Switcheroo: Reasons Not to Direct Link Images

Reason #11: Damn but Fark gets a lot of hits


This single image at Fark has sucked my bandwidth 12,872 times so far.

(C'mon guys. It's simple enough to steal an image & save it to a host where you're paying for space yourself. Seriously.)



Subject: regards: the pickle incident and the hijacked image bandwidth

greetings! being a total farker, I noticed the Reason #11: Damn but Fark gets a lot of hits thread submission that was rejected for the non-total fark readers...

I also noticed that your screen caps for the page appear to be taken not from the original thread at the fark site, but from the version of it I saved to my site, before the loss of LuckyCharms and his pickle post made the thread much less interesting since I intend to leave this page up, for my part, I have removed the directly-linked picture to your site from my saved version to help save your bandwidth. I am sure that the storm surrounding the incident has well passed by now and the page is not being viewed that much, but still, it's the principle of the thing

hope this helps!

Indeed it does, Gentleman John. Gracias.
