    Lost Art costs a lot of money to
    host. It has no advertising and
    we pay for it out of own our pocket.

    Feel free to link to our site, but
    do NOT link directly to images on our
    server.

    Thank you.

    I'd chime right in usually, but I think this is exactly where it belongs. He wants people to stop posting direct links to his images, so he's posting where the images are. If you put it in the third rail half the people he's trying to reach would probably not even see it. It would be lost in a sea of bullshit....

    bandwith is expensive. high server loads = more $ being spent.

    IG i suggest you install a anti-linking script that checks for HTTP referalls and if they are differen't then that of your local site, it doesnt display the image... that would solve your problems immediately, as people would have to visit the site .. to see the flic..or open a new browser window with no http info...

    geocities, angelfire, and other big free providers all have these sort of scripts installed..
