Title: Be Wary of Google
Post by: HobbitFancier04 on February 23, 2004, 03:43:01 pm

No, it`s about really sadistic pics! I posted a very nice Lij-pic and it turned into another one right after posting! :-\

Very strange! ???

The reason why pictures are turning into gross images is because people are hot-linking.

Girls, don't direct link to images unless you've uploaded them yourself. It uses up others' bandwidth and if they're pissed off enough about it, they will upload nasty images to replace the ones you stole off the site.

Thank you. *steps off soapbox*

I've had this happen on Google, Yahoo, & Live Journal. I'll click a link and it'll start to bring up what I click, but then a "FREE PORN!" site will come up in its place.
'Tis a shame.

makes sense - I did wonder for a moment if it wasn't about bandwidth

but that's just a nasty punishing way! I've seen cases where the image gets replaced by rude disclaimers, but never porn - weird.

I'm assuming the questionable picture that caused this thread was probably the Goatse picture. It's a disturbing picture of... never mind. It's just acid-burning-your-eyes horrible. It's the one ***MOON*** accidentally posted. So listen to your mod and find your own servers, or we could be subjected to that again. ::shudder::

Post by: curious bout efans on February 28, 2004, 03:39:49 am

Erm...but then I would never post pictures, if I didn't ever hotlink to others' websites. People do it to mine. Eh...I haven't been punished for it yet.

This is interesting because I saw that thread in the Fun Stuff section about using Google to find funny pictures. You honestly think we should upload all those images to our own site? I dunno...I wouldn't want to play that way. I don't mind using my own site if it's for something permanent but for a fun game...no.

Just throwing that out there.

Title: Re:Be Wary of Google
Post by: medu on February 28, 2004, 10:18:35 am

It was nasty when i experienced that for the first time.
A huge pic where was this woman.. x( and then the pics started to appear to my screen, new windows started to come and there were like 100 of them and all said 'free hard porn..' or something. I just pushed the restart button, cos they didnt go away o_o
But that didnt happen when i went to a hotlink, i was just surfing in the Calling fansites, and somehow it just happened. Maybe there was a pop-up or something? But it wasnt kewl.

I'm talking about personal sites, though many professional sites don't allow image hot-linking either (ImageStation, Geocities etc).

If I were paying for my own webspace, I would be pissed off if I had to pay fees because others were hot-linking to my images...and I know I'm not alone because we've got many 'Report to Moderator' requests that we edit a member's post to take out the image they hot-linked, and various members here have complained about this practice as well.

It's just bad manners, period. If something is *that* important to post...you can upload it on your own account.

Title: Re:Be Wary of Google
Post by: Christina87 on March 01, 2004, 11:49:11 am

Hey,
Yeah I know what you all mean. don't direct link pictures because if you do people might have this code on their site which makes the picture you hotlinked turn out to be a different picture when you post it somewhere else. it's hard to explain...guess all I can say is that I understand. Lol. So it's anyway better than you save the picture to your own computer and then upload it to your own server where you know it will be able to show up correctly. That way we'll all be happy!!

ok, well how do you not hotlink?

Title: Re:Be Wary of Google
Post by: HerMajesty on March 06, 2004, 11:49:35 pm

You save the images to your hard-drive, upload them onto your webspace, and link from there.

If the site is reputable, like MSN, then that's not a problem. But privatized sites or teen-owned sites often have 'creative' methods of dealing with hot-linking.

Post by: Orlando Otaku on April 01, 2004, 12:20:40 pm

i pretty much done alot of Hotlinking, though that was before my inexperience with computers when i was young bittie lad like most girls here, lol

what some have done is that they stop people from downloading their images from their sites, they blocked the code enabling the user to do that, though there simple tricks to get around that

just like IP Banning, even though a mod can banned you with your IP address, you can get around that and create a new account and still posts,

it is an on going battle with hackers

I think that repulsive pictures are too excessive a reaction. Somebody I know dealt with it by putting a mildly peeved but still polite JPG message on her site in place of the picture.

I don't do much hotlinking in general, so I haven't run afoul of that...

Google is just bad when it comes to porn. I know the inventors of Google are trying to have access to everything to be on the internet, but maybe some things shouldn't be accessed. Funny, reminds me of the time when Jay Leno held up a picture of the Google search engine, and then changed it to have 'a more truthful title' and it was called something like Porn search. ;D

I remember once I was searching "Bambi" in the image search engine and I found a grotesque picture of this woman in a tank top with...implants beyond normal comprehension. Gugh...

Some sites are fully hotlinked what comes to images, but some of pic posting people still allow others to save them. ::) (I'm confused...)

I have usually used Photobucket's "upload from url" option for those. That way you can save the images to your web and they look fully normal.

It's just like when someone take something innocent and beautiful, like Frodo and Sam's special friendship/bond, and soil it w/ slash stories, it's as awful as a bad pic to me. I've read slash when my friend and I were entering poetry contests/writing challenges, but I would never read one of these two, to me it's like Elijah and Frodo are sacred, and those pics make me uncomfortable, so I am VERY careful now thx to all of u.
