I know not everyone is going to like everything you write..And I know people are going to tell you what you should change..But to make a hub insulting me and put my picture on it..Thats wrong. Can I report for the use of my picture?
Well...there is two ways at looking at this scenario.
1. You have implicated yourself in some regard as a public figure by posting your thoughts on a subject. In essence you are fair game perhaps...
But to add to this statement...I am male and was not offended by your article in the least. Quite the contrary actually...thought it was honest, truthful and a great read...no bubbles, no troubles
2. (Most likely the way I would react) I think of this as a community here...in a community you encourage others work and efforts regardless of the topic. Encouragement comes in all shapes and sizes....not always the warm and fuzzy pill that is easy to swallow if you catch my drift.
The hub that was written with your picture as some of retraction comes off as nothing more than attack....perhaps that is not the intention but I honestly cannot see how there can be any sort of misinterpretation.
Sick indeed....that is why there really cannot be any room for misinterpretation....nor is there any calling for that sort of comment. Let's say I disagreed with the hub in my own way...but it would be best for you to take action as well if you have not already.
It really isn't plagerism, I just took a look, he is a male that is shitty with the World. Also he has used your photo and credits you with the words this is the young lady that started all this. I think that it is well written, and has probably resulted in an upsurge of traffic to your Site. People going to make a comparison as I did. So I would not give it a second thought. people are weird sometimes.
I don't think that you can! Once you put your picture on the Internet it's part of the public domain. This is one of the reasons I don't use my name or my picture. You never know what someone with malicious intent will do with that information. When you post your pic and any personal info on a website on the Internet you are surrendering your privacy. This should not be done so casually.
He copyed things..my picture..and everything. Im excited to read any hubs anyone has in response about women! I think It would be fun..but not one just insulting me and even getting personal about me and my boyfriend..thats weird..
No. You are a private citizen, and any unauthorized use of your photo is illegal... Similar to PR employees having to obtain a photo release for use of somebody's photo, or newspaper's using photos of people's dead relatives.
This once happened to me. I'd contact the uh...person (weirdo) and tell him you want that photo down. If he doesn't, report it.
Sigh... Welcome, unfortunately, to the world of semi-cyber stalkers and creeps.... Sometimes it goes with these forums, I've found.
I have no business answering here because I don't know what the rules are about what people can put in Hubs, but I'd think it wouldn't hurt to e.mail HubPages and complain if you want. A Hub with your picture and insults could be seen as "personal attack", I'd think. It's certainly tacky - that's for sure.
Sure...I did the same. Here is the thing about the article...there is no substance. He did not simply disagree with your points...in a point / counter-point environment...which I have no problem with...he COPIED (yes totally copied and did not cite) your work and bashed your writing.
There was not a single intelligent point made...in fact he essentially made himself look worse by creating the mindless drivel which he called writing. Granted we could all probably sit here with at least an hour of material bashing him just from the picture alone..just no reason to immerse yourself into that region of the sewer.
Just to think how many hubs I could have if I simply went from person to person bashing their hubs....it certainly takes a creative genius
I do think when you write hubs on topics like that, you can expect to make people very angry and have them dispute it. And I have no problem with the hub, except that he used your picture, without your consent.
Seriously Bre, if what he says is actually what you think about men, then thats just silly of you. I'm rethinking why I fanned you. The guy is hilarious. Funniest hub I've read in a long while. He's a comedian!
After reading both hubs again. I don't know. I think Bre used stereotypical insults against men. And that's her right. Then the guy one-upped her by answering in a stereotypical manner, with insults against women. He basically answered you point by point.
I didn't get why he needed to use your pic and refer to Michael Jackson. That part has me shaking my head.
But it's late and perhaps I'm not seeing something I should.
Yes! Thank you, Nelle! Your analysis is pretty much right on the nose! The Jackson thing is something I did because I have issues with people who cannot really write getting HIGH scores just because they posted something about Jack-O. Thanks. I have no time to write in here. Glad you got it!
