I don't like the attitude being expressed here (Bean).
Excuse me? What "attitude"?
The harsh attitude that requires you to respond to postings in a manner that would normally escalate the situation.
You'll have to quote exactly what I posted in this thread that you considered to be a "harsh attitude" because I haven't a clue as to what I wrote that was harsh.
If something is posted on the internet, it's pretty much up for grabs, unless it's been copyrighted and noted as being copyrighted, e.g., a photo.
Perhaps you were raised differently, but common sense and decency proscribes that when someone asks another to not use an image they created, you don't do it. Archer absolutely behaved properly in this instance and I thank him for doing so. You did not need to step in and get argumentative. You were escalating the situation which was not necessary, especially in the feedback section.
Perhaps you were raised differently, but common sense and decency and maturity proscribes that when someone has a problem with someone, they should deal with that person one on one, rather than making a public spectacle of their problem and/or running to someone else to get them to solve their problems.
You'll have to quote what you consider to be a case of my "escalating the situation" because, seriously, I had no intention of doing so.
I am, however, being sarcastic here (i.e., parroting what you wrote) because I'm finding this whole thing kinda weird in a funny kinda way.
I was asking if the picture in question was copyrighted, and commented that if it isn't, then it's not a question of someone having stolen it if they choose to use it. I did so in an effort to help the person understand, in the event they were unaware of the facts regarding using images found on the internet.
If you did mean well, your delivery was ineffective and came across as inflammatory.
was my delivery "ineffective" and "inflammatory"...I didn't curse, I was polite, and I didn't use caps, etc. What I wrote was perfectly rational and sane.
I prefer El Capitan or To-to-kon, but whatever floats your boat. If you don't like the way things are run here, you are free to not visit and complain about it elsewhere.
Well, El Capitan, the "way things are run here" is confusing, since I haven't a clue as to what I wrote that prompted you to accuse me of having an "attitude," being inflammatory, and guilty of trying to escalate something.
I do understand, however, your request that no one but admin/mods reply to people in the Feedback section, since the purpose of a feedback forum is for people to complain, ask questions, make requests, etc. to admin/mods.
