It looks like a pretty good website on maltese as pets, but they are using Shoni's picture without my knowledge or permission. Marj's Lady too.:angry:
She might have joined to get access to pics but she doesn't appear to be a Maltese owner... just a writer with lots of pet sites, so she can have lots of Google ads. Her phone number is on the Whois info so you may want to call her to have her remove your pic.Since she is using pictures from SM, I wondered if she is a member here?:mellow:
Makes me wonder if what she wrote is original or also "stolen".They used Lady's picture without my permission, too. I contacted her last night and told her to take it down. She emailed me back and asked for permission. I told her to take it down again, but it is still up.
Several of the pictures on the website look familiar to me, especially the little birthday Malt on the Age page page. Anyone recognize her?
Everyone should check to see if their picture was stolen, too.

On the left side of the webpage, click on "Halos and Points"Good point, Sher.
I can't seem to see the pictures, do you have to click all of the links in order to see every one? I'm a nerd, thus, I don't click on links unless I know for sure that it's safe.
Yep, I was going to start adding my name to Aolani's photos - just haven't gotten arount to it yet.I'm not sure how effective this would be if people really don't care if they steal someone's pictures but you can check it out and decide if it's something you want to look into. There is quite a bit of free watermarking for online photos if you're interested.
How to Watermark Your Photos
I did a search took 24 seconds for several pages to appear of SM babies. Stacy/Marina recent win with Emma, Michelle's caricature of Maltese, Brit's Cosy, Lucy, the icon for the Shelter Contest, Kat's camel's, even the age banner time lines. There must be a common thread other then the SM forum for these to appear through Google Images because there are other sites there as well. It's kind of scary...Oh my word!!!:exploding::exploding: Go to Google Images and type in the box "Maltese dogs on spoiled maltese forum" ALL of our fluffs are on there! :angry::angry::angry:
Yes, this is a public forum, but I was thinking more in terms of photobucket, MySpace, or Facebook when I mentioned a common thread. I went through 15 pages of Google Image, never did I see a photo of my Star, but I don't belong to any of the aforementioned social sites, and I have never used photobucket. Just think there is another common thread other then SM.I think it's really creepy actually but it is a public forum. So anybody and everybody has access to your photos and whatever you write.
I got an email from Alisa this morning and told her again to take Lady's picture down. It's still up! Grrrr! :smmadder:
I just sent another emial demanding she take the picture down NOW!
