There's nothing stronger than a 404, is there? I wish I had a way to tell msnbot-media that
#1 I do not have a file called /templates/blahblah/images/iranian-barcode.png * nor yet any of the half-dozen similarly named image files you requested in the same 24-hour period.
#2 I have never had a file called /templates/blahblah/images/iranian-barcode.png et cetera.
#3 I never will have a file called /templates/blahblah/ et cetera.
#4 You have clearly fallen prey to some variety of attempted hotlinking or robotic hiccup, and I want nothing to do with it.
I really hope they don't make a habit of this. Once bing/msn has taken it into its head that a particular file exists-- or used to exist-- or will come into existence at some point prior to the heat-death of the universe-- no power on earth will make them stop asking for it.

* Key element of urlpath obfuscated. Search for "blahblah" strongly suggests a specific domain, apparently Iranian, which I do not propose to visit. Not even with Lynx. Cursory further investigation via free lookup turns up the names "OVH" (registrar) and "Hetzner" (server). You can't make this stuff up.
