Bitch to your brother about it. I'm sure he'll act all uppity and pretend that there is absolutely nothing wrong, like he always does.

As for the Twitter RPG, that's classy. Just steal EVERYONE's artwork, then pretend you're a non-commercial, tiny project and so it's okay. Apparently stealing shit is fine if you're a poor, starving 'artist'?


Why is the she the bad guy here? I've little sympathy for her, or anyone, who puts something on social media and expects it to stay private but that article is just a list of reasons why they don't like Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook; they throw in an admission that Randi isn't Mark but then ignore this inconvenient fact without even explaining why it supposedly doesn't matter that they're different people.

All she said was "Digital etiquette: always ask permission before posting a friend's photo publicly. It's not about privacy settings, it's about human decency." - is that especially unreasonable? It's dumb to expect, but it doesn't warrant this attack piece.

There seems to be a parallel with the Twitter RPG story, except the baddies have been switched around. Someone finds their content unexpected being used by someone else, isn't happy about it. They're not the same and I have sympathy for those whose work has been stolen, but why does some nobody's mild annoyance after making a small mistake deserve this smear?
