Annika von Holdt. Com has been alive since sometime in May, 1998. It has gone through many shapes and forms, moods and ambiances since then. We kept our html-documents and links up to date, typed a lot words, posted a lot of pictures. We liked it here. However, we came to a point where we had enough – somewhere around April, 2007, as it was, where it seemed that anybody with a dirty mind and access to a keyboard was typing words and phrases – void of punctuation, logic and direction – and opinions reliant on short-form communication, that closes all sentences with a LOL and posting them all over the fucking place under cover of unisex first names, and we lost interest in the game; The last couple of years, this website has been a waste of space pretty much like that 5-8 inches space between the bottom of a disrespectfully tall teenager’s shirt and the top of his over-sized trousers, ignored by its owner and just about everyone else too. But we’re back with a fresh layout and good intentions to blog and update on a more regular basis.
So, welcome back. Although you should know, we’re not as sweet as we used to be:
This web-site now runs an arsehole detector plug-inTM, that automatically collects and stores information about you, including, but not limited to: your name, address, current location, telephone number, credit-card information, weight, age and sexual orientation. We elect to share this information with every telemarketer we can think of, and any third-party, including stalkers, wankers and perverts, who care to listen. And everyone else too.
Because image-stealing is rude and pisses us off.
What is image-stealing and what is an arsehole?
It’s pretty simple. And there’s no get-out-of-jail free card on this;
1. If you take a photo from the internet, and you post that photo, without permission, somewhere (i.e., your website, blog, social media profile etc.), you’re an image-stealing arsehole.
2. If you take a photo from another image-stealing arsehole, alas, you don’t know the original image source, and you’re thinking that is a “legit” excuse, you’re an ignorant image-stealing arsehole.
3. If you post a photo that is not yours, thinking the source, surely, should be flattered that you like their photo enough to post it as your own, you’re an image-stealing arsehole who deserves to be slapped in the face, repeatedly, with a used tampon.
4. And your bad manners and culture of personal entitlement just proves the point.
Don’t beat us with a sack of righteous indignation just yet: If you are not an arsehole, as such, who forgot to download the world memo from the international copyright HQ that says stealing is not sexy, using our images on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter – without permission or credit – to promote your sewage business or “inspire” your clueless douchebag followers and friends, generally behaving like six shades of ignorant, or otherwise being annoying, you can disregard the above, kick back and get comfortable here on annikavonholdt.com.
Because we are all about sharing and being friendly.
