I just got done killing hotlinking from the site due to a comic aggregator that wouldn’t remove us from their list. Since they were stealing our bandwidth to display our work, I figured I was entitled.
I have no problem with anyone reading us, but I do want them coming here to do it. While it does deprive us of some ad revenue if you use an aggregator, the main concern is that you are seeing the images out of context. You don’t have immediate access to the archives and cast listings, and you don’t have access to the tags and categories set up so that you can easily keep track of individual cast members in this tale.
