At least you could use some better photos, and certainly not somebody else's one already published on a hundred other sites, presenting them here as your own.
Steemit Community values original and quality content!

She is my personal trainer. Those are definitely photos of her.

Who the hell are you? An apology is in order.

Or do you want me to list down 200 or more other sites where the same illustration has been used???

And I am the one who doesn't care if she is your trainer or not if she is a plagiarist!

·
·
·

Or perhaps she doesn't know how to use sources properly yet as she's a newbie? Did you even consider helping her before you attack her so viciously? Listen, I didn't get laid either last night but I won't take it out to poor folks (especially newbies who have a lot to learn and need guidance) on Steemit. Relax a tiny bit for fuck sakes ;)))

·

·

For your information, I have spent 2 years on this platform coaching people (in groups, on the one-on-one basis, through Steem.chat, Discord, Skype... - you name it). If I spent just 10% of that time creating my own posts and in different ways craving for the attention of big SP account holders, my wallet would very likely look different. But I enjoyed (and still do) when my students outperform me (what many of them did).

However, (read my initial comment once again), maybe you'll figure out that it has been addressed more to ring the bell of those (and some, apparently recognized themselves) capable to highly upvote such plagiarised crap content than to the author itself (as I am aware she is new - although, I've learned on the way some things should be cut in its roots).

And BTW, your language is not very appealing if even appropriate.

·
·
·
·
·

It's because I pick my language wisely depending the person's attitude in front of me each time. You are doing great on Steemit and congratulations. However, Steemit is nothing more than just another social media platform and part of the world we live in. And this world is supposed to be a free world (in theory), right? So, anyone can vote/support whoever he/she wants to. The upvoter in this case has created 95% of his SP from his own pocket (FIAT money he made in the real world and invested on Steemit), so if he wants to support people from his real environment, I don't see where is the problem exactly. Do you?

I have been raised in a way to respect the rules of the house I'm in it.
In that sense, Steemit "house" has its rules as well. They are very transparently delivered to every new user, before creating their first post, in the following form.
When you first log in to your Steemit Account

Some of those links are:

Through above-listed links, every new user would be guided as well to read "Helpful Posts from Steemit Users" among which they may find the following ones:

According to all just listed, and to answer your question, that's exactly where the problem is and where I see it!

·

We don't disagree there at all. I am 100% for crediting sources correctly and respecting the rules of the platform that host us. Sure!!! However, if the experienced steemians like you and me attack newbies by doing a mistake in their very first post instead of guiding them and showing them the right way, Steemit will become a ''prive club'' for very few members and that's the ideal way to fail and never grow as a community. It's her first post, she made a mistake as she didn't know better. Show her the right way, don't take her head off because she got a fat vote. That is my opinion. Have a nice day :)

She is trained in pilates. She has every right to use that illustration, as do the "hundred other sites" you mention, on her business cards, on her studio, and here on this post. The photos are, as I said, of her.

As I said, an apology is in order.

·
·
·
·

Don't ask for so hard things these days... "apology"(?) what does it even mean in 2018?

·
·
·
·
·

I guess you're right. That belongs to the old days when people still had honor.

·
·
·
·

Oh WOW, so she is even using it for her business.
I'm "sure" then, that she must have been paid the author for that kind of commercial use use as well (not only for Steemit publishing commercial purposes).

BTW - you have been around long enough to know it better.
And in that sense, if someone owes the apology to whom, then you just owe me the one.

·
·
·
·

Apology for what ? For pointing out plagiarism ? Or for bad photo quality? Maria could at least step up and explain (or apologize) not let her friends do the talking.
She has read those comments and still haven't removed the photo or at least referred to the source

·
·
·
·
·

It is her very first post. She knows nothing about the platform yet. I was not the one who told her about steemit, but I am happy to see her here. And I welcome her and wish her a good journey with us.

The apology would be for making a rude, jealous and vindictive comment rather than a kind and welcoming greeting with suggestions for improvement and pointers as to where she may have erred.

