I have disabled hotlinking to request.php for downloads. You must use links with download.php?view.xxx now. [Full disclosure: this is to drive ad views] To even things out a bit, I have removed the banner ad at the top of the page. The only banner ad that will be visible will be on the download view pages. I don't really like ads, but sadly, they are necessary. If anyone has issues with this please let me know, and I'll try to work something out with you.
Update: Fixed a slight misconfiguration. I should seriously test things every once in a while. :) Update2: Re-added the banner at the top. I guess it's not really that annoying. It's kind of out of the way anyway.
