On the other hand, you could be giving 'credit' to a source who simply stole the photo from another source anyway...
It's very rare that anyone will have the original of any photo, although some people have occasionally bought them.
I know we all take pictures from elsewhere, but most of us don't systematically and regularly take them and almost immediately post them without giving credit. Do you do that?
Take it from me, the hard working members here who compile very interesting posts which could have taken 30-40 hours to put together, or those that provide us with rare and/or good quality photos or information, could stop sharing and posting if they find part of their work being regularly "stolen" by someone who is then claiming the credit and the kudos for them on a FB page or on another forum. I don't want that to happen. Do you?
