Hi Jameela,
when i posted that alert, i wasn't trying to slander or anger you. I
admit, i used the word "stolen" rather casually, just because that is
how we are used to referring to such things. You are right, you did
not steal them, you copied. It seems though, that all too often
people will claim other's pictures as their own, so naturally we are
all on high alert for this happening. Obviously, this case wasn't as
it seemed. I just wanted to let the artists know, so that if indeed
it was the case, they could set things straight. I'm sorry if i
offended you in any way. I was just acting on the information i had,
and i was not aware that you planned to give credit.

: Dear fellow henna artists,
: :
: : My apologies to those who have been offended by my
: : site. I had linked my site to my egroup, which is open to the
: public
: : to see. Some of the pictures on there were from sites that said
: : could be shared. All of the information on different websites are
: for
: : the public eye anyways. Why is it that it is taken as offense
: i
: : publish it on my site. I was working on my links page to give
: credit
: : to all the sites when i read this post, and it upset me so much.
: : was literally uploading the page, and now i'm reconsidering. My
: : intention was not harm but to be part of the henna artist
: community.
: : I was researching ideas from different sites on how they gave
: credit
: : to other sites, and i was trying to think of the best way to do
: : And in the title above suggests i stole the pictures, i copied
: them,
: : and put them on my egroup last December, that was months before i
: : even uploaded my site. I merely linked to my egroup, and i was
: going
: : to link to other henna sites and give them all credit. I wasn't
: aware
: : it would offend anyone doing this, but i guess it did. I
: : but please don't slander my site. For those who care i took off
: : the pictures from my egroup and i'm currently uploading my new
: site.
: : Giving credit to anything or anyone i have on the site that was
: : made by me. For anyone that wishes that i put links up for them
: just
: : say and i'll link up to my site. Also anyone that has any other
: : suggestions can feel free to say. Hopefully this clears the
: : up, otherwise you can email me at
