Bandwidth Stealing is superbaduncool, yo.

If you see a pretty picture on the Internet and want to share it with the world, you MUST RIGHT CLICK IT AND SAVE IT TO YOUR OWN COMPUTER, THEN SAVE IT TO SOMETHING LIKE PHOTOBUCKET!

If you put the image directly on your blog/webpage by linking with img src, you are STEALING.

And if you are one of the people who shall remain nameless what did this to me, you're now seeing this:

Way to go with changing the picture. That should teach someone a lesson.

I do have a question for you. Lately I have been wondering about how to find out if someone is stealing my bandwidth. How do you do that?

Well, I found out 'cause a friend was cruising the Internets and saw my wee hooking Peep in a place he wasn't supposed to be.

So I checked my Photobucket Account page and noticed unusual bandwidth activity (like from 2% a month to 45%). I'm not sure how'd you go about doing that from anywhere else. Sorry.

Thanks. At least now I know I can check my photobucket account and see if the bandwidth is really high. Now to find out if there is a way to find out urls.

Thanks again.

That's funny. I have one that I made in Photoshop and it's a bright red background with text that says that the image has been stolen from my site, along with a large pair of handcuffs. The top of the image says, "I'm a thief!" HA!

On a message board I participate on, one woman got so irrate about the thieving, that she made an "I steal bandwidth" background, with those words repeated over and over again. It seems that someone was using one of her images as an entire background in a "My Space" blog.
