Ok Guys, if you use htaccess for anything other than hotlink protection I warn you about cPanel's hotlinkg protection.

I had tons of mod_rewrite code in my htaccess, and decided to work on some hotlink protection in cPanel, well it turns out once you disable hotlinking cPanel erases the entire .htaccess file..

Just a warning to backup your htaccess file incase when using cPanel you accidently delete it!!!!!!
