    It’s a good start. It’s not good practise to hotlink images from other sites as you have done on one of your posts. Apart from that looks OK, just keep writing.

    Because you are effectively stealing bandwidth from those other sites. Plus there may be copyright issues if you do not have permission to use those images.

  6. It's considered theft as you are eating bandwidth from someone elses web server that you did not pay for.

    For a (verbose) read on the topic see this.

    Many people will just put some hotlink protection that sends the web browser to a really unpleasant image.
