That's weird. This bit used to mention Shire Games, and tell you all how wonderful we are. But it seems to have got deleted. Let's see what happens this time ....

Not mine originally, obviously.

But here's an interesting thing from Twitter ...

The pictured don't look like an exact match.

I thought that, but I think they are.

But they haven't used the entire picture ... It's a zoomed in bit of the central area of the original.

Ridiculous reach here because even if true this all assumes that he himself designed and built the website which of course he didn't. I don't like SOPA either but stuff like this only makes the person who made the post look a fool.

I'm familiar enough with the "back story" upon the matter, and that photograph were granted 'Public Domain' status BY the photographer, with SOME 'stipulations' appended. The initial 'violation' is where it isn't 'accredited' to him at all then, even for what portion(s) are being seen or used from that, while uses FOR monetary, political, etc. GAIN, have to be approved FIRST with him on anything. It doesn't appear that any attempt were made in these regards.
