  The general idea here is that you want to prevent people from including your images in their
webpages. This is termed "image theft" or "bandwidth theft" simply because they are using
your resources for their website. The following rulesets will prevent that from happening,
based on the HTTP_REFERER header. There are two main ways that you might wish to deal with
this. You can either simply forbid the request, as the first recipe does, or you can redirect
that request to some other resource, such as a "please go away" image, or perhaps something
even less appealing, as you like.
