Scary Drag Queen Trying to Destroy Me!


Bunnies - I've been ATTACKED! Some internet company (which shall forever remain nameless) has accused me of stealing their hottie pictures - which you can find freely find on about 4,000 websites/blogs other than their own.

The conversation yesterday started out civilly enough. I got an email from the "Publicity Director" of the company, who I think is a Drag Queen (anyone with "Lady" in their email address has GOT to lip synch on the weekends). "She" said that I could either delete their crap, sign up for their partnership program, or get sued.

I explained that suing wouldn't do anybody any good - except cost them a bunch of money on attorneys. Goodness knows I don't have a pot to piss in, so they would end up in at the back of a long line of creditors trying to get cash outta me. I also explained that since I have never featured any advertising on DavidDust, I haven't profited from any pics (or anything else) on this blog. So I asked her about the partnership program, and Miss Thang seemed eager to get me onboard - especially after I told her about my large following and page views/vistors stats.

Basically, they wanted me to pimp their porn on DavidDust, in exchange for a percentage of the profits. I had some questions about "keeping it classy" (you know how I roll) and some other issues - but I was truly thinking about doing it. After all, I could use the money.

All of a sudden I get an urgent email saying that HER BOSS WAS MAD! Ooooohhh ... scaaaary!! I needed to go back to all posts that contained their pics and insert proper attribution. This was to be done "IMMEDIATELY".

I explained to her that at that particular moment I was at my day job and did not have time to go through my entire 1 1/2 years of blogging. But if she could provide me with a simple list of the posts in question, it would speed the process up greatly. And they would certainly have to create a list if they were truly going to sue me - so why not save money on attorneys and just give me a list?!?

She then told me (and I paraphrase) that I "KNOW WHICH PICTURES SHE'S TALKING ABOUT - SINCE I STOLE THEM FROM HER COMPANY!"

DragQueenSayWhat?!? Oh no she di-int. I explained to the "Lady" that I NEVER got any pictures from any of their websites. I obtain all the pics on DavidDust from various third party blogs all over the internet - and I don't have the time or capacity to keep records of the origin of each and every picture. I EXPLAINED AGAIN THAT I WOULD BE HAPPY TO DELETE ANY/ALL SPECIFICS PICTURES/POSTS THAT SHE CLAIMED BELONGED TO HER COMPANY - but she needed to tell me which ones. After all, how am I supposed to know what is hers and what isn't?

So last evening I started going through my blog in the hopes of finding these "outlaw" photos. When I came across a post that may have contained some of their pictures, I deleted the pics (as per their instructions) and inserted this explanation...


Obviously, Lady K (not her real name) was the Drag Queen who made all these accusations/demands. And Lady K owns EVERYTHING! Everything is HERS!. Above is the picture I stole ... er ... FOUND of her. Actually, this isn't REALLY Lady K - just what I imagine Lady K looks like. Except she's probably not as pretty as the tranny in this picture. Mad props to Kayce for helping with the graphics.

So, if you happen upon an old DavidDust post featuring Lady K, you'll know what happened.

I got a similar email yesterday from Bob Paris' website, telling me to take down the Hot Shot I had of him. Maybe I should just stop my Hot Shots.

she's a drama queen.

frogponder said...

This sounds suspect in a lot of ways... I am most suspicious. I would stick with removing any with the wildly creative picture and have nothing else to do with this *lady*.

Beth said...

WTH???? Puh-leeze. You MUST be doing something right Tranny...if you have all these "high powered" people after you now. Keep it up!!!! ;)

XOXOXOXOXOX

Something's fishy here. Any legitimate company that is going to come after you would have had a cease and desist drawn up that detailed all the photos they claim you stole. That is the first step for any artistic/copyright infringement lawsuit. And news for Lady K...it's hard to get an email to stand up in court, despite what she saw on Law and Order. Legal requests must be hardcopy.

I'd investigate this more carefully, if you get the time. Something's rotten and it ain't just Lady K's crotch.

neulicious said...

OH NOOOO en i jus luv's me dem mens pix u gots.....that tranny is atrocious......i hope she emailed every other site also.....

mikeinbama said...

I had someone try to pull that bullshit with me and I told them to fuck off. I told them if they wanted to waste their time and spend money to get me to take off a couple of pictures they were more than welcome.

Howard said...

I agree with Jennie. Having been thru a similar situation while working at a print magazine, the complainant must supply a detailed list of the pictures, when and how they were used. And since there is no monetary gain on your part, they would be hard pressed to receive any for of payment for pictures used in editorial.

I could be wrong. But I doubt it.

Beth said...

I agree with the other commenters who think that something is rotten in Denmark. This all seems very fishy and sounds like an attempt to get you to subscribe to their service. DE-nied!

Tivo Mom said...

You know you are important if Drag Queens are coming after you. If a picture is out there than it is fair game in my opinion. Just don't stop doing what you are doing. Maybe more people look at your stuff than theirs and they are really jealous.

Jimmy said...

A pox on the bitch.

Wonder Man said...

what is happening here, if the pics are on the web without a warning, then they should be free...I'm not understanding this.

And they have to provide a list of the pics in question

Cogito said...

So THATS what drag queens do during the day!

thegayte-keeper said...

she should be glad that you are using her image...don't see what the big deal is...

Anonymous said...

WTF, what is her (maybe his, as you insinuated) problem? That ugly-ass travestite cannot tell you to remove those hot pics from your awesome blog like that, especially when they are free and you didn't violate someone else's intellectual property because you never said that you produced them! What is this B.S? Maybe it's the start of the Anti-Bunny Conspiracy... This is getting scary right now!

Mark in DE said...

That is so ridiculous! If they don't want the photos "borrowed", they should post them in a format that doesn't allow you to snag them. Just ask Bravo how to do it, because you sure can't snag any photos from that site!

Show you're right.

mistress maddie said...

Now what in hell are they going to do? It every single website and blog on the internet to see the pictures? That will take these tranny messes years to complete.

mischa said...

eeek! It's a picture of moi with my bird.

Berry Blog said...

the whole thing smells of scam, but I'm sure it would cause a little jump in my belly without thinking it over.I think you called the bluff effectively and succinctly and the writer couldn't produce anything concrete. Screw em.
On the other hand, I always try to give credit when I can and it might be a good policy. it seems you do very very often.

Marker said...

"Drag queen say what"???

DDust, that made my night. (Not your hassles with this internet hag, your post on said hag.)

Is there any way you could provide some clues as to which purveyor of porn Miss Thing is claiming to represent? That way, those of us who consume said commodity might think twice about patronizing her bitchy company.

LOL @ all comments above!! Go Dust Bunnies!

"Something's rotten and it ain't just Lady K's crotch." Awesome.

Miss Ginger Grant said...

It's a scam to try to get you to sign up for her "service" which probably doesn't have any more rights or claims to the photos than you do! Let her try to sue- Bunny Nation will leap to your defense!

Renee said...

I think it's a scam too. DragQueen would have had the list of pix all prepared before she contacted you if this was legit.

DragQueen is probably just jealous that your blog is more popular than her skanky site.

And I thought I could be a royal bitch! Damnation!
