I think that is not a very kdeish way :)
I could do tons of things yes, including the rm -Rf ~/.thumbnails to the 
crontab, or make the folder read-only, or maybe I could just turn the 
whole thumbnail thing off...

But, I'd rather do some "compatible" solution. The closest thing which 
I've found is checking the "Thumbnails Cache" in the Security & 
Privacy / Privacy tab in the control center. But this obligate me to do 
a manually cleaning with KControl.
