The latest crap

Here's a story typical of the shit I have to deal with every day. Early last year, this guy sent me pictures of a girl with nipple stretchers — he claimed to be the photographer. Anyway, he got — and used — his membership, but then a little while later I got a message from someone at the same email address as him, freaking out.

They told me that the photos were sent without permission and that if I wanted to avoid getting sued I'd have to remove them immediately. They were of course removed, and I assumed that the story was done with.

Well, a few days ago I got another email from the guy telling me some porn site had stolen the pictures, gave me the address, and asked me what I was going to do about it. I told him there wasn't really anything that I could do about it, but recommended that he stop them legally if it concerned him (and I gave him their whois information).

Then I get a series of angrier and angrier messages blaming me, and now threatening me with a lawsuit if I don't stop them. I tried to explain to the guy that because he'd illegally sent me photos, and I had no legal claim to the photos (and was no longer even using them on the site), I didn't have any legal authority to go after this company, but he didn't seem to get it.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
