Images blocked to PtP?

Is it a bug or a conscious decision that Imgur has blocked images to a certain website known as PtP? I am by no means objecting this, it is, after all, your site, your bandwidth etc, you call the shots. I just found it to be odd of you, of all people, to block images to a website that is, shall we say, of questionable content, even though, I'm positive, 90% of Redditors use similar sites every day.

It clearly states in Imgur's Terms of Service: "Hotlinking to file-sharing, torrent, and pornographic sites is prohibited." We're usually very lenient on this sort of thing, but it turned out that passthepopcorn was also using an incredible amount of bandwidth and resources. (The ToS also states: "keep in mind that this is a free service, so please be nice to our servers.")

Since it was violating the ToS, and it wasn't even nice about it, we decided to block it. I hope you understand.
