    What do you guys think about certain RJ members using pics of other people in their profile, leading others to believe it is them in the pic?

    Another RJ member is using a professional/copywritten pic of another man as his main profile picture. Would you be friends with or trust this person?

    In my opinion, people like this should be called out on their dishonesty and told to remove the pics.

    Thoughts?

    Wolverine4 is not claiming that photo is of him. That is about promoting the gay football team here in the Detroit/Ann Arbor area that he is a big part of. If you look at his profile you can tell the real photos of him and those are really him, I have met him.

    There are many people here trying to pass themselves off as someone else using fake photos, but he is not one of them.

    AMoonHawk saidNo biggy if they have their real pic in their profile and as long as you can tell that the main pic that they want to use is not actually them. Like some like to use a cartoon character or a torso pic or pic of their feet .... it's their choice or what they feel comfortable with. Do you have control issues?


    I have issues with people misrepresenting themselves. Yes, other people use cartoon pics (Hi, Charlitos!) or faceless pics that are actually of their body as their main profile pic (I do, in fact), but when that pic is of SOMEBODY ELSE, it's lying and deceitful.

    And in this guy's case, he allows other people to comment and praise how good he looks in the photo, without bothering to be honest.

    As I responded to someone else in my post above, in this guy's case, he allows other people to comment and praise how good he looks in the photo, without bothering to be honest. If he truly isn't trying to pass himself off as someone else, then he should state so in the photo caption, IMO.

    The caption of that photo:

    "Come play with us - www.MichiganPanthers.org . Football camp coming up May 19th & 20th with social events on Friday & Saturday night. Chicago PriideBowl June 22-24. Ask for details. Friend "Michigan Panthers" on Facebook for event invites."

    And look at a sample of some of the comments (below) that he approved. This continues the fabrication that that pic is of him. And if the pic was promoting something three years ago, it should have been taken down by now.

    What is your problem with this guy? There are plenty of fake profiles on here and I have uncovered many of them. This is not one of them. This is one photo on his profile and the rest are of him or something to do with his interests. Is there some run in you have had with him that the rest of us do not know about? Save your scorn for someone trying to pass himself off as some else, not this one. There are plenty of those people here with no real pics of themselves in their profiles, but only fake ones.

    I'll get off my soapbox. I don't really have an issue with this guy in particular, and I've not had any interaction with him beyond asking him via message if the pic was really him - to which I got no response.

    You're right that there are MUCH worse offenders out there, trying to pass themselves off others. Maybe it was because he used this pic as his primary profile pic, or maybe because the photo was taken by a well-known photographer. Either way, I'm over it.

    isn't that the point of having verified profiles? Just saying...

    It's not Wolverine's fault if people think that he's the guy in the pic.

    Relax, it's only the Internet.



    Well, he does have a legitimate concern here about fake profiles. No one should be trying to use photos here that are not of them to pass themselves off as someone else. It's just that in this case, W4 is not a fake profile. Some people here really are fakes and have only fakes pics in their profiles. I'll call them out on it when I see it.

    Should be easy enough to tell who's fake and who's not and if you're unsure then just go by who's verified.

    There is this one guy on here using a pic of Divine holding a gun and in a beautiful red dress. I thought maybe Divine had made a profile here. I went to the profile and it wasn't Divine at all! Looking at the profile, I believe it is this guy Joseph Stalin trying to pass himself off as Divine.



    Either that, or it's Bette Davis.

    Yes, this is terrible! We should assume that all of our interactions on the interwebz are real! icon_rolleyes.gif

    In the cited example, if you can't tell it's a fake, you are better off not knowing... icon_lol.gif
