And as long as we are talking generalities, it has been my observation that people who emphasize their copyright restrictions in their profile and place borders and cursive signatures or watermarks on their photos are the ones least likely to have to worry about the theft of intellectual property. Just throwing that out there. And, come on, HDR is way overdone.
