Some people need to grow up!

Ok, guys and girls….it’s rant time!

I just received a rather irritating message from a reader whose post I happened to reblog here a couple of days ago.

That reader accused me of stealing her photos and passing them off as my own!

I know all my readers who regularly drop into my blog know that I do reblog several times a week, and I do that with material which I think is interesting and may be of interest to my all my other readers. Let’s face it, that’s what blogging is all about, isn’t it? We “like” or reblog material, and in doing that it may get passed on to thousands of other bloggers too, resulting in awareness of material that you would normally not even think about.

And every reblog I do, I always, always always have a link showing where it came from. Even with photos that don’t belong to me…I always have a little link showing where it came from. Surely after all that, nobody should insist that I am guilty of stealing? I have never been so irritated in my life upon reading that comment, but I suppose that’s life….anytime down the road, we will encounter such people!

Rant over!

ME & MY PASSION! ok, you probably looked at the length of this "about me" page and thought, god, what's wrong with this guy!....does he have to start telling us his life story or something!!? well, youve come here now anyways, so why not hear what im like as a person, eh? ive been using film cameras for well over 30 first one being the family yashicamat twin lens! over the years, ive both bought sold and collected film cameras...too many to tell the truth! in fact, ive been buying and selling cameras well before the internet came on the scene, so anything you purchase from me is backed by my self-styled moneyback promise.....if you dont like what youve bought, send it back within 14 days and you get all your money arguments!! WHERE I STAND ON THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION! yes, i do use digital as well, but only as a ready-reckoner...i try and take most shots with my simple 2megapixel digicam....if the shot looks good, i pull out my film camera and shoot! i most defintely do not believe in digital manipulation of photographs....that in my eyes is not photography...its cheating! WHERE I USED TO LIVE, WHERE I AM NOW & WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO DO! i used to live in Ontario, Canada, but moved back to the UK a little while ago (its a long story..!)...but now i'm living in the one place i always wanted to be...Vancouver, BC..the next best thing to paradise on earth! as i work as a freelance writer as well as other things, i often find hat my work takes me to europe for short spells, so i get to travel a lot...not a blessing, as i just hate long flights! im a qualified Quality Assurance guy (you know...ISO 9000, auditing, documentation etc) ....99% of my skill-set is transferable so i can handle any admin or documentation-related roles....see you in BC! otherwise, i specialise in ISO 9000 auditing and documentation. my dream? to have my own thriving camera shop in Vancouver BC, whilst living in the mountains somewhere.....the best of both worlds!

    I just wrote a post about mysteries, one is I had to go back almost 6 months and delete a person who started out rather benign in his/her comments, but eventually the day before I left on a trip called me a liar in a thinly veiled ‘story’ of a coworker. I was so upset I had a really hard time letting it go! The comments had some confrontations in them. Good luck, hope you have a better day!

    • i totally sympathise with you!
      this person had no logical reason to back her accusations up, but yet, they still feel they need to offload their hatred onto some unfortunate person.
      i immediately decided to “unfollow” that person, and also apologised if she’d been upset at y reblogging her post…somehow i dont think it will placate people like that!
      thanks for dropping in again!
