This makes me very furious.. For so long on flickr i have wanted people to post pictures of awards saying good job.. This person got many posted on his photo.. oh wait, its not his.. read this letter i had to send out to all the people who posted on "his" photo. ----- You posted a comment on a person's photo that was stolen.. This photo is mine. please take off your comment on this photo posted at the link below http://flickr.com/photos/hikerboy45/2086567934/?addedcomment=1#preview this is my photo.. the original is here.. http://flickr.com/photos/11229703@N08/2069295347/ To prove this is my photo you can tell by a few ways 1. The camera taken.. its settings in more property 2. The size.. mine is bigger, how can i photoshop all of that to be added on? answer: i cant 3. Look at the post times.. when i took it.. they are the same on both, mine was posted first.. Please post your same comment on my photo if possible.. Thank you, Jesse (Unreal Reality2) UPDATES ON MESSAGES BACK From: DrgnMastr "Re: Stolen photo Jesse, Thank you for alerting me to this matter. I will not repost my comment on your photo until such time as clear proof to my satisfaction has been made on the ownership of the photo. You do present compelling evidence though, and as a result the following was sent to hikerboy45: ------------------ Your photo flickr.com/photos/hikerboy45/2086567934/ has been removed by me from Excellence in Avian Photography (EIAP), and my comment has been removed from the photo. I am sorry to have to do this, but I have received an email accusing this photo as being stolen. Until the matter is cleared up sufficiently to my satisfaction, I cannot have EIAP, nor myself, involved in such matters. Once it is clear who the owner of this photograph truly is, I will be glad to reinvite and readmit the original photograph. Thank you for your understanding. -------------------- DM" From: Barb46 "I don't understand why he would do that- he has some very nice shots in his photostream- he has only been a contact of mine for a short time- I will watch more closely and if I see any further problems I will remove him. I just deleted my comment from his posting for now Your post is much better- his was cropped and not as clear. Best regards, Barbara"
