Image Theft

I just noticed that some idiot has decided to steal bandwidth by linking to an image on my website. I went hunting around looking for a suitable replacement when I came across an entry by Jeremy Zawodny
Unfortunately the site has decreased the size of the image to 24×24 which means you don’t get the full effect of the image. I did consider using the infamous goatse image but decided against it.
I used mod_rewrite to change the image by adding a couple more rules to my .htaccess file.
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^http://(www\.)agneasy\.splinder\.com.*$
RewriteRule ^.*pics/badger_logo\.png$ /pics/babyshit\.jpg [L]
After a while I will just block the IP and have done with it.
