I've read many journals in the past several hours that speak of a site called fastimg.net which apparently makes your pictures from dA available for download, even those which are set as non-downloadable. It turns out that this is an automated script search engine which just scours the internet for images, kinda like Google's Image Search. And as for your pictures which you have marked as non-downloadable, here's a simple experiment you can do: mark your picture as non-downloadable, and then log out of dA. Now go to your pic you made as non-downloadable, then right click and choose "Save As" - it's that easy for someone to download your picture. My point here is this: if you are so worried that your picture might appear on other pages, there's a simple solution: don't post it, because in that very moment you post your picture it is automatically detected by search engines, like Google or Yahoo.
