    I just got an email from the Shoot In auto-responder telling me it just
    received my submission. However I've never submitted *anything* to the SI so
    this is not my doing. Either someone sent in one of my shots without my
    permission (in which case the persons running the show are asked to remove it
    to avoid copyright issues) or someone has submitted their own work or stolen
    images from someone else and stolen my name and email address as a cover.

    I noticed the past couple of days 20-30 posts were filtered out when I logged
    on so I'm guessing maybe others have complained about this and I didn't see
    them since I have [SI], "Shoot In" and a dozen other variations of this in my
    kill filters. So maybe I'm not the only one ...

    It's just the latest round of attempts from bitter trolls with no talent,
    who feel threatened by the shoot-in.

    I got two of those e-mails today.
    Clearly they feel that a strategy of flooding the SI with fakes will harm

    It's much like the bully that is incapable of winning friends, who therefore
    sets out to experience a false sense of importance through attracting
    negative attention.

    We're dealing with full-grown children here.

    They'll move back to their video games soon enough.

    Meanwhile...just yawn and watch them squirm once again through their own

    Hmmm, yawn, infantile troll out to play again. Still, shame if he annoyed
    Bill, however momentarily.

    But, Bill, do note: it ain't a competition - that's the whole point.
