Website

I am creating a website that will allow users to view some of the best high quality images of specific subjects of their interests, including sailing. If you happen to have any high quality sailing photographs, I would love to feature them on the site. Email them to me at wvnutt@gmail.com, and feel free to include a caption.

Please don't post multiple threads with the same message.

Also, as a photographer myself, I would have to ask what kind of protection from unauthorized use are you using to protect the images, and what kind of rights are we giving up by submitting the photos to you. There are already plenty of existing stock photography sites that can do this—so what makes your site worth submitting photos to? How will you be using them???

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Well, posting the message to two different threads makes me suspect his motives... fortunately, he's under the 10-post count and can't post a link at this point in time.


IMHO, generally, people who post the same message to start multiple threads are SPAMMERS....

I am also skeptical of this. Send high resolution images to an unknown e-mail address??? Sorry, I don't give away my stuff.



If you happen to have any high quality sailboats, I would love to feature them in my marina. Send them to me at wvnutt@gmail.com, and feel free to include a bottle of rum.

I cannot tell if this is or is not a solicitation for business. If it is, please take out an ad with sailnet as it violates our terms of service. If this is strictly for non-profit and fun, that is fine.

I do not think you are a spammer as you have participated in other threads in the past.

wvnutt's (West Virginia Nutt?) profile and post history shows him as a 20 YO owner of a 1983 Catalina 22. I believe he's a sincere young sailor, just trying to network with other sailors.

Cut the guy some slack.
