Actually, I was just addressing your attitude.
What makes you think that I in any way represent "America"?
(Please, when you comment - "Ah, America..." - about particular remarks, always use the Quote button and include enough text so we can see what you're talking about.)
I agree. But your comments have nothing to do with this photographer's reputation, just your grudge against him. You also seem fixated about the legality of his actions, but the punishment has been paid. Let me knock that chip off your shoulder.
I'd never heard of this photographer or the case against him - so I don't see how it's possible for me to have a grudge against him. I was just seeing where Slobodan's reasoning would take us.
Before you take it upon yourself to correct someone's "attitude" perhaps you should ask them something about their comments - it could be that what you've decided is their "attitude" is no more than your presumption and misreading between the lines.
Beside, you might make a mistake one day--I am sure you would not want to be defined by that mistake for the rest of your life.
To greater or lesser extent, that seems to be how human societies have always functioned, and with the growth of online social networks the weight given to reputation is obviously on the upswing.
