The problem with all these general scripting is that it will also affect for example some
search engines that links directly to your images and movies.
Google image search is one of my largest hijackers from the image search.
There is also the singingfish.com which is a search engine for movies.
Both do it by also opening or linking to your webpage.
Also there are a lot of people who just use one of my thumbnails for the link which I do
allow and sometimes have encouriged as I know that a good thumbnail increases the
traffic from them. But all o these are giving me traffic which is what it is about.
