You have a pretty big website, and while I am not a regular reader, I've enjoyed reading articles posted there from time to time. There's one particular list you've posted though which has me a bit angry, so I think it's time that I said something about it.
Now this image is fully in the public domain. I don't claim any copyright on it, and would never presume as such. But where my issue lies isn't that you grabbed the image from my site, no. It's that rather than upload the image to your own server, you (a large website) decided to merely hotlink it from my site.
That's right, Cracked.com, which has its own CDN, steals every image on that article from another source.
Most are photo hosting services or blogspot, so those people wouldn't notice anything -- but my site is a personal one, and I pay for that bandwidth myself. When a writer is too lazy to right click, save-as, and reupload an image like that... well, it's just sort of dickish.
So, since I know people still read said article, I will now offer this ultimatum (that I assume will never be read -- but hey, I can pretend to be important for a minute): If you do not stop stealing my bandwidth by the end of the month, I will replace said image with something... less pleasant to look at.
I don't know what I'm going to do, probably nothing pornographic... probably... but something you, the staff of Cracked.com, won't want displayed on one of your webpages for certain.
