Recent one was a lurker that stole a moderator's pic and tried to pawn it off as her own. Personally I think if you are caught stealing pics on here you should be automatically banned.
I completey agree and I HATE that! Take your own damn pictures. God knows mine aren't the greatest (I have some modeled ones that are excellent, but mine are only somewhat decent), but I still have great sales on Etsy. If you steal other people's photos, what does that say about you - not only as a businesswoman, but as a person?
Known picture thieves should definitely be banned.
