    nah.... no worries.... just delete the posting (that's what i did) and everything will soon be a dim distant memory....

    Hi Virgo,

    Has seen your pics. And really liked the Harbour Bridge at Night one. I'm a sucker for colours.

    And about people being scared off, my opinion is: Let your pictures do the talking; why worry about some prank comments?

    Cheers

    I'm allowing it stay there for 24 hours before removing it, to facilitate the PBase team to investigate into this matter, and to clear Oeyvind of his name.

    Glad you like the pics.

    Yes, why worry? I can simply delete it off. No problem for me. However, on the other hand, being a network administrator, I'm pretty annoyed about such issues, and I will fully support Oeyvind in persuing this matter.

    The impersonation is an attack on a person's integrity. In this case, that person is oeyvind, but if this is not addressed and set as an example, may in future be you. Effectively, the perpetuator has stolen the one thing that is most valuable to oeyvind or anyone else, which is his identity.

    Should the fact that it may be a slim chance to trace the person successfully be a hindrance? Have you ever bought Toto or a lucky draw ticket of any sort in the hope of winning a prize? The chances of winning is so much smaller, yet why did you buy it?

    Hence I do not see why the effort to trace the perpetuator should be discouraged. In fact, I find it mind-boggling that someone can discourage this. What does one hope to achieve by doing this?

    Magistrates' Complaint

    find out what you can do....you may or may not need a lawyer.

    2. What if I do not know the identity or the address of the person against whom I am complaining ?
    You may still make the complaint, and if the complaint discloses an offence punishable by law, a Magistrate can direct the police to investigate the matter.

    You have accurately pointed out that the next victim could be anyone.
    You are encouraging Oeyvind to pursue this so that u and I will not be a victim next time.

    But the cost and effort for tracing down and punishing the perpetrator is Oeyvind's. Going with your arguments that this is for the greater good, is the government going to pay the legal fees incurred, or is the community going to help fund this hunt for the perpetrator?

    From my perspective, it will be much better to exercise caution on our own part in future. For instance, refrain from posting mobile numbers online, or even unnecessarily publicising ur email addy (which might not be possible for some). Some people might also benefit from maintaining a clear and calm mind when posting so that they do not make enemies online too often. Civility in postings can help greatly too.

    There ARE people who do not gamble....

    One thing I've learned from lawyers is that some cases might not be worth pursuing. Imagine going after every tom dick and harry that copies the design of your website. The cost effectiveness isnt there. You can have a rock solid case, but is it worth the cost involved? What do you get out of it??

    To each his own opinion then.

    For those that think why I made it such a big deal to come clean here:

    For those that doesn't seems to know what the offence is all about. This is not copyrights or vandalism issues, but using my identity/email address/mobile number to post not so nice messages on other's galleries.

    This is outright character assassination... the very same message was posted to all the pbase gallery in the free model shoots as comments.

    I did not know about this until I got a SMS from one of his/her victim, which also followed by PM from his/her victim asking my intend?

    not entirely.... if it's a police case, then the cost will also be indirectly borne by taxpayers.

    if it can be proven that the perpetrator is guilty of mischief and harassment, then he can be liable to pay for oeyvind's legal costs and damages in addition to his own fine.

    Well, I guess one of the first questions the police will ask (if they decide it's worth their time) is "Have you OFFENDED anyone recently? Online?"

    This (extremely free) joker apparently has a big grudge against you....

    not necessarily..... jealousy can also be a motive.
