    Does tumblr allow hotlinking your own images? I notice that if you upload a image and delete the post your image is still alive and not deleted.

    Hotlinking is just similar to stealing images and this is not allowed. Some people are getting away by doing this but not everyone is as lucky. You will be penalized once Tumblr will find out. Some people consider it as borrowing but if the original owner is unaware of it, it's stealing.

    but does tumblr ever permanently delete the images? cause like even if you delete your photo post the image will still be there. It's even still there if your account is suspended

    No, tumblr doesn't permanently delete the posted image, apparently the image will stay on tumbler.

    Well that's nice tumblr will make a great image host since it doesn't matter whether your account is terminated or not the image will stay there Lol
