Please remember that this is a public board and what you post isn't just seen by ladies here. And we are bound to run into some freaks. The best thing you can do is just IGNORE posts you think are fake. If you think/know a person is fake then the worse thing you can do is keep responding to them and feeding into the drama. Whether they are getting bashed or not they feed off the attention they get. Don't give them a chance to put their story out there. If someone has stolen your pictures please do feel free to report the theft to iVillage. There is a very safe way to post your pics and avoid this problem though. It's called water marking. If you don't have a photobucket account you should get one, it makes it really easy to post pictures here and it makes it really easy to protect your pictures. I have posted this before but I will once more post and explain how to watermark your pictures to protect them from being stolen. So once you have a photobucket account upload the picture you want to share. Then click on the picture and it will open a new page with just the picture. Scroll over the picture and it gives you some options. Hit the EDIT button. That will bring you into the decorating pages. Click on the DECORATE option. Under it you have several options. Click on the gray T for TEXT. It will open up a box on the picture to write it, and a toolbar next to it. First thing you want to do is go to the toolbar, pic your writing and size, then click the button on the bottom of the page that says TRANSPARENT BACKGROUND. Then anything you write will appear over the picture but not block out the picture. Then you want to write something along the lines of property of, or even your iVillage screen name. Now that you have your writing go back to the options on the top of the page and hit the button labelled LAYERS. Then choose the option OPACITY. Set that to whatever level you want and your writing will become see through, but still visible, with you choosing how visible you want the writing. You want to place your writing somewhere it can't be cut off. Like over the faces or the main focus of the picture. Then save and post that picture and it will come out like this:
