Hi ya, rocknbill:
Basically what you're doing is stealing their image to display on your site, and using their bandwidth to do it.
You are unfortunately giving me too much credit :)
What you had suspected me of doing (hotlinking to someone else's image) would probably have taken some amount of aptitude - something I seem to be bereft of lately. :(
I was actually hotlinking to ONE OF MY OWN PHOTOS that was already in my coppermine gallery on the same server - just in a different directory.
Since I wanted to save on disk space (by not having to upload the image twice in to two different locations), I thought I could just hotlink to one of my own images.
