LOOK AT MY PHOTOS! was do we really need "look at my pictures" updates here

Discussion in 'Digital SLR' started by Annika fan club, Apr 23, 2007.

  1. I think the Most prolific of the people posting links to their pictures who
    Matt is refering to with his objection of blatant ego tripping by posting
    his "LOOK AT MY PICTURES" links without any discussion of photography in the
    message, is none other than Annika1980/Bret Hogan/Bret Douglas or whoever he
    claimes to be this year. Were his behaviour no so sinister, it would be
    hilarious.

    This is the creep who stole a Australian Pro Photographer's identity to post
    his (the Pro's) clients pictures on Pbase with what could only be described
    as really poor taste captions and then went on a criminal spree, trying to
    hack said Pro's accounts with Fuji, Visa and eBay.

    I rather enjoyed the Pro's response in setting up a web site:
    http://www.annika1980.com to expose the creep for the childish idiot he is.
    What did said Pro do to upset this guy? Critisized his out of focus eagle
    picture
    and his "example" of a wide angle shot with blown highlights. Herein lies
    one of the issues Matt has highlighted in his question.

    When someone is so jealously obsessed with the need for peer approval for
    his often mundane, sometimes good snapshots and he doesn't get it, the
    lengths this Chattanooga Tennessee Ameture photographer went to should serve
    as a warning to all people with no social skills about the dangers of
    becoming obsessed with your past time and deciding to use your computer as a
    tool of retaliation when you can't get the results you want.

    Hogan/Douglas is now under investigation by the FBI and has had his
    Internet account revoked by Bell south. That didn't matter too much to him.
    There's always another ISP on every street corner but it does highlight that
    despite all the avenues of complaint for being unfairly defamed and
    illegally
    attacked on the Internet, the simplest response is often the most effective
    one.

    Everyone who has an aggressive thought while on Usenet ought to read this
    post and look at http://www.annika1980.com before ever contemplating putting
    those thoughts into published words.

  3. Who is it you mean? Or, if the OP has the balls to say who he is up
    front, that'd be refreshing.

    And I am jealous of Bret having a hate site dedicated to him.

    Really, I would say this guy has a bit of an obsession going on here
    and, apparently, not much of a life. That would normally be funny but
    in this day and age it's pretty scary.

    This is Duggie of course, has been quiet for a week or two but now looks
    like he is set to explode again, should be fun/sad.

  6. An interesting issue with you PD, is you amazing ability to read a
    line or two of text and presume it relates to your point of view.
    That is really sad.

  8. 'fraid not Pete. I'm just minding the store while he takes a long overdue
    holiday. Feel free to tango with me if you feel like it. I suffer fools and
    idiots far less that he does.

    Long-time contributer, and a guy who has learned to easily spot Douglas.
    You never kill-file me for more than a day, or until your next
    obviously-faked identity.
    Folks, you're looking at insanity here. There can be little question now
    that Douglas is...literally...insane.
    :(

    Really, Mark, if even half what doug claims on his site is true, Bret is
    trully a criminal figure, not to be respected. You're the devout Christian,
    why can't you see that?

    This has nothing to do with religion. It has everything to do with
    insanity.
    But since you posed that "if..."
    -That's a big "if..." since nowhere NEAR half of ANYTHING Doug says is true.
    He is a seriously disturbed person that I believe is in need of help, but it
    doesn't appear he's going to get it. If you don't see Doug's insanity, then
    you haven't been paying attention. Doug's accusations are odd, too, since
    Doug has slandered Bret FAR more than the what he accuses Bret of doing. I
    believe Doug is literally insane...so I guess you have to excuse it to a
    certain degree. What's obvious, here, is that...-were Doug to ever REALLY
    bring a case against Bret...it wouldn't take a jury 5 minutes to dismiss
    Doug as AT LEAST equally guilty, with his constant attacks, slander,
    threats, and general lack of restraint.

    Proof, in this case, is visible only to those who have observed Doug over a
    long period of time, and who have a shred of basic insight into this kind of
    behavior. If you can't see it by now, there's nothing I could say that
    would convince you. It isn't important that you agree, so feel free to see
    it differently.

