Sometimes irony bites you so hard in the ass you can’t sit down for a week. Here’s a post from snake oil peddler “Naturally Nicole”, claiming another web site has stolen copyrighted material from her:
My arguments with Nicole are over her poor science and terribly dangerous health advice regarding vaccines, cancer cures, and medications. But if copyrighted material was taken from her page, I fully support her in her battle.
However, we’ve got a clear case of the pot calling the kettle black here. Let’s look at a recent Nicole post where she misled readers on fish farming:
See that fish farm photo in Nicole’s post? The one without any credit/attribution? What’s the source of this image?
Nicole, let me introduce you to Google reverse image search:
It’s pretty easy. You feed “Nicole’s” uncredited fish farm image into the Google search and seconds later… we find out she used a copyrighted image, without permission or attribution, from Shutterstock.com.
Nicole, if people are using your content without permission, then you have a legitimate complaint As dangerous as you are with your horrific misinformation on vaccines, I thought I found one small thing I could support you on.
But now? Remember that old saying… when you’re pointing one finger at someone, you’ve got three pointing right back at you.
