Getting back at those myspace loser kids

If there’s one thing those of us who have been creating websites for a long time know – it’s that inlining images is not to be tolerated. It’s considered very rude to waste someone else’s bandwidth – especially since they are probably paying per mb. What’s inlining you say? It’s displaying an image on your website when that image is on another server. You’re supposed to download the image to your server and then put it up. That way you only waste your own bandwidth. When the owner of the blog ascii.textfiles.com found out that someone had decided to use an image of his inlined in myspace templates, he had to get back at them. So he replaced the image with a very, very disgusting one. That’ll teach those stupid tweens not to inline images!