  20. I've got Mark blocked in this group but I see his ranting replied to
    you,
    Matt. I have no idea where Mr Morgan got the idea someone defending
    themself
    against a criminal running rampant and uncontrolled, is insane.

    Doug set that site up after the FBI said it might take up to 6 months
    before
    they got around to investigating his complaint. It certainly hit a
    nerve
    when I made a post about the thousands of hits a month the site is
    getting.
    It's about to take a leap again as the TV stations all over Tennessee
    take
    up the story.

    The possibility of Doug actually paying for US National advertisements
    is
    getting more likely with every post containing personal vilification
    continue. Bret Douglas has to be stopped. Next time it could be you he
    takes
    a dislike to and does all those illegal acts to. How would you feel to
    see
    your clients referred to with derogatory, personally vilifying
    descriptions?

    Everything one the site http://www.annika1980.com is true. It was
    submitted
    to the University of Queensland's faculty of law for an opinion before
    he
    put it up. I know this because that's where I study. The images he put
    up
    were sent to him by someone Bret had tackled in the past.

    The headers Doug posted of the messages are unaltered. Bret Douglas
    admitted
    to stealing his identity and to setting up the pbase account in Doug's
    name.
    The messages from Pbase are genuine and unaltered. If the whole thing
    was a
    beat up on Bret, why would Pbase go to so much trouble to remove the
    stolen
    images, effectively disabling the site? He populated it with Doug's
    clients
    images which he stole from Doug's wedding photography site. Your's are
    just
    as vulnerable, Matt.

    Why Mr Morgan thinks Doug's insane is probably because he can't
    comprehend
    that someone else in the world objects to criminals doing as they
    please
    because Doug said their photos were crap. If Mr Morgan could tell
    the
    difference between a dark skinned Polynesian student sponsored by
    Doug's
    family trust (me), and The white, Anglo Saxon Douglas J. MacDonald
    (my
    benefactor) he might begin to wonder if he himself is the insane one.

    When I called on him publicly in rec.photo.equipment.35mm, to declare
    his
    approval or condemnation of IMAGE THEFT, DEFAMATION, IDENTITY THEFT
    and
    FRAUD carried out by BRET DOUGLAS (annika1980), against the
    MacDonalds, he
    refused to take a stand. Instead he begins a series of attacks on me,
    accusing me of being Doug. and (which one of us?) being insane. That
    is
    vilification and defamation. Quite enough to get his Internet access
    cancelled.

    Black and white and he can't tell the difference. I would have thought
    my
    (previously posted) knowledge of Polynesian culture and my sister and
    her
    husband joining the MacDonalds on their sailing holiday in the South
    Pacific
    might have given him a clue but he is very clearly, clueless in this
    area.

    Maybe his absurd carry on about dynamic range of LCD screens might
    give a
    clue to his mindset. It would seem to me that he is like Bret Douglas,
    if
    you don't butter him up with accolades for his happy snaps or, cant
    see the
    extremes of his images, he gets upset and starts to attack the people
    who
    call him for what he is. I did and the replies to you the result.

    Form your own opinion Matt. You've been around long enough to be able
    to
    sort the chaff from the hay. It seems to me that he and Annika1980
    think it
    OK to say and do whatever they like about, and to, anyone they target
    but
    when the target retaliates, that's different thing altogether.

    They cry foul and in Bret's case, turn to criminal acts when they
    can't get
    the effect they want with insults. Nice people NOT. I have never come
    out
    and attacked anyone who didn't attack me first.

    Having taken the defensive stand and finding it doesn't work, I then
    turn to
    affirmative action. Doug taught me that if you don't stand up for
    your
    rights, pretty soon you won't have any left. Simple but blindingly
    obvious
    to someone from my background.

    Mr Morgan is attempting to interfere with my right to post truthful
    information in support of my benefactor. He can't do that and get away
    with
    it. His comments about my and Doug's sanity are vilification. This is
    against his ISP's policy and like what happened to Bret Douglas, will
    have
    his account suspended without notice if I put in a complaint. He only
    has to
    make one more post vilifying me or Mr MacDonald and I will. Three
    strikes
    and he'll get it!
