First I didn't see any thing suspicus but then I noticed that the background is a picture I made 3 years ago.

Have you sent an E-Mail yet, OlssonE?

Please do that before resorting to other measures.

If the Perp then refuses to co-operate, it's scalpin' time!

Make an .htaccess file in your root web directory and put this in it (replacing slimeland with your site URL):

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^$
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://(www\.)?slimeland.com/ [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://(www\.)?ozoneasylum.com/ [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://(www\.|images\.)?google.[a-z\.]{1,6}/ [NC]
RewriteRule (.*\.(gif|jpg|png))$ http://www.slimeland.com/replacementimage.jpg [R,L]

This allows image linking from ozoneasylum.com and google, and sends everyone else to replacementimage.jpg.

Slime, thanks a bunch. http://sigs.mahjqa.com could really use that kind of protection.

edit; as only /sigs needs that kind of protection, is there a way that the ban is only in effect there, and not for the rest of the site? I've got some graphics (banners etc) that I would like to be freely available to everyone.

You should be able to just put that .htaccess file in your /sigs directory instead of your root directory.

WS: I can't seem to find any link to email... I'll just drop him a note on the comments with my email. (Maybe I'll speak leet tricking him to send me an email... )
reiso: This image.
Slime: Thanks! I'll try contacting him if that doesn't work I'll use that rewrite.
krets: Hmm.... I was thinking of using your gold digging flattering picture... it'll probably send him screaming!

edit: I found he had an yahoo id. I guess it's the same as the email address.
I have sent him an email. Stand by!
