Another One (Unknown) Added To Wall Of Shame

Original Post Date- 6/5/16, 2:38 AM Central Standard Time

First of all, for those of you who have
commented on my Wall Of Shame page or posts,
thank you for reading, your positive messages
& passing the information along.
I sincerely appreciate your support. =)

Last week I received a message in my
Facebook messages from a friend who alerted me
to a Russian site/ blog who is sharing my FTU kits.
I don't get on FB much these days,
so I didn't see this message until earlier tonight.

When I clicked the link provided,
I saw many of my FTU kits posted on this site
& items were posted individually out of their zipfiles
for anyone to just save what they wanted. >.<

Also, when looking to the left side of the page,
I saw there were links for other designers' kits
being shared in the same manner as well. >.<

You can see for yourselves by looking
on my proof below.

*Note: I am not including the web address to this site,
since I know there ARE people who would go there
only to 'steal' items for their own use & nothing more.

You should be able to click on these to get a
better/ bigger pic. ;)

Does seeing this piss me off? You Betcha! >.<

Words cannot describe the rage I'm feeling right now.
And I'm not pissed just because they're sharing my items, 
I'm pissed because this person has NO regards to anyone
At. All. 
& in turn is f*cking others over as well. >.<
 
Many of you who know me or have followed 
my blog, know I advocate for those who have been 
ripped off, pirated, etc.
Seeing this does not sit well with me at all. 
My 'faith' in the PSP community 
has been dangling by a very precious, fragile thread 
as it is & that frayed thread is about to break.
 
Unfortunately, at this time I won't be offering 
any more freebie kits. I'm very sorry to do this, 
but until I can figure out something I really have no choice. 
 
I love giving out kits & trying to make them reasonably 
big enough so a person can use them hopefully more 
than once or twice- since I know there are people
who love tagging but can't always afford to buy kits. 
I enjoy giving back to the community 
as much as I can, but when I have had my kits ripped 
by three different so-called 'designers',
been screwed over by a few who were on my CT team 
who only was there to get kits & then not work them, 
having tags ripped, etc. & now seeing this,
I seriously just want to throw in the towel & walk away. 
 
The only 'positive' thing I can see about this 
is that thankfully it's only my FTU kits this person 
is sharing- to my knowledge, thus far.
But again, it makes me reluctant to offer 
any free kits when I know they're getting shared illegally. 
It makes me feel bad for not wanting 
to give kits to you guys.
I feel like I'm punishing those of you 
who are smart enough to abide 
by a designers' TOU & respect those TOU. 
 
For now going forth, I will only be offering 
FTU cluster frames. 
They will have a TOU included with them.
Again, I apologise, but this will have 
to suffice until I can think of a way to 
make my FTU kits available without worrying 
about them being shared like this.
 
Thank you for reading this. 
And thank you even more for your understanding. =)
If you are a designer (I'll need proof, btw) that has read this 
& you've seen your name listed on the left 
in the screen grabs above, 
message me if you choose, for the link to the site.
