So I noticed you guys put a new anti-hotlinking macro on your images. I noticed because my site where I steal all your articles and content lost all its pictures, YOU BARSTEWARDS.
Bit of a bug with it though - it has a habit of popping up when I click images in articles to enlarge them, like so:
Thought I should point it out. Fixey?

It happens off and on, and it's never consistent between users — some will be able to see the image(s) in question just fine, others will report seeing the anti-hotlinking image. For me, usually shift+F5ing or checking back in a while will take care of the problem, but just so you know Ant is aware of the situation and will hopefully have a solution soon.

That's why Phtobucket/Flickr/ and imgur are here.
I know on other sites Hot linking is ban worthy.
architected to take full advantage of the state of the art processors and infinite power of the cloud.

@shingi: i'm pretty sure Raylax is just joking about stealing our content and hotlinking our images — he runs an anime-based site last i knew. unless he's telling the truth, in which case it's BAN TIME

We've actually had this hot-link protection for a long time, many years in fact. This recent issue has only occurred since we switch to using cloudflare which caches a lot of our resources to save bandwidth. I've now fixed the bug that was causing denied messages to become cached and others see them.
The beauty of the hot-link code is that the website authors often don't know their visitors are seeing the hot-link denied message as they will be seeing a cached (complete) version of the image on their own website since they already viewed it on our site, all visitors to their site will just see the hot-link denied
