The primary problem, it seems to me, is that the megjestic site is being direct linked, which their site tells us not to do. Doesn't this make Brucie ... choke ... right?

They invite viewers to freely take their work. They don't want linking because it increases their bandwidth. But that's not copyright violation or stealing intellectual property. Increasing traffic to their website is not plagiarism. Attribution is unneeded because they give free, open rights their IP.

This is just Brucie making noise.

Humor him.

Actually, the best thing is to not come to these forums at all. Definitely, one can get by better by ignoring the regular shitheads like DanWeiss and Pueno, but when it comes right down to it, Windsurfing isn't done on the internet, is it?

Which explains why you're always on the Internet, big guy.

Yep. But the increased volume from IWS viewers is microscopic and probably beneath the noise level compared to linking from a site such as Google or Yahoo. Look at the file sizes for these GIFs and you'll understand why..... they're tiny.

And the increased bandwidth -- whether they like it or not -- is not theft of IP, which they freely give away. So this is a non issue. It's all smoke and noise created by Mr. Not-Too-Swift.

Hi Mike,
Just ignore Brucie and all his aliases. He really is the loser that he sounds to be. Honest. Please do not expend energy on his behalf. It will be wasted. He has soooo many aliases that he often ends up arguing with himself. He is truly a waste of time. Not sure why he finds this concept so amusing but he is one of those who can't find his way out of a paper bag without, or even with... a flashlight. You are too smart a guy to fall for this guy.
long time no see, and best wishes!
Ellen

faller, prove me wrong, but I take the fact that you are expressing your opinions about this insidious phantom Brucie for a serious indication that you are a complete idiot.

What on earth gives you that idea? Can you provide facts to support that accusation? Wink
