It's possible that a lot of people don't understand when they are hotlinking. I know I don't. When I post my photos that are on Flickr, I go to the image on Flickr, right-click the image, click "Properties," then copy the entire address (URL), and paste it in an IMG code here, like so:
Had I used  instead of (), and not deleted the colon after "http," an actual image would have appeared in that spot. Anyway, is that what is meant by hotlinking?
This is home now - Citi Field, capacity 41,800 - and every seat in this ballpark seemingly filled, some standees as well, anticipating a piece of history as delivered by Mike Pelfrey, the 25-year-old from Wichita, Kansas.

Gerut off to a .214 start with no homers and one RBI. - Howie Rose calls the very first pitch thrown at Citi Field, April 13, 2009
