Prevent "certain" external images? (ie. danasoft sigs)

Post by waxxie »

I've been having a problem with people using danasoft.com signature images, which show your IP.
Other users think the person is showing sensitive info and report the post basically freaking out.

I would like to somehow disable those kinds of services. I don;t mind doing it manually

is there an HTACCESS solution?

thanks in advance

Three things I can think of.

1. Add danasoft to the word censor so it breaks any links made with it.
2. Make a rule you can't use those in sigs and enforce it.
3. Educate the people complaining that it's nothing to worry about.

Just put danasoft in the top box and something random in the replacement box. 123 will do.

That will then change all links for it to www.123.com which then won't work.
They'll just get the word image in their sig.

Try it on your own profile and see.
