I have no worries with images being taken off my site and reused as a lot 
of them are not mine anyway
BUT hotlinking, using my bandwidth to display images on by server elsewhere 
is not OK.. some may say
why not block it with .htaccess.... WHY? I like a bit of fun....

So Some loser in Holland, who can't work out how to do "save as"  was using 
my image of
the post "Cloud Busting" Kate Bush on his website loading it off my server....

http://www.fatblokeracing.org/gifs/25_nov_kate_original.gif was what it 
used to show
however now his site will display......
until he moves his tags to the latest version of course..... :)
