There’s a longstanding tradition among the Web savvy that when someone uses your images on another page without downloading them to their own machine—in effect stealing your bandwidth because you’re still hosting them—you’re supposed to replace the image they thought they wanted with a really tasteless one. You know, to teach them a lesson.
I’ve always dreamed of someone doing this, but in the going on five years I’ve had Web sites no one ever has. Last night, I discovered someone that had. (Unfortunately, they did it on January 21st and I didn’t get around to messing with them until now.)
To Leandra, whoever you might be, I apologize that your friend decided to use an image of my daughter and that I had to replace it. If you don’t like the picture now adorning your comments, I suggest you complain to her.
