GIFs linking back to my site = SEO benefit?

That's a long time back, but it does show that such 'oversights' can happen. On the other hand of course, it would be relatively easy to foresee search engines down-valuing sites that 'hotlink' in order to minimise potentially poor quality affiliate sites.
What that all means is that I wouldn't rely (or want) this happening much. It is a little too unpredictable from one month to another whether it could help you, or whether it could actually hurt you in a big way.

In some ways these are votes for your domain and in other ways it is simply mooching BW.

Most cases, if you offer a copy & paste people will copy & paste. Only some will remove these notices.
