I agree totally, Stephen. It is a compliment that someone condsiders an image good enough to be used, but in the case of commercial usage, then the appropriate licensing fee should be paid (assuming the image is marked as being for sale). Private use is another matter, and I would be only too pleased if my images were considered good enough to be of interest, provided due acknowledgement is given to me and PoE.
As for the link to the thieving website, I can see the logic of removing the link. Thank you, Ron, for spotting my error in giving them undeserved 'hits'.
