Don't Hotlink!

boltTohea is a text-based roleplaying game centered around the popular show and game, Pokémon. I only know this because a Tohea forum has been hotlinking to one of my images for some time now. Hotlinking is not very nice, as I absorb the bandwidth cost every time someone loads a page in that damn forum, and judging by the stats that's a whole lotta hits.

Instead of just blocking the hotlink, I decided to have a little fun with the RPG crowd. I replaced the picture of a lightning bolt with an image that reads "Toronto Mike sez Don't Hotlink!"

Here's a screen cap of their forum as it looks right now. Click the image to see it full sized.

Fucking hilarious.

Do me a favour, cut of you balls and shove them up your nose.

Oh, my. O.o;;

I had no idea that Tohea was doing that. I'm not going to leave because of it, but I think I may try making some nice *.gifs that they can use instead, since I don't approve of art theft at all, and I'm pretty sure permission was not asked, nor credit given, considering. >_>

*scurries off*

Toronto Mike

Tohea peeps, that lightning bolt was hosted on my server. All you had to do was copy it down, upload it to your server and link to it there.
