Hmmm, now the manatee pic has been removed with the following note:

Not to stir the pot even further and no disrespect to Marc, but if it was taken down for a copyright violation, isn't that DQ'able? And if it didn't infringe on any copyright, why remove it?

Well the way I understand it, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act requires site owners to comply to these types of requests immediately. It's sort of a guilty until proven innocent philosophy so it might not be bad thing to hold off on DQing the photo until proper ownership of the photo has been established.

There was no DMCA claim made in this case. The image was not disqualified.

I say kudos to ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' LydiaToo for the rewrite. (I wonder if I could get her to rewrite my new camera manual).

Being new to the site, I read the first page, then read the last page, probably missing out half a dozen pages of to and fro, and I gotta say that Lydia's proposed new wording is a lot clearer.

I do think a rewrite is in order. Leaving the rule as written is asking for another uproar after another person reads the rule, punctuated as it is, and submits... ribboning and getting it taken away.

A simple comma, even, will help the issue.

As it's written now, it is not stating what it's intending to state.

But, I'm not on the site council, and I now understand how they mean the rule to read, so I will not be affected either way personally.
