Ok guys you got me. I am not sure what the difference is, but Joe, Richard, Pappa and others have commented on the difference.

I have a friend that several years ago hot-linked to a completely innocent picture.

A few minutes later that picture turned into the most X-rated picture that DogBytes had ever seen. He sent him a quick PM to the person, else he'd have been banned for an eternity for that one!

Hotlinking is frowned upon by many websites forever, because it steals their bandwidth while giving them no gain. I hotlinked to one picture and it morphed into this one!



It was so cute that I decided to steal the hotlinked substitute picture!

If you had seen the picture that that picture morphed into, you'd know that they meant for someone to be extremely embarrassed by the pic.

It was EXTREMELY graphic. I don't know how they do it, but it's effective. Fortunately he caught it before a mod caught it. He'd have a tough time explaining himself out of it!

Not from photobucket or wherever... ;)


Photobucket is completely safe. That's what they want you to post from.

The point is that a link to an image on a 3rd party website, can become unusable if the owner of the site removes the picture, you have no control over that. In Photobucket you control your own content that you link to. The problem is that it is twice as much work to copy it to Photobucket first, so people get lazy and link to the original.
