Windows 7: Bandwidth thieves, I don't like them

Bandwidth thieves, I don't like them

I have a nice drive-in movie theatre web site. Lots of people over the past year or so linking to my images via tumblr, or their personal web sites.

One was even pretending the content was his !

My web host has worked with me, but it keeps on happening. I add IP addresses to my .htaccess file. It slows them slightly, but they keep taking my work.

Here is the site, I may take it down if this keeps up.

Or, if you have some means for me to block .ru I would love to learn it.

How would I do that ? I have a number of IP addresses in my htaccess file...

My domain has anti-hotlink running, but it doesn't seem to stop them.

Have you got this:

Code:
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^$
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://(www\.)example.com/.*$ [NC]
RewriteRule \.(gif|jpg|jpeg|bmp|zip|rar|mp3|flv|swf|xml|php|png|css|pdf)$ - [F]
In your .htaccess? (Where example.com is your domain.)

My rewrite rule is different.

Code:
RewriteRule .*\.(jpg|jpeg|gif|png|bmp|txt|zip)$ - [F,NC]

Bandwidth usage has dropped way off. If it stays down, it will be a great improvement.

Thanks !

I would give you rep, but I don't see any way to do that.

Thanks !