WHY DIDNT YOU EXPLAIN THIS RIGHT AWAY!!! fierycj is running around saying I am really a man and have an alterego (I think he was saying we r the same person) Misha is offended cause I said fools (but thats a word I use a lot my bad)
All the girls are trying to comfort and some of the guys...and it turned into the OC version of hubs! haha
It all smells bad to me. Is it a sock puppet show? Maddie, could you please do us a favor and check both IPs when you are back to work? Nothing personal, but someone with 7 days here claiming they have their own pic as avatar and another more or less noob abusing this pic look very suspicious. I don't think I can have any opinion on the case without at least IP data.
This is me. I have a twitter. I have a Whole name and everything. I went to IMTA LA look on the caryn international website. I also have a facebook. You kno what. fierycj..I have something to say.
It was a joke. Hello! Everyother guy (even my boyfriend) understood that. If you think someone telling a women to get on all fours so so hilarious then please don't be my fan. I stated to many times that I would love a hub about WOMEN!! WOMEN. But not woman..not just me.
Oh, man HOW LOW. I read the hub, I agree it's a personal attack, no way around it. We all definitely have a right to freedom of speech, but the way this person approached it goes way beyond that right. He used your pictures, your words, and made a mockery of your hub (which I did enjoy). I read hubs everyday that I don't necessarily agree with, but NEVER would I take to making a public rebuttal over them. Come on. I think there's no way around it being a personal attack. You need to email the HubPages team. Sorry for your trouble, hope you know this is indeed a unique occurence on HP. I see you are only a week old, I would have been highly turned off by such behavior. UGH...
I agree cindy, as a man I can enjoy a humorous hub about men, and this attack was wrong.
He said among other things "are you kidding just get naked already and get on all fours" This is past funny, You don't have to be a prude to find this at least tasteless, and to say it to someone you don't know or have an intimate relationship with is an outrage! As for using the picture? Not on either.
Ok listen. I'm not cursing anyone. I got told to get on all fours then got called fake. And I don't want to stand for it. Sorry for what I said. I'll just wait for maddie to do the check. Sorry again -Bree
No. I love my boyfriend. I think he is one of the smartest men in the world. He is my equal. Like I said it was a joke. Whoever has their doubts..You know what keep having them. You can doubt me cause my writing abilities are unique and im so young..But guess what I'm not going to stop writing. Do all the hub background searches you want. But don't think I can be fake just because I am 18 or why ever you think that.
True. I don't know what I did to offend fiery in the first place..But I am sorry. I am not fake..anyone can check. And I didn't mean anything with the guys thing. You read it before and didnt see a problem..So I don't get it. My boyfriend loved it. And I guess if I like it and he does thats all that matters..But still sorry if I offended you.
My money is on you being ridiculous. facebook twitter whatever please come find me and you can see every picture and every video proving I'm not a guy. And how do I know your not a chick. Come on you are taking this far. It's a hub. Aren't you older then me? Why would you personally attack me instead of trying to do something we are all here for..to write. Listen I just got out of highschool. Sorry but I'm not going back.
Bredavies, I've read both Hubs and have to say I enjoyed yours by far the most. The only thing I really liked about the Carbon Copier was the use of your picture--you are a stunningly beautiful lady, and having a larger picture than the profile thumbnail to observe was nice.
Also, your Hub is in no way a personal attack in that you hedged your opinions (admitting that some of them might even be inaccurate) and did not identify an individual other than to refer to your own boyfriend (and not by name at that). The other Hub definitely IS an attack (as Earnest quite clearly pins down) and likewise tasteless (again, as Earnest identifies). The use of the term "honey" is particularly "unsweet".
What is most disturbing (above and beyond the furor created here within HubPages and quite likely within your own assaulted psyche) is the fact that his Hub is out there on the Internet for the world to see. Others who see that might well think, "Golly gee whiz, if this is what HubPages is all about, I don't think I want to deal with them any more--and here I was going to join up and write a gazillion Hubs, too. Oh me."
Don't let it get to you, please. I read several of your Hubs and see no reason for you take any sort of back seat as a writer.
He's reported. This topic should be done. Thanks for the advice everyone. I'm going to go write some more hubs. I think you all should do the same. Drama on the hubs. I'm not going to give out my number so come at me when you find me on facebook.
It's more interesting than the whole "Pamda" thing over the weekend, that's for sure.
