    Why was "Opera Pumps done wrong" deleted? Too FNB for the forum?

    Unauthorized use of pictures and violent statements toward the pictured pump-wearer.

    No violent statements were posted there. People were definitely commenting on how awful the pictures were, but if the hyperlinking of that users' image was problem, it could have been easily circumvented by just posting a link to his blog.

    Still, unauthorized uses of someone else's image by creating a link on a website is not illegal. No one has ever sued for linking to someone else's image when it's hosted on their site so there are no laws about it. A simple way to circumvent embedding someone else's image using .htaccess, which is what the problematic user should have done. Alas, using a crappy blog site I doubt they allow you to edit .htaccess. His loss.

    I don't think the threak should have been deleted, but it's your site.

    This is not true; people certainly can and do sue. Whether the lawsuit has merit is not important when you are the one being sued. When a person requests that his own photo (of him or to which he holds copyright) be removed, we do it. It may or may not be the law of the moment or jurisdiction, but it is good manners.
    I may clean it up and put it back if people will behave themselves.
