Anti-leech script which only allowed image use on a few sites

After getting 20 gigs of traffic leached from my personal site I set up an Anti-leech script which only allowed image use on a few sites like metafilter, sa, etc, but to help the RSS users around here you'll need to allow a few more [more inside]

How many subdomains are there?

Sat bored at my compressor, tapped in my Mefi username to Google, as you do, and discovered a host of mefi sub-domains!

bushfilter.metafilter.com,
where.the.fuck.is.metafilter.com,
www.iamnotaddictedto.metafilter.com,
www.betterthanapokeintheeyewithasharpstick.metafilter.com,
a-list.metafilter.com,
cheesemakesmynipplessing.metafilter.com,
wilwheatonseemslikeanokguytome.metafilter.com,
kottke-is-my-hero.metafilter.com,
2nd.birthday.for.metafilter.com,
plushcthulhu.metafilter.com,
mattisaciaagent.metafilter.com,
furbo.metafilter.com,
mobile.metafilter.com.

Now, my [niaive?] questions are:
- How many subdomains are there?
- How do my comments get assigned?
- I only post to Metafilter.com & metatalk.metafilter.com, so how did google find them & rank them?
- Looking at some of those site names, I have to ask: Does quonsar actually have admin rights here now?
