I am sure they read this very often, however they honestly don't care. I think we should start rumors about them how they steal photographs and not show true images of their own properties yet rely on others. I have a lot of contacts here that wouldnt be a problem...

but isnt that the childish way of doing things? I dont know.. i think we should just WATERMARK all of our images hwoever we want to, and let them steal it.

I used to.

but if someone writes up a press release style statement, that could easily be formatted into an article, im sure a paper would publish it, its in there nature to look for stories, and the easier it is, often the better.

however there could be a problem if the companies advertise in the paper, as they are unlikely to alienate a source of income.

but if we hit all the papers and magzines im sure one of them wont have a clash of interests.

Anyone good at disrupting website traffic?

i think phoning them up, demanding to speak to a manager, thenaccusing them of using stolen property would be the best approach.

then demand compensation....
