Fine with me, Grizzly. I don't hold grudges against members unless they get personal :)

So on reflection then, it's probably best to scrap this rule for the various reasons already discussed.

Most serious/commercial sites will keep their content indefinitely and as already stated, if they want to prohibit hotlinking then they can do so quite easily.

...Perhaps any site which permits images to be hotlinked is actually OK with it?

I don't really know how site owners consider this issue these days considering hosting costs and bandwidth, etc. aren't as big an issue as they used to be.
If whateversite.com/attachments/dldkdkdkd.jpg gets hot linked, then that raises the awareness of that forum. At least in general how most admins feel about it (to a point).
