Yet again......you are being reported to Photobucket for not only posting obscene and disturbing pictures, but also for stealing pictures. Someone should have thought about the fact that we might RECOGNIZE these dogs........
Considering that the dog is from a member of this forum.....not only is it theft of an image without permission from the owner, but it can also be percieved as a threat to the owner and the owners animals.
The problem is any hacker can hack to anywhere they want and post from ANY computer. My brother in law has told me that you can hack into any computer and as long as you can find out what the password is(they actually have programs to decode them) then they are basically logged on as you. If they play from that computer, that is their IP, technically, they could be in Denver but their IP runs to ASIA because that is just where they tapped into.......sometimes you can not trace farther back. So banning IPs do NO good. That is probably why they are able to get around everything so well, all they have to do is tap in somewhere else. Sadly, it is incredibly easy to be a hacker now days.
Riley & Katz---That's someone's dog from here? Gosh this is really frustarting. The sad part is he'll get away with it b/c like you said.. he can do this from ANY computer. At his library.. etc.. Maybe if we ignore everything they post, they'll go away? HA. and.. did you see the link part of the photobucket post. The F word yet again, and it is just digusting as far as what he said.
I would let it go, if I didn't know that young kids were on here. My girls(4 and 6) like to look at pictures of the animals on here but now I feel like I must check out every link before I let them in the room. I am a mom and I will NOT let this go quietly. This has happened too long and too much on here. There needs to be a better way to secure this site. Whether that means that ADMIN gets on here more and actually watches the site or they do better screening. I do not know but SOMETHING has GOT to change.........
Either that, or they need to make this a 18 and older site.
Although there is no universally accepted definition of cyberstalking, the term is used in this report to refer to the use of the Internet, e-mail, or other electronic communications devices to stalk another person. Stalking generally involves harassing or threatening behavior that an individual engages in repeatedly, such as following a person, appearing at a person's home or place of business, making harassing phone calls, leaving written messages or objects, or vandalizing a person's property. Most stalking laws require that the perpetrator make a credible threat of violence against the victim; others include threats against the victim's immediate family; and still others require only that the alleged stalker's course of conduct constitute an implied threat.(1) While some conduct involving annoying or menacing behavior might fall short of illegal stalking, such behavior may be a prelude to stalking and violence and should be treated seriously.
its sad that we have to be careful of every friggen picture and word we post because some loony has got a burr up his butt towards certain members here. its also SCARY that they know so much and right where our old posts are. this person is beyond troll. they are an out and out STALKER . those pictures were very threatening besides being sick.
