LJ has made it more difficult to get anything done about hotlinkers and bandwidth thieves. :(

Conclusions

* We have removed the Bandwidth Theft policy; we feel that it is not LiveJournal's role to intervene in such situations, and that the issue should be resolved through controls on the site which the content resides.

A while back I've said that it will be easier to steal icons. So I've added the following to the profile of this community.

New policies = Easier to steal

I'm so going to throw out the rules :D

Plus, any last post I make will be kept open until another post is made.

There is of course, no way to reply to them.

I have reported 1_steal_icons , 0_i_t_y_t_0 , and t_w_o to LJ Abuse, but with the new policy, I am not sure that it will do any good. :( I have banned these users via my Admin Console, and when I have the time, will ban all their friends and members. )

Just to let you know, not all their "friends" are mutual friends. Like, they've added random users who've pretty much told them to remove them on the posts of their journals. And they haven't since they don't look at the comments or get email notifications. One of them watches my community and I'm probably gonna have to make it members only from now on since she refuses to defriend it or my other journal. :/
