Obligatory xkcd comic.

For the life of me, I don’t get why Randall Munroe visibly does not care if he gets hotlinked. Isn’t that, like, rude or something?  I just can’t make myself do it.


Still: this is a very good point.

  1. Half of the fun of reading XKCD is to read the alt text. For that, hotlink doesn’t quit work.

      1. Could also click the image, land on the XKCD site, and *then* read the alt text…
        Not *always* safe for work, of course.

  2. Randall Munroe in on record saying that he doesn’t mind the hotlinking, as long as you are not trying to pass it off as your work. Why do you think he includes the URL so you can?