·

well i don't see any sources link at your first posts
@ana-maria62
And the same goes to you @annabi at this post
ALL you little pointy fingers ! LOL

Explain yourselfs now please

·
·
·
·

If you point out photo, it's made by me :) You can check it, I also have it on my website.
Also got verified by Steemcleaners.
If you point out content, i have rights to redistribute it however i want

I'm sorry that I didn't see this comment earlier @rouketas, but as you didn't tag me properly (purposely or not), I'm aware of it just now, when another user drow my attention to it.

But to answer your "pointing finger" comment...
In all my posts (or at least 99% of them), including the first ones, I'm using my own photos or the photos from Pixabay.com (which are under the CC0 Creative Commons license, free for commercial use and with NO attribution required).

Therefore, and just for your information, I didn't need and I don't need to put a source for any of these! (Although, now and for quite some time by now I'm doing that even for them too, just because of those people who don't care for someone else's authors rights.) When I use other sources (if they are free to use and free to use for commercial purposes) I give a proper attribution.

Accordingly, the post you've linked to contains the photos, images and/or illustrations from Pixabay.com, some of which I changed, by that creating my own derivative work (what I'm also allowed to do with Pixabay photos) for the purpose of my article.

The same applies even to the (arrow) GIF as it's, in fact, my own creation. This GIF is created with several images and illustration from Pixabay. Again, my own derivative work!

And last, but not least, for "smart ones" as you apparently wanted to be, and just in case, I keep the records for every single source that I have ever used (no matter if for my online or offline publishing).

So, to conclude...
My dear finger pointer, who didn't do your research well or even at all, you pointed your finger at the wrong direction!!!


P.S. (edited)
And now, also seeing @annaabi's reply to you, it seems it wasn't only a wrong direction, it was in fact wrong directionS!!!

·

Hi @ann-maria it's her very first post. Why not give her a break and warmly welcome her and at the same time give her advice and tips. We need more happy users. She'll learn and improve just like we all needed to do.

·
·

he is right. Stop the war and welcome her!

·
·

I totally agree with you, @kus-knee . It's her first post and everyone knows the best way to welcome a newbie teaching how steemit works is to give him/her a warm welcome and some tips too, for sure a rude approach to newbies is really a bad bad thing to do!

·
·

Hi @kus-knee! I know it's her first post and that's why I didn't downvote it but either not upvoted it.
And yes, I'm sorry that all these, afterward conversation is happening under her blog and post, but as I was attacked here for having the guts for speaking the ugly truth, I'm replying where I have been called.

I'm sorry, but so far besides initially said, I don't have anything more to say to this user as she didn't even bother to reply on my comment (in any way). As @annaabi very well noticed, she...

... could at least step up and explain (or apologize) not let her friends do the talking.
She has read those comments and still haven't removed the photo or at least referred to the source

And regarding the tips, I think I left enough good links and resources (in one of my comment-replies above to another user) that might be useful to her is she missed or neglect them at the beginning (which tips, links, and resources any of her strong defenders didn't bother to provide her with all the way through).
And if nothing else, because of all of that I'm sure she will have a chance to learn and improve, and I hope she would grab that chance the most positive way she can. The rest - the time will show.

·
·
·

The tips were good and I'm glad that you left them. :) I would have handled it differently starting with a welcome and then the rest but we're all different.

All the best to you and keep up the good work and passion.

·
·
·
·

Thanks! 🙂 I agree with you that I could handle it differently. And the only excuse I have why I didn't probably lie around the fact that steem-cleaning is not an easy task at all and even less some popular one. But after several hours dealing with a different kind of abusers, most of which have the same or very similar approach, and especially with those who are persistent in their abusive attempts, no matter how do you approach them, I suppose, and being sick of all of that, I reacted a bit too impulsive.
In that sense, I can't tell you how hard I'm waiting for HF20, although it wouldn't free us of all the problems we have around at the moment, and many things would still be left for further improvements.

·

Thanks for letting me know that.

I didn't realize that you were involved in Steem-Cleaning. I love that service and it is needed.

I kind of figured you might be having a bad day. Let's all "kiss and make up" as they say.

Peace and Love!
