[thelist] Hotlinking

Having set the .htaccess "trap" for hotlinking (see earlier thread)
I have just deleted the image that was set to download in place of any
image that was hotlinked.....

Thus I will get an email via my 404 PHP script of the URL the image was
being loaded into... thereby doubling the potential to "enjoy" the bandwidth
theft by tailoring the hotlinked image to as inappropriate a one as possible :)
renaming my local file to display as usual.....

Not very professional but, hey!
