I fired off the following missive:
Hi. I'm Proof, from Proof Positive. You're the one ripping off my images and Tweets without attribution. I am very lenient about people reposting my stuff, so long as they do it with attribution. Otherwise it's just a scummy vile thing to do. Did your mama raise you to be a thief? Please remove any images I have created where you have cravenly cropped off my blog address.
He ripped off one of my first drafts where I left Mary Jo's necklace on. Still, my blog policy is to let anyone republish my stuff, so long as they give attribution. A pretty low bar for most folks, but this guy can't seem to get over it.
You can see my stuff (and probably lots of other people's stuff) here: http://happyacres.tumblr.com/
I thought he'd ripped off my quote from Robert Downey Jr. on November 30th of this year. I like to Tweet my Quotes du jour, but this one was too long, so I edited a hunk out of the middle and Tweeted it. "Happy Acres" apparently took my edit and then edited it some more.
But seriously, how hard is it to give attribution for the stuff you post? In Happy Stealmore's case, it would have been easier for him to post my photo with the address on it than to crop it.
C'mon, now, Happy! Your Mama didn't raise you to be a scumbag, did she? Then stop acting like one.
