TBBT. Penny; not enough wtf in the world

grow. up.

People of the internet:

Please stop stealing other people's graphics from Tumblr for your own personal use and not, at the very least, crediting them. It isn't hard. It's just a few letters and a link, acknowledging that what you are posting is NOT your own work.

Also, I don't want to hear the argument that it's all public property because, as someone who can barely get Photoshop to behave most days, I know a lot of fucking work can go into coloring some of those edits. It's the exact same thing as lifting whole passages of someone else's fic and reposting it in your own journal. You wouldn't want it to happen to you. So don't fucking do it.

(Note: this is not aimed at anyone in particular, but more the dozen or so people I've seen do it in the last week.)
