You don't block the old your-server.de now Hetzner Online AG?
Yeah, I have run into a bunch of leeches like that which is why my hotlink code on one well abused site of mine pops an error for any image request without my domain in the referrer.
There was a very nice lady that hot linked my images for child products onto all her eBay pages. To let her know how much I appreciated her efforts I redirected her hot links to some of the sickest stuff you can imagine.
I think she lost her eBay account.
If you want to have some real fun with them start sending out GIF's with large red flashing letters that say "DON'T BUY HERE!" or something equally as amusing.
Someone hot linked one of my customers background images once and we replaced it with big thick letters "THIEVES" which beautifully tiled across the page on their entire site.
Quite amusing ;)
