to run that way. The investors and creators are happier; not
Webmasters in your vicinity.

Put some innocent Flash clip as a trap. When somebody HotLinks it, serve
those teenagers some hardcore viedos that'll make them sob. Flash is more
versatile, but I suppose any GIF could be substituted with an animation, as
well. Redirection might be another trick, but I suspect file extensions will
intercept the effect.
