Random title right? Okay. Here's the story.
When I first started this blog, I noticed (via a function that tells you the location of people that visit, ...sneaky :P) that a lot of the vistors were from Poland. Seemed kind of weird, but knowing that this site is 100% public, I really didn't think too much about it.
Eventually, I started getting multiple friend requests on Facebook from people from Poland and getting comments on blog posts that were not in English. A little weirder...
It turns out that a girl from Poland had been stealing my photos, and essentially my life, and pretending to be me over on a polish site called photoblog.com. I found her site, and sure enough, she had pictures from all my trips, portraits of people I have taken, videos, and numerous other things along with being able to go into full detail on the exact places they were taken and people's names. (All of which she read here or on flickr.) I was also getting so many visitors from Poland here, because she was also claiming that this was her blog and posting links to it on her site.
It didn't really bother me too much at first, it's a risk that you take whenever you post pictures on the internet without a watermark, until I started getting numerous comments and facebook messages about how I was the one lying and that I was the one stealing pictures from her.
She has since deleted her site, but I still get messages about it. So, instead of responding to every one saying the exact same thing, I thought I'd post this here.
1. I am not from Poland. I've never been to Poland (Although, I would love to :) In fact, I've never even been to Europe.
2. I do not, and have never, posted on photoblog.com
3. I do not speak Polish.
4. I really do appreciate my little mini-Polish fan base though. haha :)
