WTFIGOH, Northeastern Illinois University?

WTF is going on here?

It wouldn't be so bad if the pic was of somewhere in Bulgaria.
It's actually a pic of the Eastern and the Far Eastern Fells of Cumbria, England.
I should know, it's my image!

    Love the updated image! That did make me laugh.

    @Gayle - I can imagine the look on the assessor's face when this assignment is presented for marking 😯

    Seriously, though, I'd have thought that web-ethics would be a mandatory part of ICT education, especially with the author apparently being university-based.

    Thinking about it, it's not the image that's been ripped. Besides the page's colour-scheme similarity, the fact that the image is still linked to my blog is an indication that it's the page-code itself that's been swiped.

    Taking and editing the code isn't a problem as it isn't mine. The image that's loaded by the code, however, is mine. Methinks the "taker" needs some education about coding and consequences, hopefully somebody will put him/her right.

    Looks like the fun's over. The rogue author seems to have thought better of his/her actions and the site's been changed. Not a hint of contrition, though.

    I like the idea that they call them "corries" in Bulgaria as well.
