I suppose this is a rant as well as a question, but a friend of mine was searching profiles on adam4adam the other day and came across a fake profile using my photographs and my profile verbatim. The offending jerk even blatantly ripped off my screen name (Makoshark1983 is my profile) by using the screen name "Makoshark". He slightly changed the age, weight, and height, as well as a few minor details, but I can't help but feel so violated by this. It has happened on a few different occasions in years past, but this is the most current example. Has this ever happened to you, and if so, how did you deal with it besides reporting it to the moderators of the site? My friends say that I should laugh it off and feel flattered that someone thinks highly enough of my photos to use them, but I'm just annoyed that some random stranger is using my likeness, and is probably being a dick about it. Any similar stories?