This is one reason I'm not sure posting real photographs is all that great an idea, especially for young women. It's unfortunate to have to say that, but it's how it is (again, especially for young women).
How did she get me? Colebadie is SO far from being my type. Besides rock, we have absolutely nothing in common. She drinks blue moon, loves reading memoirs for heaven's sake! I would never date a girl like that! I presume she's more into the 'dude' jackass type of guys, like Ron, for instance.
One of My best part in the hub is the place where the guy compares men and women to arrows and a target respectively. He says a man can shoot an arrow a million times and the arrow wont dent one bit. But just one shot on the target and it'll forever change! What balls on the guy! I know women wont find it funny! But you gotta admit, that guy has balls!
Dam it! I talked to the guy who wrote it and you know what It is kind of funny. I thought he was coming at me but he went over things and explained. I hope everyone had fun with this drama of the day. Wht a waste of creative space. We should Have a hubpage story board based on how this thing played out
Bree, One more post here just for you. We really should be writing hubs not stuff here. Seriously, I will happily take down your pic if you want. I honestly didn't know for sure it was really YOUR normal, real picture. This IS the internet. Now back to the actual hubs, okay? (Guys, I am real and I figure she is, too although I have never met her.) Thanks for all the inspiration, folks, whether you enjoyed every word or not! I'm going to bed!
I made a mistake. Everyone stop calling this a play. I already sent a long email to hubpages talking about his post and how it was an error. everyone can move on and whatever now. haha. But thanks for people being so nice and telling me to keep writing. But I guess people in this forum were the real cause to get people to quit writing..If you dont know whether someone is even a boy or a girl...You can't possibly know them. So dont act like you do.
Thanks fiery. What is YOUR opinion on spending all that money on PSAs about the phrase: "that's so gay"? Cole has inspired me. I had to visit her profile when I saw her comment on the infamous hub. My lady friend is snoring so I can't really sleep--damn!! (Bree, let's tell them the truth. Whenever a sub par hub with a high score just because it concerns a dead crotch-grabbing child-molester who used to be really great before he went crazy. . .I get angry. . .and change color. . .and gender. . .and my facial hair falls out. . .and I become. . . THE INCREDIBLE BABE!) RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!
(Mind you when I change back I don't remember a thing. . .)
No, fiery, seriously, the HULK thing was a joke. She is not me. I am not her. I just saw a chance to have fun and hoped she would get it. . .honest. Don't forget to tell me what you think about the "that's so gay" thing,too Good Night and have a pleasant tomorrow!
I flagged it. It's not right for him to post her photo and attack her personally, especially w/o permission to use the photo. He could have written a hub critical of frivolous hubs or hubs complaining about me without making it personal and being a dick.
This is yet another very interesting topic, and I couldn't prevent myself from posting.
Remember the hub on The Interesting Incident of Panda Man? Was that considered personal attack? I didn't post his photo though, oh, I did, I posted the photo of Osama Bean Laden on it. Lol. Oh well.
My suggestion. Here's some wise words from the elder panda man. Nobody can insult you. You think I'm mad eh? Lol. Yes, nobody can insult you if you refuse to. This is a rule. You will only be insulted if you feel insulted. That's when the insulter succeeds and the insulted becomes insulted, and then the insulted becomes mad and strikes back, stating that the insulter has insulted the insulted and made the insulted mad, which is not true because nobody can make anybody insulted or mad without the other guy's acceptance. If you accept to be insulted, then you fall into the traps. Was that a bunch of words? Oh, and has your mind exploded yet? If not, oh well. Check you out later.
So the solution is.... Leave it alone. Anybody with a brain seeing that hub will know that it's a flame hub, designed to try to insult others. Note that I italicized 'try to', because it won't work if you refuse to be insulted. So the idea, is forget about these things. People will know, given they are not stupid. Cheers.
I can't post any hubs. There's no point in me being here in these 4 years. I said you won't be seeing me around frequently until legal mating season. But this topic was just very interesting. Oh, by the way, did you miss me?
You weren't really gone quite long enough to miss you, I have to say; but you managed to get your name well known enough that it has been obviously absent. See you around, I guess (although I've just started my vacation and won't be around here for a while).
