Shameless LEGO MOC photo thief of the day
Today's report comes with some sad news and with some great news. What's sad is that bedeimre from Belgium hasn't been tought that stealing is wrong. He decided to take my photo of Blanko 1.9 and post it to the official Lego Hero Factory gallery as if it was his own creation. Perhaps it's literally just a problem of education? Perhaps these kids aren't criminals at heart, they just don't know better? Spread the word on any Lego-related forums or communities you participate in. If you blog, blog this. Stealing is wrong. Mm-kay?
Now for the good stuff. Remember robo-G from my first shameless thieves post? He's gone. Well, at least all of his photos are gone. It seems that while one person's report of a theft isn't enough to get Lego's attention, if enough people make a noise, the big company will hear. Thus I extend a heartfelt thank you to all of you readers who contacted Lego to report robo-G's theft. I truly appreciate not only your support, but the fact that you, too, believe that theft is not only wrong, but completely unacceptable, no matter who it affects. Take a bow. I salute you all!
