    Hopefully, this is also an eye-opener for major corporations… what were the odds of that girl, or someone that girl knows… actually seeing that ad? :shock: Ouch! I bet they’re gonna pay-out for it…

    And as for the pictures we post online for others to see in blogs, ect.? Hell… niggas be jackin’ each other’s flicks for flyers! …and be living in the same damn CITY!

    …so like i was saying without having answered the question… :) “to share to not to share?”

    I say, share what you want the world to see! Cuz if you’re thinking that your file’s viewing… will be left to only those that YOU show them to… then you’re using the wrong platform to do so. Email it/them to those people personally… otherwise… don’t put your shit out there at all.

We would love to hear your comments
