Yeah, I see two kind of leechers: the phpbb and similar forums. Sometimes
they leech an image, and after some time it stops. I have less problems
with that. The avatar usage is less funny. Moreover, sometimes you can't
even check what they do with your image since you have to be registered.

Indeed. I had the same problem with boards2go. I warned, then I removed the
image, but kept getting 404's in my error log. Then I decided to violate
their TOS. I linked to a hot chick :-D (I am a too nice person to redirect
to a goatse :-D ). It took a few days and then the image was gone.
What I really didn't like was the attidude of the board hoster: contact the
admin of the board. Yeah, right, how? It's their site, hence their problem.
