    I don't know what to make of this, but if you go to this website:

    General Gallery - Heavyshare Forum

    It basically has a mirror of the posts on this site. Is this some type of intentional marketing/search engine ranking scheme?

    I've seen something like this before, I was doing some looking around for manufacturering dates for my yashica when I stumbled across A post of mine taken directly from this forum on another site.

    I dunno what it's about though.

    not seen it for forums but I know it happens with blogs - often done with an automated search engine that just mirrors your blog contents.
    Never really looked into it any further but it does seem to be strange -

    Lehmann does good work. Maybe you should post his photos here as yours?

    Definitely should be reported. The site owner should be called out.

    In the meantime, why not join? Invade them and let them know they're busted and the site reported.

    Quick, someone post a picture of a middle finger and caption it: "steal this!" :lol:

    The site might get turned off pretty quickly. ;)

    Uh-oh.
    I'm "Obama" over there. But my pics don't get any comments there, either. Not here, not there. Pfffff!
