On the Eagles board today I noticed a bot Picsearch it's been hanging around for hours so I go to www.picsearch.com this bot pickups photos off all web sites and posts to theirs it is a Swedish out fit

There was a photo of my Eagle when it was blue where they got it I will never know (says it was lifted from BusnUSA),if your photo or your bus is on a web site you are world wide and famous seem like

 I saw Eric Browns bus there on a BCM  cover and Andy Wright Eagle on a for sale site.

No hiding now guys lol  

I am a little to private for this sorta of stuff to be world wide guess that is why it is www.com

Just for fun I went to that site and typed in "skoolies". On page 1 there are 6 pics that I posted! Page 2 has 3 more! Okay, that's down right creepy.

I was forced to join Faacebook because a couple of tech's I use switched to it.  Recently I uploaded many photo's of a trip to Viet Nam to my Photobucket account.   They all ended up on Facebook! And God knows where else.   I had no intention or desire to put them on FB and am offended that they are there.Not offended, angry, how dare they!!!!

 Hotmail recently changed to Outlook Express and without my consent my FB photo goes out with each Email I send.  I have yet to figure out how to stop it.

 Once  a photo is posted it is no longer mine but belongs to the web.  I don't like this at all. Whats nest? I put money in an online account and some company in Sweden takes it.  JIm

Just curious, what are these things looking for?

I have thousands of pictures on the web in various places. I just did some searches using everything I could think of relating to pictures I have taken. The only ones that came up are on two web sites belonging to other people that gave me credit for taking the picture. Nothing from any of my web sites.
Even if I do a search of the exact name of the picture I posted, I get a lot of pictures that have names that aren't even close.

I did a search of "skoolies" and only came up with 13 pictures, none of which look like anything Lorna might have posted. If I leave off the s I get a lot more pictures, but very few of school buses of any type, and again maybe one or two that I think Lorna might have posted. Why is my search different than hers?

Using google images I came up with more hits that do have my pictures. Just typing my name brings up a lot of pictures that I have taken, none of me.

Its all for money. Every time you put a phone number picture or an idea even on any site or buy something on line beside all the law enforcement agency reading it and taking notes so are insurance companies, marketing people. Insurance companies read your stuff to find stuff to win law suits etc. Then FB says opps we had a glich that let everyone see your pictures of your kids etc. R bad but we will fix that.Hello do you think they care? As long as they all are making money they couldn t care less.

    And there's a guy in Pennsylvania that posts photos of peoples' buses on his website "For Sale" with incredibly inflated prices on them.  I don't know if he will come try to buy your bus that would normally go for $18-20K for 30 or 40K when he has a buyer that has bit on his $90K price or is he tells them "Oh, you missed that bus, it was sold yesterday but I have a similar one for only $88K!"  But he's definitely been posting photos of people's buses online "For Sale" without their knowledge or consent.

My bus is still on the PA site more than 18 months after I bought it. They actually pulled the pic off ebay when it was posted there for less than a week, several months before I bought it. I emailed the PA site and told them the bus had been sold. They put "This bus has been sold!" across the pictures as if they had been successful in selling it. It is still there. I know of many busses they have done this on.

Folks, you would be talking about Sam Walker, or one of his websites. Avoid him like the plague. We have personal experience with him, and trust me, it isn't good. I bring this up every so often, mostly for the newbies. Anything attached to Sam Walker, don't walk, don't run, FLY AWAY!

Clifford, I hear you. When anything is up, it tends to stick around.
