    Have searched the forum, faqs and tos, but can’t seem to find any mention of this. I would like to link one of my own pictures (smallish, less than 50K or even the thumbnail image) from my wp.com blog to a forum I occasionally post, in but want to know if this is prohibited in the WP TOS.

    (I know this is considered bad Netiquette, but I don’t really want to post the pic on my flickr photostream and I don’t have any other web space available online.)

    All constructive discussion welcome.

    It’s called hotlinking if you want the technical term for it. :)

    Thanks guys! (Yes, drmike, I did know that and all about htaccess, too. Once upon a time I had my own domainDOTcom but gave it over for WordPressDOTcom.) :)
