Banning a KCK leecher

Postby Cyburbia » Sun Aug 08, 2004 9:57 pm

Unfortunately, I had to ban a Cyburbia member, apparently from KCK, who was posting images from his Cyburbia Gallery album on other bulletin board threads, but not in the Cyburbia Forums. The user never participated in the bulletin board ... he just dumped images into his album, and hotlinked away. He got very hostile and confrontational when we told him about the policy (and served up a replacement image instead; he should be lucky it wasn't porn), so we banned him on the spot. His uploaded images, including many very nice shots of KCMO, were deleted. Hopefully, he kept backups on his computer.

Please ... if you're posting images that are hotlinked from other Web-based photo gallery sites (Cyburbia Gallery, Skyscraper Page, etc), find out about the hotlinking policy before you complete those IMG tags. We pay a lot for bandwidth, and consider it a public service when we let others share it by hotlinking. Don't blatantly steal it, though.

Now I know what everyone is thinking. First of all, I have never heard of Cyburbia.com, and second of all, I own my own webserver, so I have no reason to leech off someone elses site, so basically it wasn't me. By the way, do you still have links to the user's images, I would like to see them.

Still wondering what this is doing here? We don't know everybody on the internet that lives/represents KC?

I half-way thought it was you DMW, but then I thought it probably wasn't after I thought about it for a second.
