It is always amazing to me to see how images that are in the What's Hot section are assumed to be that of the poster and also commenters do not even seem to care and just hand out compliments with no research at all…

Oh well – I guess part of me does not care and the other part that really try's to post good quality content for my followers with proper credit really gets a bit bent about it…but only on Sunday mornings….lying in bed wondering what I should post on G+ for that day…

Oh well – off to steal someone's image and get 1000 +1's and 300+ comments about it, then not answer to what I have done….or give any credit…

You want a good community that is self policing, do not +1 or comment …. just like your parents told you.. ignore them and they will go away…

* And if this person did take all these photos from their home base in India, from all around the world – then I take it back and they are my hero *

    There are dozens of them Brent. Most of them are pig ignorant, and this includes those from the States and Britain.
    I never go to What's Not. Too much good stuff to see in the normal steam

    so agree with you and it's all about our intelligence – not to +1 or to comment on the clearly stolen images.. ! +100 to this post !
    as usual i report to G+ about these members ! +Brent Burzycki 

     and it about your intelligence to read the description near the posted image if it available "great photo, nice work" +Hal Rottenberg – supercomment !

    I like this one better – when there is a "+1" in the comment and they  + 1 it……

    I think I have come up with my solution…

    +Victor Bezrukov I think it shows us what is maybe wrong with society in many cases.. lack of research and dedication to what is correct….

    +Brent Burzycki  not so agree, i think that it shows us the real interest of average member's … "panem et circenses"

    +Victor Bezrukov ok that is a good quote to sum up many of the issues….

    I guess I'm missing your point.  Are you saying only original content is relevant?  Should Anu have said I found this interesting photo and where she found it?  Without a footnote are all things we find interesting in the world just theft?  I'm just trying to understand what your saying in relations to the photo posted and the response it garnered.

    I like the original content.  Posting without credit is wrong,  I try not to + that type of post and have un-circled folks for taking content like that.

    +Tim Smith The issue is taking credit for what is not done by them… I have no issues with resharing and even posting images with proper credit… This person clearly has one agenda….

    I think that's why I've stopped circling people who just post other people's things all the time and nothing personal or from themselves. I know we like to share things here but some people seem to have way to much time on there hands and just everything by anyone else. Some give credit where it's due but very few do and that's sad.

    I guess its just that important to some to be noticed and not care who they harm on the path…

  13. +Kevin Gault Same over here. If I see people just resharing and never post something they have done, they "leave" my circles 😉
