I noticed that I’ve been having a lot of hits to one of my older entries lately, and that these hits have all been coming from a particular messageboard. As I am unable to sign up on this messageboard, for some reason or another, I can’t see whether or not they’re simply linking to the image there or actually displaying it, using my bandwidth. Either way, I suppose it’s cool that I’m getting traffic… except that my stats also show that they read my page of internet funnies, and promptly leave again.
Thing is, I can’t afford to host several instances of this 1MB animated gif *and* my podcast. Well, maybe I can, but it’s the principle of the thing. So, I renamed the image I’m sure they’re probably linking to. I’ve done this before, repeatedly, as someone on a completely separate poker forum insists on direct linking this image as his avatar.
What’s so mean about this?
I then uploaded goatse under the old filename.
Ain’t I a stinker?
