Okay, I know I already asked this before, but then I thought I found the answer on my own, so I closed the thread, but right before I closed it, I didn't see that someone replied about it. So now, I'm really confused about Hotlinking.
I've read the guide and stuff, and I'm still a little confused at this part.

Super simply put... Hot Linking to media files = bad... Linking to pages = good ;-)
And so by that, I was assuming that it meant that it was okay to post links to a certain page, for example, a pair of shoes at Target. Then people click on that link and it takes them to the actual page on Target's website. But then somebody said that that was not correct, so I'm kinda confused...
