Dear Self-Elected Cyber Police,
1. I think you are misinformed. I do credit images when I know the original source. I also “reblog” images that are not credited and don’t see it necessary to censor an aesthetic sensibility due to the lack of a recognized author.
2. No, I don’t feel stupid. Sometimes I post images for reasons other than it’s historical or intended content. Is that okay with you?
3. No I haven’t heard of the image reverse search - just looked it up…looks awesome. However, I don’t think I am going to do that for all the images I post. For this blog, I’m typically more interested in aesthetic appropriation in blatant and shameless accordance with postmodernity, and pastiche - more specifically tumblr.
Thank you for your efforts in upholding antiquated paradigms of originality and knowledge dissemination and for your (surely valuable) time patrolling and policing the inter-webz.
