I have two sites consistently hotlinking to me: xanga.com and myspace.com. If you post pictures or graphics, you are undoubtedly having this problem with these two sites, too. I noticed one of them a while back when I had a bit of a spike in bandwidth use and discovered that xanga actually promotes the practice. Iím not really close to my bandwidth limit but I just donít care for this. The users at both sites appear to be mostly teenagers and internet novices. They do this because theyíve been told its ok or they think everything on the internet is theirs for the taking. Iíve tried a few things to prevent it and my host is still trying a few things but our efforts have so far been futile. We're still working on it so things may get wonky around here with permission errors from time to time.
