A post that freaked me out

This post about a pedophile that stole a picture of this blogger's deceased child off her blog really freaked me out. 

I mean really freaked me out.

In fact, right after I read it I put a plug in onto my blog that prevents people from stealing awesome pictures of my kids like these.  And I'm urging you to put the same plug in on your blog

Because as much as we don't like to admit it.  Sometimes the people viewing our photos aren't the nicest of people.  Sometimes their intentions aren't the same as ours.

If you are using blogger add the plug in to a HTML/Java script gadget and put in on your blog.

<script language="JavaScript"> function click() { if ((event.button==2)
(event.button==3)) { alert(" \n\n Copyright Alert!")}}
document.onmousedown=click </script>

Do I think this is going to stop everyone?  Hardly.  Do I feel a little bit better knowing that I made it a tiny bit harder?  Yep.  I sure do.

So scary. Thanks for giving us that info.

What exactly is that plug supposed to do? I just clicked on those pictures and tried to save them {to see what would happen if I did} and it worked. I just deleted them from my computer. I would really love to have something like that on my blog though!

I don't think your plug is working. I simply right click, choose save as, and viola - I have a jpg picture that opens and can be used in any way I want.

So you might want to think this through a bit and check what is going wrong.

Oh MY God.

And now my husband's insistence that I not use ANY photos of our child on my blog is not looking as paranoid as it used to be.

God people are sick.
