[I will attribute with a link if I have used one of several good comics (in a sort of "go here to see more of this great stuff" way) but if this is unacceptable to the creator, please let me know at the email below and I will remove it. Many images are viral memes (on Facebook or G+) and lack legible copyright information (or any copyright information at all). I may also have inadvertently shared an image from a third party that was less discriminating about where they got it. I honestly do try in good faith not to make money off the creative efforts of others. If I have used your image in an unacceptable way, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know what you'd like me to do: remove the image, attribute it, give you a shout out with a linkback, anything*. If I can't comply, I will simply remove the image immediately.]

[I am currently in the process of canibalizing old potpourris to form new ones. Many of my copyright indiscretions in old entries were back when this blog was getting less than 100 page views a day, but it is absolutely improper for me to make money off the work and creative efforts of others, so I am in the process of removing those images. If I missed one, please let me know at the email above and I will remove it.]
