1) Publishing a photo without permission is not "stealing". It's "copyright infringement". Stop being stupid.
2) The kind of people who know how to remove a watermark (even one as easily removable as that) are generally the kind of people who probably wouldn't pay anyway
Watermarks are for naive people who think that "on the Internet" means "free to use". This way, either they use it anyway and viewers know where it came from or -- far less likely -- they actually put 2 and 2 together and contact the photographer.
I understand its cold at this time of year but what the fuck are you on about? I'm saying his watermark is pointless because if someone stole it, it would take 3 seconds in paint to crop it out, so why put it there in the first place.
