I agree.

BTW, the spelling is chutzpah. But it's pronounced pretty close to the way you wrote it. Either way, it means she has a lot of nerve!!

But "hootspa" looks so darn cute!!!
Actually, being a student of the Hebrew language of late, the spelling chutspah is more correct. The pronunciation starts with a throat clearing kind of sound, "ch"ootspah.

But....maybe that's a little too much information!
Wow! I'll have to write in to the folks at Merriam-Webster (www.m-w.com) which is where I checked for the spelling and let them know that they spelled it wrong. Thanks for the info.

Just an FYI, but some of us have used the expression, "You have too much time on your hands", in a light hearted tone to mean, "Wow, this must have taken you a long time!" It isn't always meant as a put down, in fact until I read this thread I didn't realize it could be a put down. I learn something new every day! LOL

Thanks again,

Amy, I am sorry this happened to you, and that there's really nothing that can be done. But, the moderators are correct in that this is not something they have control over either. When you post something on on the internet, it's hard to police it from there on in regarding who views and/or "borrows" it. I know there are some websites that have a way of not allowing right-click saving, but I don't know how.

One thing I've done lately, after seeing some other gals do it, is figure out how to "watermark" the SU copyright and my name as artist going right across the image. It doesn't keep the viewer from seeing it clearly but it does make it difficult for anyone else to appropriate it and claim credit themselves.

Lessons learned I guess...(hugs)


Hugs,
Betsy

Ain't technology great... We put our images out there to share and case and this lazy gal was just that-- LAZY. Too lazy to make her own for her auction. I think she just saw it as a shortcut and didn't mean to piss anyone off. I won't even talk about the demo violation, except to say is it worth getting kicked out of SU for $30. I'd focus on reporting her to SU, not the sneaky photo stealing.

That is a good point - you might not be able to do anything about her visiting the site here, but you most certinaly can do something about reporting her to SU demo support about violating the SU demo policy.

As Betzy said, watermarking your images with SU! copyright and your name as the artist is probably the only way to protect yourself/your work. The only other way, is not to post it online.

Unfortunately, this has happened to me in the past and I contacted the offender privately and never got a response.

But, after that, I never uploaded another creation until I learned to somehow watermark that photo, and while I know it's annoying to some to see it on there as it can detract from the photo, I will not upload without it any more. And, I deliberately put the watermark in a position that makes it difficult to crop it out without cropping out a portion of project itself.

Sad and sorry fact of the internet, but do take steps to protect yourself.

Check out your photo editing software and see if there's a way to do it. It can be easily done with Adobe Photoshop Elements, but I don't know how to do it any other way. I'm on a Mac.

I also think she probably saw it as a shortcut - take a look online (particularly on ebay) and you'll find that "borrowing" pictures is pretty common. As an example, that "why you shouldn't post your picture on the internet" series is posted all over the place by people who didn't make it up - that's the nature of the internet. Watermarking software is cheap & easy if you wish to preserve your pictures.

Regarding reporting her to SU - take some deep calming breaths & ease up!! It's pretty clear she didn't know she wasn't supposed to do it, and given all the flames she's gotten, she sure knows it now!

Let's stamp instead of spending our time getting indignant. I love stamping and I love all the creative examples here on SCS!

There are, I'm sure...lots of different ways to spell it depending on which dictionary you look in. You should see it when living overseas in countries with different alphabets altogether. There are 3 different signs next to each other, all with the name of the town we lived in and they all have different spellings. The reason for this is that there is a Hebrew letter tzadie that makes the sound like the "zz" in pizza. It's hard to know how exactly how to write that in English. Is it ts, tz, z, or what? They also have one letter that makes a "sh" sound.

There's also no way to convey the throat clearing sound that the Hebrew language has...by using English letters. We tend to use ch, but that's not the right sound.

OK....now I'm sure this is way too much info...so I'll stop now!
