I was just talking with my friend about this and explaining it to her, and this is all I can come up with;
I am in NO WAY defending picture stealers. I absolutely hate it just as much as the rest, but I am having to assume it is the economy. Everyone and their mom is all of a sudden deciding they want to sell bows. I think this idea that you can make a quick buck is getting really big with everyone out of work, needing extra income etc. SO, I can only assume that people are stealing pictures because they dont have the money/time/ability/ etc. etc. etc and think it is a cheap way to start out??? Then IF they make the sale they will then order the materials etc???
COMPLETELY unacceptable, but this is all I can think of for why it is happening a LOT lately???
I am in NO way defending!!! Just trying to rationalize why it is happening so much lately.
