Gallery Intrusion


Link Posted 09/05/2019 - 14:37
I was miffed this morning to discover a commercial for Google Play residing in our Gallery. An older photo (sitting next to my pigeon/tulip image) of the front facade of the Art Gallery of Ontario) which I did NOT put there today, is mine, along with the EXIF , but the photographer's name is NOT mine. A long commercial text follows. How the heck did this happen? Site manager: what can be done about this blatant invasion of privacy?

If you go to the bottom of the forum you will see report problem. Click on that and let them know.
The Google Play ad has snuck in as a new member's photo. She has chosen to post a load of garbage about it.
The pigeon/tulip photo has your name in the details as far as I can see.

Hi go4IT,

I've removed the photo, basically a spammer has come along, created a new account and uploaded one of you photos, probably having viewed your profile from the pigeon photo.

Apologies for this, but a little bit out of our control.

All the best,
