Dear users.

My site is not your private image hosting server. Please do not remote link to my images. Thank you.

Yours in crankiness,
Alden (Do I have to put "please do not remote link" in every piece of alt text?)

Block 'em with .htaccess?

I've already done that. The problem is that the image stays in their browser cache, so they don't realise that the remote linking hasn't worked, and I get spammed with many hits (all of which fail, of course).

Plus, blocking them isn't foolproof, because some browsers don't send a referrer...
