  [Aroid-l] flowersforme123- another photo stealer

The reason is
just as has been stated: to sell a photo taken there would
in fact be making money from their property. Birch Aquarium
has a beautiful exhibit of a living kelp forest, which no
doubt costs them big bucks to maintain; to sell a photo of
it without their permission would be parasitic, just like
the aforementioned paparazzi.

Very interesting- thanks Jason. I'm going to have to look online... that living kelp forest must be something to see!

By the way, ebay gave me an answer- pulled her auctions. They also gave her my name and all my contact information in case she wanted to ask me any questions. I didn't really like that but I guess it comes with the territory.

She isn't really too terribly smart. She started up some more auctions, using the same stolen photos. Again, I complained to ebay (once you fax a form in, they let you email in any other complaints- I guess they have to have your signature on file), we'll see if they remove those..
