Pissed

Okay... does anyone know who owns this freaking site http://www.xanga.com/love_elizabethtown and uh... do you guys know they're hotlinking your icons???? And according to my bandwidth, this isn't the only place currently hotlinking to my stuff. They're hotlinking to my current user pic and I am OVER IT. I'm getting approximately 723 hits per *hour*. I'm not a math wiz, but that's a lot of freaking bandwidth! I find it unthinkable that there are that many people looking at my lj--for whatever reason--Orli or not.

I am NOT happy, to say the least.

I can easily pull down all the pics and icons. I asked nicely that people not hotlink, but obviously someone or many someones, are. I'm not pointing fingers--I don't have that kind of information. But I'm betting my server can pull IP addresses if I ask them to.

So here's the "get out of jail free" card. If you know someone who is hotlinking--they have 24 hours to stop. Period. Plain and simple. Then I get nasty with the little button and banners that say "I'm a badwidth thief".

I owe money now. Money I do not have. So that's why I'm posting this. I hate to be a bitch, I only wanted to share. And now it comes back to bite me in the ass. *sigh*

I think I want to cry now.
