    Am I the only one that had a bunch of their pics stolen off this website for grindr spam bots? I've had ppl send me at least 50 screenshots of different profiles using my pics and some of them were pics only posted on this site so I know thats where they came from.

    Any pics you post on the internet has the potential to be misappropriated. I've heard a lot of older physique/bodybuilding guys say their pics were stolen and used for bogus viagra ads, or rejuvenation spam. Or their heads were photoshopped out and replaced with headshots from stock photos.

    If it's really a problem for you, then only post low resolution images, and/or add watermarks to your pics.

    Actually, I've seen a lot of RJ pics used for the daily Grindr spambot. The "Sup" message from some hot guy who is 2'4" that appears if you don't log on for 24 hours. It appears to be Grindr itself trying to lure you to log in. I assume that some employee in the Grindr office is doing it.

    This may help some. Go to 'Preferences' and then down to 'Profile Preferences" and then check "Allow only members who are signed in to the RealJock site to view my profile"

    True, but apparently it's very important to some. My profile is on "members only" too but at one time it wasn't.

    Have you guys noticed how all the bots are muscular, white and bro-looking? It's interesting.

    Internet pix can get stolen from anywhere...

    My firm posted a headshot of me in an online newsletter on our company web site, and it got picked up on a bunch of "haircuts for white collar professional" sites...

    I almost would have preferred it on some sexy "here's a hot guy" site... Instead of some "here's a sharp haircut" site.... icon_rolleyes.gif

    Yeah, it sucks when they snatch your pic and use it on dating sites, such as Match.com or elsewhere.
    You can take your pics one at a time and look in google images and see where they show up. I found one of mine from my RJ profile on 3 different Linkdin profiles!
    All you can do is write the admins of each site and ask them to delete it.

    There are exactly the ones I'm referring to. They always say I'm 28-33 2'4 and have automated responses. I've been sent screenshots from 8 different states so far. Its not a huge deal but they are definitely coming from this site.
