My Not-Good-For-Hotlinking or Swiping-the-Funny Out of Context Panel of the Day

Like BeaucoupKevin (who tilts his) or Robby Reed (who provides small, 5x5 pixel thumbnails) I have also decided to from now on post my comic panels and photos in a form that discourages the 3 people that read this blog from snark-concept theft and indiscriminate hotlinking.

Until further notice this is the posting format of pictures included in my rants about unnecessary hyper-sexuality in comics while still secretly getting traffic hits via search results for cheesecake drawings of Super-Heroines. Nor will I provide info about where the image is from, thereby hurting any potential back-issue sales from an intrigued reader.

Here is my funny, yet insightful, commentary featuring Red Sonja in her chainmail bikini.

- From some comic. Look for it yourself if interested.

  1. You better stop implying that that blog exists, or he'll slap you with a cease and desist comment so fast, you're trackball will spin.

  2. Hey, hey, hey. The tilting is primarily because I like the way it looks on my site. Preventing hotlinking is completely secondary, and it still doesn't keep those freakin' MySpace kids off my lawn. One day I'll do that .htaccess stuff that it so very helpful.

  3. All that is a little excesive, don't you think? With all the manipulation, it sure does make it hard to see Red's metal bikini crotch.

    THANK YOU for saying that. Some of us out here in the ether actually do want to buy fun backissues and not being told what issue # it is, or even the COMIC in some cases really kills the fun.

  5. I'm sorry, could somebody please tell me what this is all about?

    Dorian had a post on this (I assume) as well, but I have no idea what you guys are refering to.

    Can someone post some relevant links for me or should I just count myself lucky to not be involved?

  6. I'm not sure what Dorian refered to but I notice I have many, many hits to certain images and not the pages themselves. A sure sign of someone hotlinking an image instead of downloading and hosting it themselves. When I change the address of the image the linking goes away.

    I realize that. It's for the same reason I add a drop-shadow if I'm not being lazy. But I have heard comments over time from people that some image would have been perfect if not for the watermark or tilt (if they were not so lazy they could adjust the angle themselves. Kids!). I've also been stymied in searches for supposedly "royalty free" public images images that have watermarks.

    While I use Blogger hotlinking isn't much of an issue for me as it is to the folks who pay for your own sites and bandwidth. I'd still like to stop it though.
