WARNING: careful when hotlinking from some sites...

You know when you direct link from Tripod or some other sites, they replace the image with a "tripod" image? Annoying, isn't it?

(!!) Well, it's nothing compared to what some sites do; some will go an extra step and replace the image with some very, very offensive, disgusting and distrubing images!! :annoyed: :annoyed:

Even sites that do not have that type of content, can sometimes do that!! Their aim? To make users stop from hotlinking from their sites and punish them in a very embarrassing manner. Trust me,
you don't want to post an image, and without your knowledge have the server replaced it with something utterly awful... only to later discover what happend and have people ask you why you posted something so horrific and disturbing!!!

i.e.
NEVER, NEVER EVER DIRECT LINK FROM Somethingawful.com, or you *WILL* REGRET IT!

Do not use public upload systems like http://stuart.unseelie.org/
as people can probably change your images / or the webmaster might get angry that you're abusing his bandwidth and decide to embarrass you by replacing the image themself.
