Re: Users Hotlinking images – nasty replacements showing up
OK. After doing more reading I agree that hotlinking is bad practice.
However, we get 2500 posts a day on the forum, moderating all this is an impossible task. We have a team of about 10, but lots of images do get through.
I was hoping there would a technical fix.
We are now considering a blacklist – which would be impossibly long, or a whitelist – which wouldn’t cover all acceptable places, especially personal web hosting accounts.
