    Or if you are linking many images from their site, they may have gotten tired of it and performed a block of your IP at the server level. I know for a while I had an issue with a site hotlinking a lot of my animated smilies on one of my sites... imagine their chagrin when I changed it so all their inbound image requests linked to a totally different image (won't go into what that image was). Broke them of that habit pretty quick.

    I would suspect, as @Tracy Perry says, that they have blacklisted your IP for excessive hotlinking. With the image proxy I wouldn't think leeching bandwidth is a major concern, but it could also be due to lack of attribution.

    hotlinking protection is done via htaccess though? It wouldn't give me a time out error.

    Depends on how they set it.. i can either return a different image, close the connection or several other methods (with nginx). If they have blacklisted your IP at a firewall level you could have issues there also.
