One time out of five that I saw. I think my link code may work against purely automated "snatch-n-grab" set-ups but that site is at least usually doing manual checking of what they snatch. We'd need some kind of forum software change to combat that. (Not a criticism of the administration here, just noting it.)
If people know of some other sites we should look at the results on them as well. I don't want to base our entire strategy on just one example.
Update: I looked up my last pic regurgitation post of Katherine Heigl on that Celebrity123 site. They snipped the "no hotlinking" thumbnail but it appears that they only captured the first part of my post. I'm wondering what would happen if the main (first) post of a thread had no pictures at all or just a "no hotlinking" pic and the real pictures were in a reply....
(And I'd still like to know what other snatch-n-grab sites get.)

Perhaps they'll add your post in installments rather than all at once, similar to how they grabbed mine:
I'd give them a bit more time yet.
No, that's not what I mean. I know they only put 150 links per listing there but they pull all the links from a single post, not a single thread. I put all my Heigl links in six posts in the same thread, but all they've grabbed are links from the first post. I think their software is only grabbing from initial, thread-starting, posts.
Well, as probably none of you have noticed my last several picture posts have had the pictures in the first reply to the thread's initial post. From what I and Boones can tell, that appears to work against Celebrity123.com. Does anyone know of any other link snatching sites so we can see what if any effect it has had against them?
