Hotlinking is wrong!

Hotlinking is wrong!

I believe that people shouldn't link images from a website, to any post in the forums, as everytime an image is viewed it increases the bandwidth (transfer of images, etc to the website users computers), which website owners have pay for when it goes over a certain amount. I am an owner of many websites, and would hate it if someone did that to any of my websites. So please consider this when post images in the future.

You certainly have a point cturner, and I'm guilty as well.. There are websites set up so that right clicking is disabled?? Might be worth it for you if it's a problem

It would be very boring if we could never post images & any I ever post have Direct Link copying enabled usually via a specific site set up to do it like Photo Bucket etc.

Isn't that why sites like Photobucket exist? I mean not their only reason but I thought it was one of the things they are designed for.
