He thinks he edits them enough that they're his??? All he did was flip it and cut off the head!!! I was trying not to get into this, but when I saw this journal entry, I had to say something.....why doesn't somebody report him???
I'm very very very DISAPPOINTING for what happened and this person live in Indonesia, my country. More specific: in BALI, where a lot of great artists live in there. Behalf of my country I'm so sorry guys. This low person makes me really angry. I should find this person and teach him a lesson!!
No, don't worry I'm not that kind of person who beat out people with any reason. First, I will report his act to DA (already done) and second I will post this incident into our online forums. That's what I have in mind right now, I'll think of another way to stop this person.
Thank you for pointing it out! Its sad that people think that just photoshopping something stupid on it, or changing it a little, means its theirs! They should atleast try to be creative *shakes head* I have reported them.
i got a message from DA saying the image was removed by Bali-douchebag-poet when i reported it, but sadly seems like there many more images he has ripped off, .... hopefully not for too much longer, as he should be banned.
wow, what a total douche bag. i was pretty shocked to be honest when i signed on to DA,and almost left but there are artists here, some really good ones. i feel for the models cause there is always some risk of subjugation,and exploitation of ones image, especially for females. Beauty, eroticism, art, reduced to parts consumed by those who can't see past their selfish need to possess. Hope someone punches him in the fucking mouth, and he gets banned.

has given me a warning that has faved my work, but I don't think he stole it...yet. If he likes it and faves it but doesn't take it, is that okay? This is my first encounter with a thief like this, I have many questions. I'm really worried, can you tell me more?

I just left a comment on his profile. I thought about putting it in Indonesian for him, since he said he lives there (Now that I think about it, he speaks pretty good English for a foreigner) and tagging it with an Indonesian racial slur, but I don't know any.
hey there,... I don't know whether balipoet is going to steal your work after faving it. but I know that he faved hundreds of pictures shortly after being accused to be an art-theft. Potentially to cover his front-page with "thank yous" instead of the "You Theft!" that are coming now. Though I guess you don't have to worry. Just keep an eye on what he is submitting. and...don't be grateful to a thief and just let him know what you think about people like him. That is why I noticed you and others. And thanks for your reply.
on the right side of each submission you can find a "report this" button. If you click on it you have the opportunity to report that submission for the appropriate reason. Just send the link to *Solus-Photography's journal entry and a short explanation that you are reporting an art theft. and that's it.
