Dear Terry Harris…

… you could have just asked! As you didn’t, I’m glad it cost you money and I hope you realise that exact pic is on at least 10 other websites.
You are obviously very bored to bother with me, a one-man-band, not for profit, and information only. Why you spent money on that, when some big sites with millions of visitors who make money are also using your pic, is beyond me. I can only assume you are a sad, lonely man.
For those wondering, I received a DMCA Takedown, via WordPress.
I was given no opportunity to defend myself. A form was filled in by “some bloke” saying that I had “stolen” his photo and WordPress just took down the entire article. No questions, no due diligence, no “innocent until proven guilty”, just gone.
They say it is a legal process, in which case where is my legal right to defend myself? It’s a disgrace.
Saying that, the article was written in April so was not even current or being read, making the whole thing even more pointless and even more of a waste of money!
There are some really sad, really bored people in this world and to me, they are surplus to requirements. Why do we want people in this world that exist solely to irritate others? Their only reason for getting up in the morning is to cause problems and they bring no benefit to society.
Mr Terry Harris – you are one of these people.
