Okay, I have some finished cowboys coming, and some other neat stuff, but for now I need to vent just a touch:)
So, in a post from some time ago I used a few photos that I hadn't taken... I just needed a few shots of some specific minis, unpainted. I found one when I did a Google image search and, using the "insert link" thing in blogger, showed the picture. I didn't think much else about it.
I just got a message that, to be honest, seemed very rude. Maybe it is just the "tone deaf" nature of the internet and I am totally mis-reading it, but it went something like "Do you make it a habit of stealing peoples photos and bandwidth? Take my picture down or credit me properly."
Now, that strikes me as rude. Personally, I would have approached it with a "Hey man! Hope you don't mind, but I think you are using one of my photos, and it is actually costing me a bit of bandwidth. Would you mind taking it down?"
Am I reading too much into it? Or was it simply rude?
I did remove the photo... I had no idea it would cost anyone bandwidth, and I suppose I didn't think that a photo of a pair of unpainted miniatures out of a blister was hot property. Funny, too, because I would have been happy to remove it, as well as put up a new post all about the person's blog in attempt to say sorry, if the initial message had been even remotely polite.
Oh well. That's the internet, I suppose!:)
Anyway, coming up next... some finished cowboys, and maybe some photos of my buddy's cowboy set-up, which he is now putting up on the MAIN table, instead of the secondary 6x4!
