Sue, that doesn't steal any bandwidth. Those who want to share their images, such as our feral care banners on Save Samoa, prefer you do it that way so it doesn't eat up any of our paid-for bandwidth.

I don't have time to go through and read all the pages here, I wish I did, but bottom line question for me.....this is what I do (which isn't often) If I want to copy a pic from a website...I right click on the pic and then click on "save picture as..." and then save it to my documents to post at a later time as an attachment here. ( I did this when coping the pic of Ambers Christening gown from e-bay that I was buying a year ago.) Is this okay????

Guess it comes down to one is a little white lie and the other is just a lie!
Well, I posted a picture from ebay the other night for a cat tree I was buying. So I guess I am a Whovenile delinquent! (That's from the Grinch... don't wanna steal anything from him!)

OK, so now I guess I'm being a little paranoid, but I don't want to use up anyone's bandwidth...If you get a smilie from a site which states "To use the smilie, right-click on the smilie, copy the URL and post it in your message", they know you are using up some of their bandwidth, correct? And you don't have to download it?

nope! i had right click block on them and people where still taking them. I try to make sure that all my pics are watermarked (although I have been slacking on that latly) but even those are kinda easy to remove. It's really sad that people can't respect other peoples things. I don't mind people taking things and linking back to me, but just take them really bugs me.

Right click blocking is only semi-effective. Many users would know how to bypass that. I don't like the right-click script as I often just want to open a link in a new window using the right click and it stops you from doing that as well.
|Originally posted by Anne Also, some webmasters put insulting messages on the right click pop-up when all I wanted was to open a window in a new page...|
