I need to vent something here which p***** me off...
There is another website I am part of. It's a photography website (non- aviation) related. You can upload pictures there, rate them, leave comments etc etc.
Today I found a picture of airliners.net which has been amazingly changed. Basically just the titles so that the airline is no longer visible. He changed the titles to his username instead. And called it "My 747, internation commercial".
I commented the picture and wrote: well done, but do you have the permission of the photographer from a.net where I know this picture is from?
Now, an hour later, I see this picture is deleted from this other website and he put me on IGNORE! He claims to be a professional photographer with publishing books and in newspaper and magazines.
Isn't his behaviour unaccaptable? He is NOT obersving any copyrights! And I bet he hates it if somebody is using his pictures and editing them like that.
Here is the original picture:

I informed the photographer of this picture about it, but he cannot look at it anymore because it got deleted from this other website...
What do you think about such behavior?
